Before I graduated from high school, I was part of the teens ministry in Acts Church called Acts Teens and we have our weekly service called Acts Teens Live. I was heading up the broadcast ministry in Acts Teens. As Covid-19 hit us last year and we went to MCO, we were forced to fully do services from the comfort of our own home and that's where the journey began. From the little that I know, I led the transition we had to make in terms of live stream to move our services online and from there we continue to grow with our knowledge and skills. Ever since then we continue to do our best to take our live streaming game to the next level and we continue to be eager to learn from the littlest to the biggest of things.

  • [SF-C1] Reaching the World Through Sports: Sports as an Evangelism Tool

Evangelism Explosion

Evangelism Explosion is a ministry that trains people how to share their faith in Christ and how to bring people from unbelief to belief. It utilizes a variety of components including prayer, actual on-the-job training where the experienced lead the inexperienced, and the principle of spiritual multiplication. Spiritual multiplication through discipleship is the key component, not just winning people to the Lord one-by-one (addition); but training those won to the Lord to win, and then train, others. In the Book of Acts we read that the disciples “multiplied” and “multiplied exceedingly.” This shift from addition to spiritual multiplication offers the one real hope of sharing the Gospel with a world population that is, itself, continually multiplying.

On-the-job training is another vital ingredient. By actually going out with experienced trainers in real life witnessing situations, people learn how to share their faith. Much like learning to fly an airplane would be impossible without actually getting in the cockpit, evangelism is difficult without leaving the confines of a classroom.

By learning small parts of the Gospel, each week, including Bible verses and illustrations, people incrementally grasp a Gospel tool that becomes a lifelong mission.

Othrs. Barbers

After being in the hairdressing industry for over 17 years, founder of Othrs. Lex Low found himself at a barricade in his career, which almost caused him to let go of it entirely. Even though he had come to own his very own salon, it could not mask the sense of mundanity and aimlessness in his career.

In search of real meaning in his work, Lex decided to make a radical move. He embarked on a soul-searching adventure by going back to basics. Back to basics meant giving haircuts; just haircuts – not at a salon, and not for any paying client. Lex stripped all he had been doing down to its essence to find the joy he first had when he pursued this career. He did that by visiting orphanages and old folks’ homes to give free haircuts. This decision resulted in a profound awakening that reignited his passion for hairdressing and ultimately redefined his career from there on.

Pursuing Liberty Under Christ (PLUC)

This ministry began in 2001. It all started when two men decided to meet and pray for a group of Christians struggling with same-sex attraction (SSA). Then, the group connects with Peter Lane of Exodus Asia Pacific (EAP). In September 2002, PLUC is officially made part of EAP, under Exodus Global Alliance. In 2003, Rev. Tryphena Law was introduced to the team and joins PLUC’s board. PLUC’s vision and mission are subsequently formulated, and in the same year, PLUC was officially registered as a company. PLUC seeks to assist individuals who desire restoration of their sexual identity to God’s original intention, empowering them to take ownership in maintaining moral and relational wholeness. PLUC’s anchor is Romans 12:2; “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.” We believe in the power of our Lord Jesus Christ to heal and restore the lives of homosexuals and those struggling with sexual identity issues.

Speaker(s): Rev. Tryphena Law

Rev. Tryphena Law is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God (AG) Malaysia. She is also the Executive Director of PLUC Events Sdn Bhd, an organisation in Malaysia that provides pastoral care and pastoral counselling for those struggling with gender issues.

Over the past 18 years, Tryphena has gained vast experience in counselling both struggling individuals as well as families impacted by gender issues. Her previous training as an educator has been a valuable asset in her advocacy efforts to bring awareness and enlighten communities of all ages and backgrounds on sexual identity, brokenness and recovery to wholeness.

Rhema Radio

The 1st Christian Online Radio in Malaysia.

There wasn’t enough intentional effort to create and curate Bible-based faith-inspired content. A lot of what is shared online is bad news. And even if there were Christian content, it was mostly from overseas - not from Malaysian voices speaking about Malaysian issues.

In early 2016, a group of us were introduced to each other and started planning towards the 1st Malaysian online Christian radio to meet this need. We spent 1 year in pre-planning before finally launching our very first show on Christmas of 2016. We have been releasing weekly shows since then.

Rhema Radio is a growing online community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of faith and the world. We believe passionately in the power of God’ s word to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world.

At home, she’s a dedicated mum to Zach and husband Tek Yan.

Having gone through the local education system herself, she came to realize that something key was missing. “I grew up in a school where success overrides values. But now I realize that a passion for people is more important than success,” she says.

That realization birthed a desire to be part of a school that would truly make a difference. Victory Academy is that school – a school that builds bright minds whilst nurturing Godly values; where teachers share their lives and knowledge, and where every single child is loved as God loves.
