PhD programme Admission Offer from University of Birmingham

Dear Friends

Through the Spirit of God who proclaims the healing of Jesus to all creation— grace, peace, and joy be yours in increasing fullness!

For your prayerful remembrance, I would like to update you on a new development that transpired over the past several months regarding my aspired PhD endeavours.

As many of you may recall, last year I was not able to go forward with my PhD programme with Bangor University (Wales, UK) due to financial constraints. By around May this year, I pretty much concluded that circumstances have virtually closed once for all, this aspiration for me. Yet then by June Dr Wolfgang Vondey, Director of the PhD programme for the Centre of Pentecostal Charismatic Studies (CPCS) under the University of Birmingham (UK), invited me to apply for their programme.

Vondey basically expressed two main reasons that prompted him. First was awareness that I could not go forward with the Bangor programme dues to financial constraints. He stated that there may be scholarships within the University of Birmingham that might substantially cover me through their programme. The other reason was having sat in on my paper delivery on a similar theme last March at the Annual Meeting for the Society for Pentecostal Studies, he took an interest in my intended research on Pentecostal liturgical theologies, as it falls within his own work and interests. Incidentally, the Journal for Pentecostal Theology published that paper in their fall 2018 issue.

So I followed through with his suggestions for revising my doctoral proposal, and completed all the application procedures by early August. Then by mid-October, the admissions office finally sent me an Admissions Offer, to begin the programme in October 2019, one year from now. Once started, I would have four years to write the dissertation. There will be no course work; just dissertation writing under Vondey’s monthly supervision, and a yearly trip to Birmingham (covered under the tuition fees).

Let me briefly describe the institution’s global stature, along with how my dissertation falls within its concerns. While statistics vary, the University of Birmingham’s Department of Theology and Philosophy (under which falls the CPCS) often ranks as the 24th top theology department worldwide. The CPCS is the world’s first Pentecostal/Charismatic Studies centre, created in the 1970’s by the late founder of “Pentecostal Studies,” Walter J. Hollenweger. For more information, you can visit the following link:

Meanwhile, Dr Vondey is presently one of the world’s premier Pentecostal theologians. His main expertise is Pentecostal liturgical theology; meaning, focus on how Pentecostal worship practices shape Pentecostal belief and spirituality. My dissertation would specifically focus on assessing emerging Pentecostal liturgical theologies worldwide, particularly to how they attend to the notion of Pentecostal “oral” liturgy (e.g., Pentecostal “oral”-based practices of worship).

Some have asked me what would be some practical implications of the dissertation. Well, it is really all about constructing a Pentecostal theology of prayer. So it is all about retrieving the relevant themes from Pentecostal spirituality and appropriating them towards the life of prayer; especially prayer that calls on the Father for renewed comings of the Spirit of Jesus, to renew the church in behalf of the world’s healing.

The Spirit of Jesus is filling
Sons and daughters of Pentecost
Who know their home at the altar of sacrifice.
From there they go, receiving from the Father
Many gifts for healing the world.
For the heart of God is an altar, where the burns the most flammable substance in all creation: His unfailing love. And this love generates— the fires of Pentecost.

Prayer requests / How you can help
I understand that at some point this month, the University of Birmingham will begin publicising their own sponsored scholarships and grants relevant to my programme. Once the university advertises these, I will start applying. Hence, for the next several months, I am now in something of a “race” to see if God willing, the means may all come together for this venture to begin next October.

Though the years go by, I remain passionate and increasingly passionate about one thing:
To preach the Pentecostal Full Gospel of Christ our Saviour, Sanctifier, Spirit Baptiser, Healer, and Coming King, and represent the Pentecostal tradition for the renewing of the Church worldwide, the saving of nations, and healing of creation.

Now ultimately, if it does not come together, I am ok with that, for to the best my conscience, I have strove to keep this long-held aspiration on the altar. Therefore, if it does not work, I do not see myself ever picking this up again. Yet for now, I fully feel prompted by God to follow through these steps before me— while also leaving the outcome in God’s hands and best for our future. I perhaps should also say that Jee Fong is fully behind me in this, and praying with me through the journey. Therefore, my postures is this: if it all comes together, thank God; and if it does not it— thanks be to God! Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Either way, I appreciate and solicit your prayer towards these matters and endeavours. And on a practical note, I value your involvement in any way possible, towards any new ministerial, church, organisational, or collaborative relations that may help foster these aspirations. So that together— we may seek and serve the up-building of the Church, the coming Kingdom, and the greater glory of God.

