Editor's Note: Charisma News does not agree with some of the points in this article, but thought it was noteworthy to see how the world views the Pentecostal church.
"God is here, God is here," croons Singapore church official Sun Ho as she struts across a neon-lit stage and thousands of people in the congregation pump their hands and sing along.
Kong Hee, the church's founding pastor and Sun Ho's husband, then takes the stage. In keeping with the electrifying mood, he invites his followers to speak "in tongues" and a pulsing murmur echoes through the auditorium of 8,000 people.
City Harvest's Crossover Project is at the centre of charges that Kong and five other officials financed his wife's singing career by funneling church funds of S$24 million into sham investments and then used S$26.6 million more to cover up the deals.
Kong and the others deny the charges. Kong's wife is not on trial and has resumed her executive duties at the church.

Singapore's Commissioner of Charities(COC) has given City Harvest Church Pastor Kong Hee and seven of his staff more time to submit official protests against a proposal to have them permanently removed from the ministry's board. The COC has also lifted its suspension of Kong's wife, Sun Ho, allowing her to resume her executive duties at the church. The news comes just two days before Kong heads to court to fight charges related to the mishandling of church funds.
In a statement shared with supporters on City Harvest Church's Facebook page and website Monday, Executive Pastor Aries Zulkarnain revealed, "This morning, Sun, wife of our senior pastor Kong Hee received a letter from the Commissioner of Charities.
The statement also revealed that Pastor Kong and seven other City Harvest staff members had been granted a two-month extension to submit representations to the Commissioner of Charities, as the original deadline was Monday, May 13, 2013.
After the deadline for written statements of support from the public was closed last month, the COC revealed Monday that it was giving the following individuals, also members of City Harvest Church, until July 13, 2013, to make their submissions challenging their removal from the ministry board:

Pastor Kong, 48, and the other seven members of City Harvest Church were initially requested to temporarily remove themselves from the ministry's board and employ after a two-year investigation led to allegations of mismanagement of funds meant for the megachurch, which functions as a charity. Kong's wife, Sun Ho, was not among those charged, although she was also suspended.
In a report of its findings, the Commissioner of Charities alleged that $18 million ($23 SGD) collected by City Harvest Church was used "with the purported intention of financing (Sun) Ho's secular music career to connect with people" and that board members were complicit in funneling church funds, meant for a new building project, for this purpose.
The case, made public last summer, has its first court date on Wednesday, May 15 and will reportedly run through May 23, with prosecutors expected to lay out their arguments first. Pastor Kong has said that he is confident he will be cleared of any wrongdoing.
Pastor Kong and his wife gained notoriety in Singapore after they founded City Harvest Church in 1989, an evangelical nondenominational congregation of 30,000.
