PRAY for Abundant harvest in the Philippines & globally – pass these info to prayer movements, prayer groups & intercessors.
PARTICIPATE by making a goal that you & your church will be involved. We plan to get the whole christian community to be engaged – churches, diaspora, next generation (youth/campuses), christian business community, christian NGOs, Bible schools, colleges & seminaries, christians in media/arts, ministerial fellowships, prayer networks & every believer.
PARTNER with others (individuals, churches, ministries & missions/christian organizations) and adopt an unchurched barangay and intentionally plant a church there.
Let’s be STRATEGIC in our church planting, please seriously consider ADOPTING an UNCHURCHED barangay where the UNREACHED are and plant a church among them.
Together, let’s make the GREAT COMMISSION a GREAT COMPLETION in the PHILIPPINES & Beyond.
Rev. 7:9-10 “After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