Let me share some thoughts from a message I recently preached from Ezekiel 37 titled, “Rattling Bones, Rising Hope, and Restoring Breath of Jesus”: Friends, your latter days are promising. For the glory of the latter house, shall be greater than the former house. Hope is rising, for reviving winds of God are blowing, and miracles are coming. For the one who runs before us – Jesus – pioneer and perfecter of our faith, is doing a new thing in and through us. The Spirit of Jesus shall raise your fallen seed a hundredfold, birthing for all nations— a harvest of peace, joy, and overflowing blessing. For this aim, the Lord blesses the fruit of your womb, the crops of your land, and the work of your hands. Only believe, receive, and sow for the coming harvest.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, God’s love, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit— increase and equip you with all good gifts of Heaven, that you may labour with God in His mission to heal the world.

The peace of Christ be yours through the power of God’s Spirit,




In the Bible we read about Moses at Mount Pisgah.
This might be Beach Pisgah, where see the boats sail.

But brooding can mean waiting, like the hen over her not yet born; or when the Spirit of God brood over the waters, giving birth to something new.

Reflections from SPS 2018 meeting

Through the relational encounters, stimulating sessions, and hospitable ethos, I have departed from the 2018 Society for Pentecostal Studies meeting with renewed passion towards serving the Pentecostal tradition— for the unifying renewal of the global Church.
While this was my seventh consecutively attended conference, I find myself again renewed in conviction that I am a son of the Pentecostal Full Gospel, a steward entrusted with its saving grace for the whole world, and servant to its message of Christ our Saviour, Sanctifier, Spirit-baptiser, Healer, and Coming King.
From varied sessions, several themes sustain my departing reflection:
“Church, where is your good news for the poor? Have we traded our prophetic voice for a seat at the table at the privileged?”
“Where the margins are, Pentecost explodes.”
“Let us pray for those who cannot pray, for ours is simple and humble faith.”
“Let us listen to the questions the Majority World is asking, and let their questions shape our answers.” (paraphrase from Carlos Cardoza Orlandi’s plenary session on “The Breath of the Spirit and Our Theological Vocation”)
Pentecostal spirituality envisions and fosters:
A way of salvation, where through Christ the Spirit grows us into God’s loving presence, healing us by re-ordering their affections towards His kingdom, and sending them us in mission with God in behalf of its coming.
A holy way that forms a new people who embody and enact holy love.
An apostolic way of life within the mission of God for the renewal of all creation.
Paraphrased points from Dale Coulter’s plenary session on “Recovering a Wesleyan Vision of Pentecostalism: Five Theses”).

Sounds of the poor – Pentecostal oral liturgy as primary theology

I just turned in my paper for the 2018 S Conference (Society of Pentecostal Studies /  This meeting (8-10 March, 2018) will be held at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary, Cleveland, Tennessee, USA.  The conference theme is one that strikes deep in my heart: “The Good News of the Kingdom and the Poor in the Land.”  The conference will address pentecostal/charismatic responses to issues of poverty worldwide.

To be presented under the Ecumenical Interest Group, I have titled my presentation: “‘Sounds of the Poor that Deify the Rich’: Pentecostal Oral Liturgy as Primary Theology.”  The paper reflects themes I earlier developed for the first chapter of my dissertation proposal that was early last year approved for the Center for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies under Bangor University, Wales, UK (For more information on this, see my web-page:

Let me share some brief lines evoking themes from the paper, followed by a few quotes from it that more expansively summarise those themes.

Paper themes:

What am I talking about?

I’m talking about sounds learned in poverty

Groans spoke in prayer too deep for words.

But these are the sounds of Jubilee

Empowering the poor by restoring voices

Releasing captives by healing bodies

Making them instruments of worship

Recovering sight to the blind

Through give dreams, visions, and prophecies.


