East Asia Influence Expo
Another first for East Asia
Earlier this month in November, we participated in the East Asia Influence Expo. Dr Teresa Moon, the founder of ICC and Mrs Eunice Au, the Director of ICC's Online Academy, came to East Asia to build up leaders and get the public acquainted with the various aspects of ICC. For the first time, there were no instructors from the US. Instead, there were a group of nine more experienced Student Leaders representing most of the chapters in East Asia, who were designated as Expo Influencers. Besides being responsible for carrying out activities and serving as role models, they were also directly mentored by Dr Moon, Mrs Au and our Area Coordinator, Mrs Shepherd. Read about John's experience as an Expo Influencer here!

As part of his duties as an ASLC member, he will be helping to lead the East Asia YSG calls along with Jack C., a National Student Leader Council (NSLC) member who used to be leading the East Asia YSG Calls.
We're back from iCon
The Return of the East Asia iCon Team
After 3 weeks of fun, excitement and learning, the 12-man (and mom) strong team have returned. We all did very well, especially Noel L. and John H. from Chapter C.I.A. who managed to advance into the semi-finals of debate at the International Tournament. John T. from Chapter IMPACT forCE did well and managed to get 14th place in Radio Broadcasting out of more than 60 competitors.

Inagural Inter-Chapter Games
Aunty Connie and Aunty Sau Wan from C.I.A. and Lions for the Lord, organised our very first Inter-Chapter Games. Running-Man style! Representatives from all the Chapters in Singapore came to participate. We missed you Words A.L.I.V.E.! Everyone had fun running around Kallang Wave Mall (due to miscommunication ;D) trying to complete missions and trying to chase the other team down. Although we didn't manage to complete all the missions and the hunters didn't manage to catch everyone, we all had a good time bonding with each other!
East Asia CFC 2016
Breaking boundaries, creating history
This year's conference with the theme "Share Experience" was our biggest conference so far. ICC history was also created when Eliza Tan (Words A.L.I.V.E.) and John Teoh (IMPACT forCE) were the first ones from the East Asia region to be inducted into the Guild. At this year's tournament, it was also the first time the YSG Guild award was handed out. Congratulations to all speakers, especially those who got invitations to the International Convention (iCON)!!!
IMPACT forCE moves house
For the past chapter year, our meetings have been held at Evangel Bible-Presbyterian Church We are very grateful to them for allowing us to use their facilities for the past few months. Recently, because of recent developments, we are unable to use their premises any longer. We will be shifting to another church in the area for chapter meetings. We would like to thank Evangel Bible-Presbyterian again for hosting us and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
Our new blog writer

You might have noticed his name at the bottom of our recent blog posts.

We would like to thank him for taking time to help out in this area!

Sharing the Christmas Story through Narrations, Songs and Games
We had our second Chapter Presentation cum Christmas celebration on 19th December together with some invited guests.

After dinner, the Nativity story was told in the form of a treasure hunt and the singing of some carols.
Inaugural meeting of 2015-2016
New year, new members, new memories
On 19th June IMPACT forCE had its first formal meeting for the new chapter year. We were encouraged by Chapter Sponsor Apple's theme verse for the year, Luke 18:27: "Jesus replied, 'What is impossible with man is possible with God.'"
Our chapter website also has a new feature- a chapter blog, in which various chapter members will write about our bi-monthly meetings and share what they learnt from that week's meeting.
Last Chapter Meeting of the Chapter year
Welcoming new people to our chapter
We just had our last Chapter Meeting of the Chapter year on 20 April. All the chapter members gave speeches about what they have learnt in the past Chapter year and what they hope to achieve in the next. We are currently looking for more families to join the chapter so if you are interested, do contact us.
2nd ICC Conference in Singapore
On March 19 and 20, ICC held their second conference at RiverLife Church. It was a booming success with more than 200 adults and children attending the conference. Many participants came away with new or increased understanding of how to be a good speaker and how to be a good leader.
Official Website Launched
This very website you are looking at!
At our chapter dinner, we took the opportunity to ask our former chapter sponsor Julianne to launch the very website that you are looking at right now! Our website will be updated every time something new happens in our chapter so stay tuned!
First Chapter Dinner

On February 15, we went out for a chapter dinner. After dinner, our former Chapter Sponsor, Julianne, presented all the chapter members with our new chapter T-shirts.
First Chapter Presentation
A great opportunity to share about ICC and the upcoming IMPACT Conference!
On February 7 2015, we visited the Shalom Homeschooling Group at their weekly Bible study at Bukit Batok Park. We took the opportunity to share about the different speeches that we have learnt: Expository, Dramatic, Extemporaneous and Persuasive. It was also a great time to share about ICC and the upcoming IMPACT Conference right here in Singapore.
We have a new Chapter leader!
Co-sponsor Apple Wong takes over the reins from current sponsor Julianne Miller, who has led the chapter through an eventful 6 months. Under Julianne, we have seen the development of the chapter name and logo. Julianne was the first leader of the Chapter, forming it together with Apple last year in May 2014. We welcome Apple as our new chapter sponsor and wish Julianne all the best in her future undertakings and endeavours!
Revealed-Our chapter logo
Our official logo!
After many rounds of discussion, and sifting through at least 15 different designs drawn up by various chapter members, we eventually decided on this--our chapter name with a sword at the back.
Our new name
Finally, our chapter has an official name
Out of many names suggested by out chapter members, we eventually decided on the name IMPACT forCE. Our name is an acronym which stands for: Impacting Many Parents, Adults, Children and Teens for Christ Everywhere. That is exactly what we hope to do--to impact people from all walks of life who are around us in our community. To celebrate the official naming of our chapter, we had a special ice-cream party! (If you look closely at the picture you can see that some of us are holding ice-cream in cups!)

The U.S. Team, various Leaders in the East Asia region and Student Instructors
The International Convention (iCON) is coming soon! A team of 12 people from East Asia-4 coaches and 8 students, will be representing East Asia at the International Tournament and at iCON. Here's a message from the team:
Airfares to the U.S. aren't cheap and neither are the registration fees. Despite this, we still are making the trip as we have seen how we have grown personally in the Lord, in our character and in our communication skills. We have also seen how we can impact the younger speakers in our chapters. We hope that you will be willing to invest in us and pray for us.
We would appreciate any amount that you are willing to give.
If you would like to donate, please connect with our team leader, Apple Teoh. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 91124291
Thank you so much for your generous support!
