Altar call is a powerful time. In April 2012, I responded to Pastor Stovall Weems' altar call while he was preaching across all the campuses of Hillsong Church in Australia that the dry bones would live (in reference to Ezekiel 37:1-10).The encouragement of a resurrected army was perfect for a small remnant in captivity that one day, they would be protected to rebuild from scratch their home: the formidable city taken by the undefeated King David and a temple funded by the taxes of eleven tribes during their prime.I had no desire to speak publicly for many years. "Adjustable Ministry Preview" came to me when I revised my notes in homiletic and preaching.
It is a platform team tool for unknown speakers like myself. I had a go and I got some encouraging feedbacks from local pastors of a few churches in Sydney West during July/August 2012 over the phone. This is the improved version of my website. This website was also presented to pastors of great churches across the world in Christmas 2012. I believe this website will be useful to you.
When we obey God, we know that many other God’s servants had done it before and we also would see many other God’s people will do what we have done. In our church, all the lyrics of the songs are written by our church’s song writers had been screened by our church’s teaching pastor. Obviously, all the speeches of our nation’s political leaders are written and proof read and worked on by the speech writers and their advisers. Most great books are written by great authors and are edited and proof read by his or her secretaries. Adjustable ministry preview has blessed me, my ministry oversights, our congregation, and many of those being trained in public speaking in our circle.
God is faithful. Isaiah 55:11 tells us that God speaks and what He desires will accomplish. I would like to take the opportunity to suggest you that when you use the information below, you may consider ways, time and resources to answer the questions that people will ask you face to face as a result of your ministry during your preparation. The result of using adjustable ministry preview has gone way beyond my expectation.
God bless you, your team and your church. Thank God for the difference your church made in your community over the years.
Thank you so much for reading this web site.

My Public Speaking Experience
From November 1987 to December 1988, I spoke regularly to the youth of my church. Pastor Bill Wells was the Senior Pastor then of Woy Woy Assembly of God where I served and he was succeeded by Pastor Kevin Glohe. The first time I spoke a full message in a morning service was in January, 1989 prior to Woy Woy AOG merged with Peninsula Christian Life Centre.
From January 1989 to December 1992, I spoke regularly during semester to the students of University of Technology, Sydney attending Students For Christ meeting. Pastor Frank Houston was the Senior Pastor of Christian Life Centre, Sydney where this ministry was based. By invitation, I spoke at other Students For Christ meetings at Cumberland College - Lidcombe; Macquarie University; and University of Western Sydney, MacArthur.
Having completed “Every Believer Evangelism” Course in 1988, I led hundreds of people to Christ one on one as well as in meetings. On one occasion in December 1990, during my first short term mission trip with Students For Christ Missions to Hong Kong, the hosting church was Revival Christian Church, pastored by Pastor Dennis Balcombe and the field missionary from Australia whom we worked with the late Pastor Allan Boddy. They organized us to do a morning assembly at the Methodist College sponsored by the Youth For Christ Hong Kong. I had the privilege to lead 141 students to receive Christ as Saviour from an assembly of 800 students. I also spoke with Revival Christian Church Youth Service on that trip. I also had the opportunity to speak at a rehab centre of St. Stephen Society (now Hang Fook Vineyard Church) led by Jackie Pullinger. I also had the opportunity to preach in prisons in Macau.In 1991, I had the opportunity to speak at Central Coast Christian Life Centre led by Pastors Kevin and Marilyn Brett then. I also spoke at Mount Annan Christian Life Centre led by Pastors Adrian and Kathy Gray then. I also spoke at the youth service of Mount Annan Christian Life Centre in 1992.
From 1993 to 1995, I had the opportunity to speak at University of New South Wales Students For Christ meeting and event, Students For Christ NSW/ACT state conference, Macquarie Lighthouse Church and Christian Life Centre Sydney Chinese Service.
In 1993, I had the privilege to lead another short term missions trip to Hong Kong with Students For Christ Missions. The hosting organization was Asian Outreach Hong Kong. I spoke in 3 high school assemblies, an Asian Outreach church and a Full Gospel Church. I led some 179 people to Christ in those meetings. I thanked God for the great teams that I worked with on missions trip.
In 1995, my wife and I were selected by Pastor Frank Houston and the eldership of Christian Life Centre Sydney to pioneer Christian Life Centre Hong Kong from 1996 to 2001. I spoke weekly in our church service from 1996 to 1998.
In 1998, I had the opportunities to speak at Church on the Rock pastored by Pastors Allan and Janice Boddy. I had the opportunity to speak at Calvary Church of Hong Kong pastored by Pastor John McGovern. This is a Praise Chapel USA church. I also spoke at Christian Life Centre Sydney Chinese Service at Chatswood and Students For Christ NSW staff meeting. From 1998 and 2001, we worked with Calvary Church to pioneer a Cantonese speaking service to reach Chinese people. I spoke weekly from 1999 to 2001 in Calvary Chinese Service.
In 2001, I had the opportunity to speak in Eagleby Assembly of God where my brother and sister in law, David and Pirjo Lam were on staff.
Since then, I had spoken at Hillsong Church Chatswood Chinese Service foundation class, received the offering and led communion on a number of occasions in that service. 2001-11
I have been involved regularly in small group leading at church for the past 29 years. I have been a Probationary Ministerial Certificate holder with Australian Christian Churches/Assemblies of God NSW from 1997 to 2018. All of the above were completed voluntarily.

As a qualified person who holds a current police check in New South Wales, a current Working with Children Check Number in New South Wales (volunteer status) and a current First Aid Certificate, I may serve you using the below messages by you editing them. I prayed that these sample messages will bless, encourage and help you, your teams and your church in Jesus' mighty name.In the term of biblical message content, I found the easiest book of the New Testament to preach from is the book of Galatians.