Training us in the priestly ministry

Of Christ the Spirit Baptizer

Restoring to us historical purpose

And apostolic destiny

Foregrounding the poor as prophets of God’s coming kingdom.

For the ascetics of Pentecostal oral liturgy

Deify the poor as partakers of Christ’s reign

For theirs is the kingdom of God.

Yet these sounds can also deify the rich

When they too embrace, learn, and speak the tongues of Pentecost.


I’m talking about the Lord’s Prayer

Praying for the coming of God’s kingdom

That His Spirit may renew the earth.


I am talking about the base meaning of theology, as prayer.

And primary theologians— people growing in communion with God through the practices of prayer.

The Christian faith is really a prayer movement that continues the priestly ministry of Jesus by daily invoking the Spirit for the renewing of creation.  Pentecostalism is a renewal movement calling the greater Church to her priestly vocation.  As Steven Land argued in his 1993 ground-breaking monograph, Pentecostal Spirituality, A Passion for the Kingdom: “Pentecostal theology-as-spirituality” is “theologia” being “restored to its ancient meaning” as prayer.  And “prayer . . . . is at the heart” of Pentecostal “spirituality.”

Some quotes from the Introduction and conclusion


“An ongoing task in Pentecostal studies is identifying theological categories that articulate Pentecostal theology in manners congruent to the spirituality that underwrites Pentecostalism as a gifted theological tradition. . . .

I suggest as a more promising rubric, though perhaps more reminiscent of ancient Christian monastic asceticism.  The rubric I refer to is the patristic era’s monastic and thus ascetically rooted, Evagrian notion of prayer as theology (theologia).  This doctrine has deeply funded what we may call the contemporary liturgy as primary theology movement (LAPT).  Later I will demonstrate how two notions can be coalesced as what I shall call the Evagrian-LAPT grammar of prayer/liturgy.

In this paper, I suggest that the Evagrian-LAPT grammar provides us apt theological categories for theologically articulating Pentecostal spirituality, in manners methodically congruent to its intensely embodied oral liturgy, and practices of primary theologizing.  I thus believe that this grammar may prove especially helpful towards the growing focus in Pentecostal studies on the liturgical life of Pentecostalism.  I shall also suggest this as an apt orientation for articulating Pentecostal notions of liturgical theology, and theologically assessing current developments in Pentecostal liturgical studies, including construction of Pentecostal theology in manners that retrieve resources from the liturgical life of Pentecostalism. . . .

In Part One I will survey three historic warrants that substantiate the Evagrian-LAPT grammar as an apt language for theologically articulating Pentecostal spirituality, specifically attending to its liturgical practices.  I will first briefly summarize Evagrius’ prayer as theology doctrine.  I will then demonstrate how this doctrine funded the LAPT movement, and review its main themes.  I will then analyze Steven Land’s ground-breaking 1993 monograph titled, Pentecostal Spirituality, A Passion for the Kingdom.  I shall demonstrate that his monograph substantiates the grammar by showing how it was a direct by-product of the LAPT movement, thus describing Pentecostal spirituality through the Evagrian-LAPT grammar.  In Part Two I will retrieve from LAPT proponent and Roman Catholic liturgical theologian David W. Fagerberg, three important LAPT terms: primary theology, liturgy, and ascetics, to suggest ways that the Evagrian-LAPT grammar proves helpful towards research in Pentecostal liturgical theology.  I will thus suggest how this grammar helps clarify the meaning of pertinent foci within Pentecostal spirituality; specifically: Pentecostal primary theology, liturgy, and liturgical ascetics.

In Part Three, drawing on Walter Hollenweger’s work on Pentecostal orality and oral liturgy, along with Jesuit priest and anthropologist Walter Ong’s seminal work in orality studies, I shall delineate the shalomic efficacy of pentecostal oral liturgy and the oral epistemology operative through its liturgical practices.  More specifically, I shall argue that an important moral warrant for understanding Pentecostal orality as the liturgical ascetics of Pentecostalism, lies in their observed efficacy towards empowering the poor and lower social-economic people into higher levels of shalomic flourishing.  Yet as Hollenweger similarly argued, I shall also show how the primary oral-literacy of the world’s poor in contrast to the print-literacy and evolving IT secondary orality of the world’s rich, raises an important ecumenical task for today’s world Pentecostalism.  Namely, the task of reconciling these contrasting gifts and the people they represent as requisite towards the Christian vision of true shalomic flourishing.


