The idea for The Treasure Box was first birthed in Elvin and Esther's hearts in September 2017. Back then, that was all it was - an idea. But, as far as ideas went, it was pretty radical. It was the idea that Christian families in Singapore needed to return to the fundamentals; they needed to re-discover God in their personal lives and in their homes. It was the idea that God's Presence and His Word were incredible treasures that needed to be unearthed in every household. It was the idea that the Holy Spirit's transformative power was a treasure to be displayed in every life, both young and old. And finally, it was the idea that every family is precious and valuable to the Lord - that every family unit is a treasure in His eyes.
The idea became a burden. The burden became a heart-cry. The heart-cry got translated into plans. Plans materialized as action. And a whole series of actions (and a lot of prayers) later, the idea finally became a reality, and The Treasure Box was founded in August 2018.
The Treasure Box is founded on the belief that spiritually healthy and whole families are central to God’s plan to bring His Kingdom on earth, and that the key to growing such families is in discovering the treasures of God’s Word and Prayer together as a family.
We believe it’s time for broken-down family altars to be rebuilt, and for new ones to be built where there were none before. To that end, our mission is to inspire, train, and resource parents with all the tools they need to lead their family in seeking God together, so that we will see a generation of God-fearing families rise up who will impact their communities, their nations, and the nations of the world.
Our core beliefs are:
FAITH - Our faith in Christ Jesus is the cornerstone of all we do. He is at the Centre of our lives and our business, and we do not and cannot exist without Him.
FAMILY - God’s heart is for families, and He chooses to use families as a vehicle to bring transformation and blessing to communities and to nations.
FOUNDATION - We need to lay strong spiritual foundations before God can build on our lives; this is done by practicing and modelling the basic spiritual disciplines of Bible-reading, prayer, and holy living.
