Pastor Daphne Yang
Cornerstone Community Church
Pastor Daphne Yang is the deputy senior pastor of Cornerstone Community Church and co-founded the church with her husband, Rev. Yang Tuck Yoong, the senior pastor. She is also the president of Cornerstone Community Services, Singapore, a family service centre that reaches out to the community at large and provides assistance to the less privileged in society. She is the pastoral overseer in the church and works with a team of dedicated pastors and full-time staff to fulfil God’s agenda for His Kingdom.
The Bible College of Wales was founded and established in 1924 by the great intercessor, Mr. Rees Howells. In its earlier days, it was not only a hub of incessant spiritual activity that altered the course of world history; it also produced a company of powerful servants of God who traversed the nations with the gospel. There were many famous preachers that came forth from the hallowed grounds of the school, men like evangelist Reinhard Bonnke and Bryn Jones, but equally as effective men and women who gave their lives preaching the gospel of the kingdom.
Note from the Directors
In an early college pamphlet, it was written that the great object of the college is to prove that the work of God can be carried on by trust in God and that faith and prayer are efficient agents. The pamphlet goes on to say that the desire of the founder was to give the very best tuition to young men and women and also to encourage them to enter the school of faith. That all the students who graduate from the college will be able not only to expound the Word of God but to give practical demonstrations of it. This need of trained ministers was a burden to the founder and he prayed for a strong interdenominational college in Wales that would give thorough theological training, yet with practical expressions of faith.
In keeping with the tradition of the founder of this Bible College, we pray again that out of these gates, God will again raise a mighty army of preachers who will proclaim the good news of the Kingdom and shake the nations. As directors of the estate, we are convinced that the Bible College of Wales will once again be an epicentre of great spiritual activity and blessing to all the churches in Wales, the United Kingdom, and internationally. The question to answer, of course, is who should attend this college? Good question.
This college is designed for men and women, young and old, who seek to know the Lord more intimately, those who desire to enter into ministry either on a full-time or part-time basis, those who have a call for the nations as missionaries, and those who would like to be refreshed in the Lord. Each semester will last 12 weeks, and each student will receive the highest standards of instruction, training, and ministry.
