Times of Refreshing

Introduction
Times Of Refreshing is a radio programme in English which was aired on FM102.3 from 3 October 2011 to 28 September 2012, from 8 – 8.30 p.m. , Mondays to Fridays.

Itinerant preacher Kenneth Wong promises to engage with insightful Bible teachings as he brings God’s relevant message of faith, love, hope and peace for today’s chaotic and turbulent world. The talks on various themes will be related to the Christian faith and life.

Said Kenneth: “The need is especially great where these are neglected or deficient in many busy and overcrowded lives. The appeal is to come aside nightly to be fed, inspired, instructed, and refreshed through the Word of God. It is accessible to anyone from any place, race or religious background wherever they are through various portable devices with FM reception.”

As Times of Refreshing was aired on a weekday evening prime time slot, it was hoped that a faithful following of listeners will tune in regularly by building it into their daily routines, whether commuting by public transport, driving, dining, dish-washing, or even shift-working. The content will contain local appeal translating into better identification with listeners in Singapore and the region compared to imported western programmes.

The programme is an initiative driven by Bethesda Hall in partnership with Trans World Radio (TWR) Asia.

KENNETH WONG – CALLED AND COMMITTED SERVANT OF GOD
His ministry motto is: “all things to all men by all means to save some” based on 1 Corinthians 9:22.

Kenneth Wong is actively engaged in an effective ministry of bible teaching and preaching. A regular speaker in many churches, conferences and camps, his ministry has wide appeal to both young and old. His messages are insightful and refreshing, and his speaking style marked by clarity and spontaneity.

Converted at the age of 20 as a university student in the United Kingdom, he returned to fulfill his national service as an officer. After completing his scholarship bond, he continued to work in higher education in various lecturing and senior management appointments. Since 2005, he has been devoting his full time to pursue his calling in the ministry of God’s word by faith.

Kenneth is the author of Sojourner’s Scrapbook, an inspiring series of thought-provoking devotional readings, published in 2010 and now in its second printing. Home church is Bethesda Hall (Ang Mo Kio) where he has been in fellowship since 1986.
