"Three out of every four people will live in cities by
the year 2010. These centers of influence will shape much of
the rest of the world economically, politically, socially,
educationally and spiritually. What is done in the large,
strategic cities of the world will to a large extent determine
our success in proclaiming Christ to the world."
(International Community Ministry Consultation, Macau, 1997)
Leader-led Movement is about reaching the Influential Centres of the
world. For Malaysia, this means primarily the 5 major hub-cities
(Georgetown, Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu
which accounts for more than half the population).
Leader-led Movement began in 1996. By 1997, there were attempts to
build bridges with the corporate sector through "Life! An
Evening to Remember" pre-evangelistic dinner seminars. Also,
the CareerNet Ministry began as a means to network Christian
professionals who are keen to reach the marketplace. Today it has
evolved to become Impact! Ministries which aims to see every
Christian in the marketplace becoming an influencer in their office
-- hence the maxim "One Office, One Influencer". Today we
have Impact Groups in various corporations which help Christians
address issues in the marketplace from a Biblical perspective. This
will help them to become instruments in bringing about the reality
of their colleagues coming to know our Saviour.
By 1998, FamilyLife Ministry began. FamilyLife aims to serve as a
catalyst in motivating and equipping families nationwide to win one
home at a time for Jesus Christ and be used by Him in a Family
Reformation. Today, we partner with churches to run Marriage and
Parenting Seminars, and to help set up HomeBuilders small groups to
strengthen the foundations of the smallest unit in any society, the
Freedom Ministry, a ministry associated with Freedom in Christ
Ministries, brings the truth of our identity in Christ to believers
who are struggling with strongholds and uncertainties in their
relationship with Christ. Begun officially with Dr. Neil Anderson's
visit to Malaysia in 1998, today many believers around the country
learn about spiritual warfare and personal as well as corporate
freedom in Christ.
Our goal for this generation is to see our cities reached for
Christ. We dream of professionals blooming where they are planted and
becoming the salt and light in their workplace and home. We
visualize our cities aglow for Christ.
