Kong Hee (Chinese: 康希; pinyin: Kāng Xī; born 23 August 1964) is the founder and senior pastor of City Harvest Church in Singapore. Kong is a Christian in the Charismatic Movement, with a philosophy of ministry that emphasises the Great Commandment, Great Commission, and Cultural Mandate. He is married to pop music singer Sun Ho.
In 2015, Kong was found guilty in court of three charges of criminal breach of trust, and sentenced to eight years jail, beginning in 2016. This was the result of a 2012 arrest and a trial beginning in 2013 into the allegations that Kong and five other church leaders illegally used $24 million of church funds to fund the music career of Sun Ho (who was not charged), and then misused another $26 million in a cover-up. Kong was also found by the judge to be the "key man" behind the scandal who had guided his five accomplices.
