In an older article, we recorded Kong Hee saying the following at a C3 Church Presence Conference where Hillsong leaders Darlene & Mark Zschech were present.
“It’s such a joy to be listening to J. John and Kelly and to see my good friend Darlene Zscheck and Mark. You know, Mark has really become a close brother because he is now a consultant of Ho Media Ministry you know, in our church. So Mark, we’re counting on you. You know, if we don’t dominate the world in the next ten years, it’s all your fault.” [Source]
So what was Kong Hee’s relationship with Hillsong? Did Kong Hee always like Darlene or Mark Zschech? Or did Kong Hee use them or Hillsong to further his wife’s music career? Does he still have a relationship with Hillsong or Darlene and Mark Zschech?
We say this because ‘CHC Confessions’ recently posted this comment,
This was originally from John Lim posted in the comments section. It is more visible to stay as a post.
Quote point#4 from the email:
“This is a personal question. There is a 40-year old Australian singer by the name of Darlene Zschech (residing in Sydney) whom Sun has known for many years. She is more a classical, inspirational-type singer like Josh Groban or Sarah Brightman, She is not Asian but has been quite competitive in her attitudes toward Sun in the past many years. Ever since she heard that Sun has crossovered into Hollywood and USA, Darlene has been rather intense in her demeanor toward Sun. There is a now a rumor circulating in the Singapore-Sydney grapevine that David Foster is collaborating with Darlene in a new album production for the US market. Question: any truth in that?”

What a hate-filled, unchristian rant which is totally unfounded and completely wrong. Darlene Zschech has not been at Hillsong for years and has nothing to do with Hillsong Music anymore (hasn’t for years). Your hatred for Hillsong has no bounds – you’ll even resort to lies and deception to bash Hillsong. Is rumor now enough? What does the Bible say about spreading rumors?? How totally holy of you – hypocrite. If you have any decency you’ll apologise – but I am sure you won’t. You’ll continue with your hate and call yourself a Christian.
“You’ll continue with your hate and call yourself a Christian.”
And you’ll no doubt continue your assiduous “tithing” in order to purchase your blessings, as would a pagan offer up a sacrifice to appease his “god” and earn their favour. If you had any discernment you would repent.
Anyway, look on the bright side – thanks to you and many like you, Brian Houston is living high on the hog. I bet he thinks of you every time he checks the time on that nice Breitling he wears – who knows, maybe he’s even got your name engraved on the back of it. But I bet you figure that since Brian works so awfully hard, he’s entitled to have his fair share of the punters’ money stick to his fingers, don’t you?
a Concerned Christ Follower said:
wow, really? tithing to purchase your blessings? Tithing is giving BACK 10% of what God ALREADY gave you. Any reasonable person knows it is for the maintenance of the church and the expansion of the kingdom. you think God needs your money? It is the church and people that need your financial support. not God. my friend I would suggest you go back to your bible.
“Any reasonable person knows [“tithing”] is for the maintenance of the church and the expansion of the kingdom.”
Is that right? So where, exactly, does Brian’s $300,000 salary come from then? How is it that Sun Ho was living in a Hollywood mansion that she rented for US$20,000 per month? Where did the money come from to pay Sun a $1,000,000 “hardship allowance”? Who do you think paid Kong Hee’s airfare bill, which totalled $700,000? How is it that Phil Pringle lives in a house that he purchased for $3,500,000? Exactly where did Steve Furtick get $1,700,000 to build his mansion?
Do you honestly consider that fattening the wallets of false prophets and underwriting their obscenely profligate lifestyles is “expanding the kingdom”? If you do, I would say that the only conclusion that can be drawn is that you are simply not right in the head (perhaps you go to hillsong “church”?)
“[…] I would suggest you go back to your bible.”
Ah, some irony to go with your idiocy – anyone who has read their Bible would know that tithing was a part of the Old Testament law, by which *no* believer in Christ is bound. However, if you are so undiscerning as to prefer the old wine to the new, please feel free to place yourself in bondage to that law – and under the curse that will consequently follow from your inability to satisfy all the requirements of it. But don’t, in your pathetic blindness, presume to lecture others regarding matters spiritual about which you haven’t the faintest clue – it only serves to illustrate the depths of your wilful ignorance.
We take it you are talking about ‘Pastor’ Kong Hee’s comment to Justin Herz being a “hate-filled, unchristian rant”?
It was Kong Hee that made this stateent not us: “She is not Asian but has been quite competitive in her attitudes toward Sun in the past many years”.
“Anyway, look on the bright side – thanks to you and many like you, Brian Houston is living high on the hog.”
whether your right or not, he will answer to the Lord one day…. and so will you………..
Should we take it that you are giving a minimum of 10% of your gross income to Brian Houston?
pretty pathetic answer Paul – is your real name Ostrich?
Before I mention something already discussed in another article/comment section- has there been dialogue about where other finances outside church work can come from for Pastors? Seems like a lot of people are missing that side of it.
