"I have known Neal and Ruth Patterson for nearly 30 years and find both of them to be very gifted teachers. Neal and Ruth are regular guest faculty at Tung Ling Seminary Malaysia and teach at our School of Ministry as well as our Degree Programs. They have also taught at our Tung Ling branches in Ipoh, Chennai and Manila. During their trips to Malaysia, Neal and Ruth has been ministering at Full Gospel Tabernacle churches in Malaysia since 1981. The couple have been a real blessing to us in Malaysia".
Neal and Ruth Patterson have been preaching and teaching in Full Gospel Tabernacle group of churches in Malaysia and overseas for the last thirty years. We have found them to be great lovers and teachers of the Word. Always imparting truth with love, humility and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, they edify and challenge the body of Christ to an eternal perspective of loving and serving our Lord.
Full Gospel Tabernacle (www.fgt2u.org) has been greatly impacted and blessed by their ministry.

Dr. Neal Patterson has been one of the significant mentors in my life, who helped shape my theological grid, ministry values and he is also one of those leaders who endorsed and affirmed me, in my gifting and calling, with a prophetic insight! I had the privilege of sitting under Dr. Neal in 1988 for three months, when he was the Dean of the Tung Ling Bible College, Singapore. I also attended a Leadership Conference he conducted for the Pastors/Christian Leaders in Singapore. Those 3 months were special 3 months in my life. Subsequently, in the years 1992 & 1993, when I wanted to pursue my Theological Education, my first choice was Singapore and Tung Ling Bible College, not so much because of the country or the College itself, but, because Dr. Neal was the Principal of the College and the Dean of the 2 Year Program. And I knew that he was going to teach the bulk of those subjects. The primary motivation to come to Singapore Tung Ling Bible College, was to sit under Dr. Neal. This I did, as the Lord opened the doors of opportunity and those two years were precious years in my ministry development phase. Besides me, my wife Jessie, was also trained by Dr. Neal and Sister Ruth. We are grateful to the Lord for this couple’s input into our life and now the privilege and honour continues .... Dr. Neal regularly (and Sister Ruth occasionally) travels to India to minister to our Staff and in our Bible College. We still continue to enjoy his rich teachings from the Word of God. The genius of his teaching is his ability to highlight the Scriptural Principles for Life and Ministry, with a strong emphasis on Christian Character. I highly recommend him for Teaching and Preaching, to any churches, Bible Colleges and Leaders’ Conferences!

I was first introduced to Dr. Neal Patterson more than 20 years ago. over the years, whenever Dr. Neal visited Singapoe, he was a speaker at our Cauldicott Group, a group under the ,smalll group ministry, of Wesley Methodist Church. When we went into full time ministry in 1998 and started Covenant Vision Center in Singapore, Dr. Neal continued to be a regular feature at our Spiritual Group Seminars, a weekly teaching and ministry meeting held on Friday nights.
We were then introduced to Sister Ruth and over the years they have become firm and good friends as well as spiritual parents and mentors for both my wife and I. We share fond memories of quality time spent together as they poured their lives into our lives in ministry
In 2005, Dr. Neal was also one of the plenary speakers at our major conference organised by CVC in partnership with some 20 local churches. together with Dr, Kevin Connor (Australia), Bishop Dr. Samuel Doctorian (Lebanon) and Rev. Miguel Escobar (Chile), they brought revelational teaching and spirit led ministry to some 900 delegates who attended the event. since then Dr. Neal has conducted various enlightening teaching on the Kingdom of God and Sis. Ruth has indeed enriched our people with teaching on Bible Customs.
Dr. Neal has also become an anual speaker in our CVC church pulpit ministry. Dr. Neal and Sis. Ruth were both speakers at CVCC's second family camp in 2010. they have also conducted various seminars as well as leadership training for our church. With their word based, Spirit led and faith filled teaching they have both contributed much to the growth of CVCC as a local church.
