Kong Hee (Chinese: 康希; pinyin: Kāng Xī; born 23 August 1964) is a pastor of City Harvest Church.
Following 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 while misusing another $26 million in a cover-up, Kong was found guilty in 2015 as the "key man" behind the scandal who had guided his five accomplices by the Singapore court of three charges of criminal breach of trust. He is presenting touring South East Asia while pending his sentence of eight years jail from 2016.
Kong may also be notable as the Christian Charismatic Movement founder and senior pastor of City Harvest Church in Singapore, a philosophy of ministry that emphasises the Great Commandment, the Great Commission and the Cultural Mandate.
