School of Leadership

Mr Philip Ong

From a CEO of an advertising agency group to the Founding Chairman of a non-profit organization, and now as the Dean of the School of Leadership at Tung Ling Bible School, Philip’s calling has always revolved around business, church ministry, and leadership. Philip had spent more than 30 years in the advertising business. He has always been passionate about using business as a mission for God’s kingdom. In 1995, Philip started an advertising company in Jakarta, leading the company into a merger with the world’s second-largest advertising group. At the same time, together with a group of believers, they started a local church - Jakarta International Christian Fellowship (JICF). By the time he stepped down as an Elder of the church in 2002, the church had grown from 60 to 600 people.

In response to God’s call, he returned back to Singapore and started a non-profit organization, Equipping Leaders for Asia (ELA) to challenge men to rise as Spiritual Leaders in their homes, workplaces, churches, and community. Having dealt with leaders and leadership pitfalls at different levels, Philip felt a compelling need to teach about character formation. He believes that for any leadership to make a significant lasting impact, it must flow out of a character of inner security and identity in God. Since 2007, he has taught Character Formation at Tung Ling Bible School. Philip literally grew up in the church and came to the saving knowledge of Christ at twelve. From an infant to the present, he had been worshipping and serving in different leadership capacities at Hinghwa Methodist Church in Singapore.
