Serving Local Pastors
The Alliance of Pentecostal & Charismatic Churches of Singapore (APCCS) is a network of local churches, Christian organisations and pastors. We were formed in 2018 to support one another relationally in the journey of Christian ministry.
Our heart is to serve pastors and leaders in Singapore, which we do in three ways: representing their interests and advocating on their behalf, helping them access quality resources for ministry needs, and connecting them with other Christian leaders in an environment of authentic relationships.
APCCS is a member of the Pentecostal World Fellowship.
The Seeds of a Vision
In 2012, two pastors–Rev. Dominic Yeo, Senior Pastor of Trinity Christian Centre, and Rev. Yang Tuck Yoong, Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Community Church–broached the idea of a formal network of churches where pastors would be able to connect with one another, seek assistance and find true fellowship.
The conversation gained momentum until 2014, when both the Assemblies of God Singapore and the Festival of Praise Churches collaborated on a conference called “Fresh Fire”. At that conference, Keynote speaker Rev. Samuel Rodriguez released a prophetic word over the two pastors. Another incubation period of three years followed, as like-minded church leaders prayed and fine-tuned the alliance’s vision and direction.
Finally, on 19 April 2018, the Alliance of the Pentecostal & Charismatic Churches of Singapore (APCCS) was officially launched over a lunch fellowship at Mandarin Orchard Singapore, with pastors and leaders representing various churches and Christian organisations in attendance.
