The Mandarin Ministry started on 17 January 1993 with the vision of one man -- Prof Khoo Oon Teik, who saw the need to evangelise those who only understood and could speak in Mandarin and other dialects. The annual Chinese New Year Dialect Outreach was first conducted in his own home and later at Wesley Methodist Church. Through the years, attendance at these outreach services steadily grew with more receiving Christ each year.
Now under the leadership of Rev Michael Tan, the Mandarin Service continues to grow. Baptism and membership classes are conducted three times a year.
We have a Resource Library which houses a collection of tapes, CDs and VCDs of Bible teaching and sermons conducted in Mandarin and in Hokkien and Teochew dialects. The dialect tapes have proved to be an especially invaluable tool of outreach to the elderly and dialect speaking non-believers.