In Part Three, I delineated the shalomic efficacy of Pentecostal oral liturgy and the oral epistemology operative through its liturgical practices.  I thus argued how these ascetics empower the world’s poor into higher levels of shalomic flourishing.  I also argued that when the rich embrace the poor and their primary orality epistemological giftedness, they too become empowered towards shalomic flourishing and true humanity.  Hence, I also argued that an important ecumenical task for today’s world Pentecostalism is the task of reconciling these contrasting gifts of rich and poor, not only for the uplift of the poor but that the rich be humanized through the primary oral epistemological giftedness of the world’s poor.

Therefore, the liturgical ascetics of Pentecostal oral liturgy prophetically signify, and efficaciously function, as the sounds of Jubilee.  For the orality that characterizes Pentecostal liturgical ascetics are sounds proclaiming the year of the Lord’s favour (Luke 4:18-19).  They are the sounds of good news empowering the poor, by restoring their voices, releasing captives by healing their bodies as instruments of worship, and recovering sight to the blind through the giving of eschatological hope through dreams, visions, and prophecies.

Pentecostal liturgical asceticism thus liminalizes the world’s poor into the riches of God’s coming kingdom.  Training them in the priestly ministry of Christ the Spirit Baptizer, it capacitates them with restored eschatological horizon and apostolic destiny, foregrounding them as prophets of His coming kingdom.  For the ascetics of Pentecostal oral liturgy, deify the poor as partakers of Christ’s reign, for theirs is the kingdom of God.  Learned in poverty, there are groans spoke in prayer too deep for words.  Yet the sounds of the poor deify the rich, as they too embrace, learn, and speak the tongues of Pentecost.

  • Conclusion

Mission / Passion / Vision

When I was on staff in a large Anglican church in 2006, the Lord clearly told me that I am to represent the pentecostal tradition, and minister its full gospel message of Christ our Saviour / Sanctifier, Spirit Baptiser, Healer, and Coming King.  Over the years since then, this conviction has become within my soul, further clarified.  Let me share this with you.

Life mission

To preach the Gospel for all creation, fostering pentecostal spirituality and its theological tradition worldwide— for the unifying renewal of the global Church.

Passion / Vision

I have a vision that impassions me.  It flows direct from the mission I believe God has given me.  I believe that this cause should navigate the ongoing outcome of my life.  It is a mission that impassions me with a vision of:

  • The global renewing of pentecostal spirituality
  • And the growing renaissance of this tradition’s theological tradition
  • In ecumenical service for the unifying renewal of the Church of God worldwide and the greater glory of God.

Believing I have a part to play for this great cause, to it I have committed my life before God.  Both my wife Jee Fong and I are thus ready to go wherever its labour may take us, that we may fulfil this mission for the good of the global Pentecostal tradition and the worldwide Church of God, the saving of all nations, the healing of creation, and the glory of God.

Present Ministry Endeavours / Some Milestones on the Way

Let me share with you my present ministry endeavours, what has been achieved, and relevant prayer requests.  You may get a better picture of this by viewing my Curricular Vitae and Speaker Profile (web-links provided below).  I preach within a given year’s time, about once month in different churches or settings.  Within those venues, this has gone well.  So as time goes by, I feel the Spirit’s quickening, the fire in my bones, and God’s pleasure when I proclaim His Word.  As earlier stated, my aim is that people encounter Christ who saves, sanctifies, baptises in the Spirit, heals and reigns as coming King over all creation.  I believe I should be preaching or delivering some kind of speaking engagement at least three to four times a month.  Please pray then, for expanding open doors, as we move towards 2018.

Please pray also for my 18 November workshop on “Preaching the Epistles,” for the Eagles Communications ARETE Programme.  Eagles Communications is a well established parachurch ministry, focusing on leadership and development and the preaching ministry.  ARETE is a 1.5 year mentoring programme for preachers.  Eagles told me that my same workshop last November was very well received.  I am thus looking forward to this upcoming event.

