Helping with 1030 Children’s Discipleship.
Organizing events for Children’s Discipleship – yearly camps, special events, special Sundays, family discipleship
Organizing Young Adult Events and the (yearly) EXPLORE Internship
Personal Discipleship with some of the Young Adult Women

Prayer Requests

Children’s Ministry:
In addition to all the weekly prep for CD lessons and the special events, there is a lot of background work involved in Children’s Discipleship.
Things like thinking through what the Bible says about bringing up children, shaping mindsets, thinking through how to better equip teachers and volunteers, how to cater better to our children’s need to grow and be challenged in the Gospel according to their pedagogical development, how to better partner parents and families and equip them for the task of discipling children at home.
It’s exciting and intensely daunting at the same time.
Do pray that God will be the one in control. Guiding and directing myself and everyone else I partner with in this ministry to do the work for His glory and to recognize His timing is better than ours.
Thank God for the faithful ministry partners He has placed to encourage myself & Aunty June in their readiness to help and support us. Pray for more to be raised – from every generation in this family of Zion Bishan.
Pray together with us, as we intercede for the children among us – that they will come to recognize the sinfulness and helplessness of their human nature and yet experience God’s love for them as they learn about the power of the Gospel and see it in action in the lives of those among them.

Young Adult Ministry (Women):
As I read the Bible with and ‘do life’ together with the YAs, pray that we will do the hard work of thinking about how the truths of the Gospel can apply to and be lived out in our lives.
Young Adult life is a season of many transitions and learning to take on big responsibilities. Pray for the YA community, that we will learn how to help each other see how we can be faithful to God in every transition and every season of life.
Pray that as we get convicted about the Gospel and God’s love for us in Romans, it will move us to be more outward looking – beyond ourselves, our AGs, our church, our country.

Personal:
Pray for Vernon and me as we begin marriage and a life of ministry together – for our eyes to be continually looking to Jesus and our hearts wholly devoted to Him.
We’re thankful for the church community God has placed us in and for how He has been providing for our spiritual, emotional and financial needs.

Personal:
Pray for spiritual discipline in setting aside adequate time for prayer and study of His word that my intimacy with the Lord will continue to deepen & grow.

Darrell Tan

Role & Responsibilities
I’m involved in the production of church-wide publications (e.g. weekly bulletin, stationery). I also work with our church Media team in co-ordinating church-wide design and media projects, including flyers, calendars, banners, photography, videos, book covers, etc.

Every media project is an opportunity and a challenge to visually communicate something accurate and relevant from God’s word and God’s truth, in a way that invites deeper recognition or engagement. Just as God gave understanding and skill to Bezalel, Oholiab, and the other craftsmen working on the tabernacle (Exodus 31), He also gives His church artistic ability and inspiration, which should be our joy to use in His service.

I’m also passionate about and contribute in the area of community development, involved in awareness and education efforts and training.

I’m also doing part-time theological studies, which have been beneficial in encouraging effective community development, and also in the area of communications — we need to design and to communicate with right biblical and theological understanding.

Prayer Requests

Ministry
Pray for God’s guidance for the design team, so that God’s truth may be clearly and inspirationally communicated to the church and the community outside.
Pray for my part-time studies to make steady progress so that I may be better equipped in ministry.

Personal
Please pray for God’s wisdom for me as a father, guiding my children to grow in faith.
