Pastor Luck Yong and missionary Mark discuss Christian leadership at the ARPC missions roundtable. What is a Christian leader? Someone who tries to influence people towards God’s purposes. Servanthood is not pleasing people but leading people to do what God wants them to do.
A leader puts together the jigsaw puzzle of the body of Christ to build them up. One of the privileges of leadership is being stretched. Christian leaders submit to God. Example: David submitted to King Saul and trusted God. The challenge of giving feedback to leaders. You grow as a leader by growing in your present circumstances. Example: Moses said God would make a way.

What happened when Judah crossed the line and continued in her wicked ways?

Christopher Chia preaches on 2 Kings 21-23.
Israel had many evil kings and Manasseh the one who broke the camel's back. He dashed all hope for Israel to walk right with God again. In God's Sovereignty, God prepared Josiah 300 years before he was born. He was a good king but it came too late to turn God's anger away. Why God did not send Josiah earlier? What hope do we have that God will keep His promise of an eternal king as exile is just round the corner. Pastor Joe Heng preaches from 2 Kings 21-23.
Pastor Chris preaches on the necessity to listen to God’s Word and opinion above all else. Passage: 2 Kings 18-20.
2 Kings 18-20 explores if Hezekiah would be the perfect and faithful King God has promised to David, who would trust God and deliver his people. However we see Hezekiah’s faith falters, and only Jesus the Son of David trusts God fully. Pastor Sern Khoon preaches.
Children often follow their parents and friends. The consequences of following others can be good or bad. What then were the consequences of who God's people follow? Listen to the sermon by Pastor Roger Chia on 2 Kings 17 to find that out.
Israel's two-timing with Egypt led to its downfall. But underneath, it was her two-timing with idols that earned God's wrath. Pastor Adrin Munoz preaches from 2 Kings 17 on the need to rid of idols in our hearts.
ARPC goes MAD (Missions At our Doorstep). There are many foreigners among us. Remember the love of Christ who died for us. Indeed Christ’s love compels us. Persecution is not an obstacle to evangelism. FEAR: false evidence appearing real. Suffering is expected for Christ’s followers. We overcome Satan with the armour of God. The power of one: “You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” One friend, one conversation, one prayer, etc.

Pastor Christopher Chia preaches from 2 Kings 9 on how God ends idolatry.
Listen to this sermon to learn from the Bible, how God is relentless in removing the idols of our lives, and how he is relentless in showing his grace to us. Pastor Lim Luck Yong preaches from 2 Kings 9-12.
2 Kings 4 & 5 showed us our God who will watch over those who remain faithful to God. If God will relentlessly pursue a wayward nation to turn back how much more will He will go all out to hear the cry of His faithful children. God's mercy also goes beyond Israel. A pagan army Commander of Syria has his health restored and spiritually transformed because of a God-fearing servant girl he captured from his conquest. Indeed nothing can stop the flow of God's steadfast love and mercy. Pastro Joe Heng preaches.