Finally, I am still getting my writings published in books, journals, and other mediums.  Most recent is an essay I wrote for Thomas Oord’s volume titled, Theologians and Philosophers Using Social Media: Advice, Tips, and Testimonials (SacraSage, 2017).  This book is currently ranked first on Amazon as the best-selling book in Religious Studies Education.  I was honoured to be included in this volume, as many of its contributors are influential trend-setting leaders in their respective fields.

Now in spite of these varied endeavours, I have out of a salaried role (or regular income) since 2006.  To help make ends meet, I have over the past ten years been doing a lot freelance motivational training for youth.  However, oftentimes this not generated sufficient income meeting many of our basic needs; we have lived on a very tight and short shoestring.  Therefore, may I therefore seek your prayer for my return to a more “full-time” ministerial role and/or setting.  Namely, one that would enable me to fulfil the mission and vision that God has impassioned for.

This has lately been my prayer (I call it the “Way” prayer):

Show us Lord not a way, but Your way.

Grant us the open door that none can shut.

And as you show us Your way, may we let Your whole world

Set the horizons before us, that we may go and come wherever You send us

In the fullness of Christ’s blessing.  Amen.


Approved Paper Presentation for 2018 SPS Conference

(March 18 USA trip)

In earlier August I received news that my paper proposal for the 2018 SPS Conference (Society of Pentecostal Studies /  This meeting (8-10 March, 2018) will be held at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary, Cleveland, Tennessee, USA.  The conference theme is one that strikes deep in my heart: “The Good News of the Kingdom and the Poor in the Land.”  The conference will address pentecostal/charismatic responses to issues of poverty worldwide.

To be presented under the Ecumenical Interest Group, I have titled my presentation: “‘Sounds of the Poor that Deify the Rich’: Pentecostal Oral Liturgy as Primary Theology.”  The paper reflects themes I earlier developed for the first chapter of my dissertation proposal.  Namely, the power of pentecostal oral liturgy (e.g., how pentecostals worship) towards empowering the world’s poor.

God willing, this will be my sixth presented paper in seven consecutive SPS annual meetings.  Let me share some aims to my part in this conference.  First, through it in at least a small way, I am helping towards the blossoming of world Pentecostal theology.  Second, this will be my four year of involvement with the Ecumenical Interest Group, which fosters conversations between Pentecostalism and other Christian traditions.  This helps our varied traditions learn from one another through the unique gifts God gives to each tradition.  The Ecumenical Interest Group thus regularly involves representatives from traditions, including Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and other Protestant groups.  Third, I am linking my local setting (Singapore and Southeast Asia), to conversations occurring amongst this international fellowship of ministry leaders, pastors, theologians, and scholars, on the role of Pentecostalism towards addressing poverty worldwide.


Accepted Placement in the PhD Programme of the Centre of Pentecostal & Charismatic Studies, Bangor University (Wales, UK) / Can’t Begin without a Way to Meet Tuition Fees

Last April I was scheduled to formally begin my PhD programme with Bangor University (Wales, UK), under the Center for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies.  I was privileged to have as my doctoral supervisor, Dr Frank D. Macchia, a world-class pentecostal theologian.  Visit his website at .  You will note that he is still maintaining my profile as one of his PhD students.

Unfortunately, I could not complete the procedure as I could not meet the first year’s tuition fee of £5,200 (US$6,300; four years total, plus a yearly meeting trip).  I have applied for a local scholarship, but my application was unsuccessful.

At the beginning of this year, I was starting a great working relationship with Dr Macchia.  He expressed a lot of optimism towards getting the dissertation journey off the ground.  The title is, “Towards a Pentecostal Liturgical Theology/Aesthetic and Practice of Sacred Time.”  Liturgical studies is an emerging and exciting new field within pentecostal scholarship.  I believe I have a substantial contribution to make to it.  So I would also like to see my eventual dissertation published.  While I am not able to presently begin the programme, I was advised to stay on the project, so that once God willing the means comes together, I am able resume the programme with greater speed.

Yet at this point, it seems only a great miracle can launch this endeavour any further.  There are friends worldwide who are praying that God would make a way.  Meanwhile, I believe I have done everything I can humanly do.  Therefore, this brings me back to the “Way” prayer.  For concerning this endeavour, its seem our prayer should not be so much as, “God show us a way,” as rather, “Show us Your way,” and the open door which none can shut.


