Rev Ashley Thomas has been in the ministry for more than twenty years. After finishing his Bible theological studies in the United States. Ashley moved to Australia in 1993. For more than four years Ashley was a part of the Assemblies of God World Missions. In 1997 Ashley and his family moved to Brisbane Australia, where he spent the next 15 years in pastoral ministry.

Towards the end of 15 years of pastoral work and ministry, God once again began to stir within Ashley’s heart to streamline into Missions and Evangelism as an itinerant preacher which has been evidenced by many doors opening miraculously both locally and internationally.

On account of this new mandate, Ashley now travels extensively to South East Asia and the Pacific, where he also facilitates discipleship training workshops, small groups, evangelistic campaigns, leadership development, Bible teaching and Church Planting.

Ashley has used an itinerant platform to serve the Lord in the broader mission and evangelistic context, preaching the gospel and training future leaders of this generation. He is also a gifted keyboardist/pianist and an experienced worship leader.

Ashley is married to wife Usha with two adult children Petra and Selah.

 

 

Prosperity For God's People


Speaker: Rev Bob Lum
6 Oct, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
7 Oct, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
 

Teachings about prosperity for the Christians have become very popular in the last 2 decades.  Preachers make statements like "God wants you to prosper in your business - to make lots of money.", "He wants you to happy all the time." "It's time to claim your inheritance and be rich." 

 

Is it true that God wants us to be materially prosperous? Has He promised us literal "milk and honey" possessions?  Let's Talk About Prosperity this weekend and find out for yourself what the Bible meant when verses like Psalm 1:3 promises, "Whatever he does prospers." 

 

Pastor Bob is the senior pastor of Eternal Life Assembly. He has attended the same church since he became a Christian in 1967.  Being friendly and down-to-earth, his messages are practical. He is married to Dorothy and has 3 daughters, 1 son-in-law and 2 grandchildren.

 

 

The Thorny Problem Of Pain


Speaker: Rev Alvin Ngo
13 Oct, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
14 Oct, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
 

"If God loves me the way you claim, why am I suffering?"  The Psalmist confesses, "For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked." Psalm 73:3

 

The pain of the righteous contrasts sharply with the prosperity of the wicked.  The problem of pain has plagued believers for years. Books have been written to explain the suffering of godly people.  We will talk about PAIN and confront it with openness and honesty.  What does God say about pain in a believer's life? If there a way out of our pain?  Let Pastor Alvin clear your mind as he shares from the Bible and his personal experiences. 

 

Pastor Alvin is the deputy senior pastor in Eternal Life Assembly. He has many years of experience in Christian ministry. He is married to Wai Leng and has 2 sons, 1 daughter and 1 daughter-in-law.

 

 

Finding God In A Distracted World


Speaker: Rev Daphne Lau
20 Oct, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
21 Oct, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
 

We live in a busy, distracted world.  People are "glued" to their mobile phones in the train, on the street and even during meetings/dinners. There's so much to catch up, so many things to do ... it's tiring but FUN!  Family, holidays, social invites, exercise classes, drama series, etc - are clamoring for our time and attention.

 

No wonder Christians are becoming less interested in God. Time with God is limited to church services (they often fall asleep in church!). Prayer is simply "Thank You, God, for the food." It's time to get back to a passionate personal experience with God!  So, let's talk about WORSHIP that's more than singing a song or listening to a sermon. Real, dynamic worship of our Living & Loving God.

 

Pastor Daphne Lau serves as the Worship Pastor as well as in the leadership of Missions in Eternal Life Assembly.  Her life overflows with genuine love and passion for God.  She is gifted in music and singing and will launch her 2nd album later in the year. Her first album, A New Day, has blessed many people in different countries. 

 

Growing Old But Strong


Speaker: Rev Bob Lum
27 Oct, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
28 Oct, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
 

"There is nothing new under the sun." This statement taken from Ecclesiastes is used to describe the monotony of life.  As one grows older, life seems to get boring - the "same old, same old". 

 

It is a temptation for Christians to carry this attitude into their life with God. They have seen it all; they have learnt it all; they have done it all. Passion wanes and Christianity becomes a routine. Does it have to be this way?  Pastor Bob who has been a Christian in the same church for over 50 years, will share from the Bible and his personal experience on how we can keep being spiritually strong as we grow old. You will enjoy this session as we talk about Worship.

 

Pastor Bob is the senior pastor of Eternal Life Assembly. He has attended the same church since he became a Christian in 1967.  Being friendly and down-to-earth, his messages are practical. He is married to Dorothy and has 3 daughters, 1 son-in-law and 2 grandchildren.

Is Sex Outside Of Marriage Wrong?


Speaker: Rev Anthony Chua
10 Nov, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
11 Nov, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
 

"Is Sex Outside Marriage Wrong?"

 

Is that really the topic in the church's weekend services?  Can we talk about sex in church?

 

In our series, Let's talk about...", we are going to know God's heart about sex.  We seldom hear this topic spoken in the church although it is much needed. In a world with rapidly-changing culture, what we know is wrong has become alright. Does the Bible address the topic of sex directly? Come with us as Pastor Anthony unpacks God's word about marriage and sex in a highly sexualised society.

 

Pastor Anthony is the pastor in charge of the youth and young adults in Eternal Life Assembly. He has a touching transformation experience when Christ changed his life.  He is married to Serina and has 1 son.

 

 

Can We Just Be Friends?


Speaker: Rev Alvin Ngo
17 Nov, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
18 Nov, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
 

"Friends with benefits" is a modern day term used to describe friends who think that it's ok to have occasional casual sex without the commitment of marriage. We read about affairs in the office. It seems that a relationship with the opposite sex is not possible without developing into romance or sex. 

 

Let's talk about Relationships and find out how we can establish healthy friendship with the opposite sex.  Learn what the Bible teaches and get practical tips on how to keep our friendships pure and enriching. 

 

Pastor Alvin is the deputy senior pastor in Eternal Life Assembly. He has many years of experience in Christian ministry. He is married to Wai Leng and has 2 sons, 1 daughter and 1 daughter-in-law.

 

 

Real Conversations


Speaker: Rev Bob Lum
24 Nov, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
25 Nov, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
 

We have questions that we want to ask. We have issues that we wish we could discuss with someone. We have an experience that we want to share with others. BUT we don't know who to ask or how to bring up the issue. We are afraid that people may not want to hear what we have to say or they may reject us after knowing our story. 

 

In the authentic loving community we call "Church", we should be able to have real conversations. Sometimes it is difficult to broach the subject. In this final session of the "Let's Talk About ...." series, let us move closer to the Christian model of fellowship and friendship. 

 

Pastor Bob is the senior pastor of Eternal Life Assembly. He has attended the same church since he became a Christian in 1967.  Being friendly and down-to-earth, his messages are practical. He is married to Dorothy and has 3 daughters, 1 son-in-law and 2 grandchildren.