Prayer Requests / How You Can Help

Broad prayer requests

Please pray for me and my wife Jee Fong.  Please pray that I may fulfil this mission and vision which God has impassioned for.  This brings me back to the “Way” prayer I earlier shared, which conveys important themes the Lord is pressing into me.  The “Way” pray retrieves these themes from Scriptures like Acts 16 (Paul’s Macedonian call) and Romans 15 (Paul moving outward— bringing pentecostal fullness worldwide).  To be faithful to the mission, and the vision God has shown us, I have shared with Jee Fong that we must be open for a “Macedonian vision”:

Lord, show us not a way; but show us Your way.

If not Bithynia, grant us a vision of Macedonia

Show us the open door that no man can shut

For I have heard the trumpet blow

I have felt the wind blow

I have seen the glory

Show us Your way

Send us through open doors that none can shut.

May Your whole world set the horizons before us

Sending us wherever and however

We might best come to all people

In the fullness of Christ’s blessing.

For now, these are the themes that shape our prayer and posture before God.  Now if the Lord would have us stay in Singapore for years to come, then we are ready for this.  Yet if He should move us out anywhere worldwide, we ready for that also.  We just want to be in the centre of God’s heart, will, and full blessing.  So in the meantime, please pray for expanding speaking and ministry engagements.  Please pray for my resumption to a more “full-time” ministry role and/or setting.  Pray that God would place us within the church / organisational / denominational / network setting(s) where we may best serve Him, His Church, His world, and His coming kingdom.


March 2018 USA trip for SPS paper presentation

As in these past years, my attendance next March depends on coming to God in prayer for all necessary expenses (plane fare, hotel accommodations, conference fees, etc).  It remains a big faith venture, wholly dependent on God’s miraculous provision for that which is beyond our present capacity.

Please note the following time-expedient items:

Conference registration fees

By 1 November, conference participants are required to have their registration and membership fees covered.  Because my income is limited, I need help with these expenses.


It would be best if I could secure airfare soon as possible (September-November), to avoid rising costs/limited seat challenges as we move closer to March 2018.

Your prayer towards these items is appreciated.  And if you are able to financially help, just let me know and we can arrange in ways that get the funds directly to these items.  I do immediately need help in meeting the conference registration fees.  I will then need help with airfare expenses, and the varied trip expenses (e.g., accommodations, etc)

Bangor PhD Programme

I will try not to unnecessarily repeat what I’ve earlier stated.  I am recognising that this aspiration may not come to pass.  I am not fully sure what to make of this, which has been a life-long aspiration.  I do not interpret this as something outside God’s will, but rather as a setback suffered as a soldier who labours for the coming kingdom.  Meanwhile I have friends local and worldwide who have expressed their prayers in my behalf in this matter.  So these are issues we wrestle with.  I value your prayer towards this matter.  On a practical note, I value your prayer and/or involvement:

  1. Immediate tuition funding that I may resume the programme.
  2. Long-term strategies for meeting the 4-year PhD expenses.
  3. Any new ministerial, church, organisational, or collaborative relations that may also help towards the short or long-term funding of this venture.

If you feel prompted to converse towards seeing this come to pass, feel free to write me.



Many of you, who are reading this letter, have many times prayed, and have generously helped in diverse ways over the past several years.  Many have helped in very big and sacrificial ways.  Please know that my wife Jee Fong and I, are indebted to you.  I live in deep debt to people worldwide.  So as I have said before, I say again: in return, the best I can presently do is this.  That from a posture of gratefulness before God and you who have helped us in any past way— to faithfully go forward as best as we discern God’s leading into the future and this coming year.

Throughout this letter, I have tried to share something of the passion, vision, and missionary commissioning that burns within my spirit.  I have also tried to share some planned endeavours, aspirations, and practical needs.  So again I write that I may enlist your prayer and involvement via however God prompts you— to help me do my part for the up-building of the Church, the coming Kingdom, and the greater glory of God.

May the Lord prosper you with renewed passion for God’s coming kingdom, good health, and overflowing abundance.

The peace of Christ be yours through the power of God’s Spirit,
