The fifth batch of campus ministers graduated from our Every Nation School of Ministry last April 12, 2011.
This batch, made up of nineteen men and women, is definitely a mixture of many firsts. Eleven of the graduates are from provincial churches and many of which will pioneer campus ministries in their areas. Two graduates are from other Christian churches. This batch is also considered as the youngest the school has ever had, having a nineteen year-old as the youngest in the class and a twenty-four year-old as the eldest.
According to Migz Tadique, one of the graduates who will serve in Victory Cabanatuan, he thought it was just about academics, but “We learned a lot of things (like perseverance), how to (respond) to tasks, how to relate with one another, (and) how to work together as a group.”
Beaming with great potential and with all lessons that they acquired in that three fruitful months of studying in School of Campus Ministry, these upcoming campus missionaries are now more than ready to go back to their respective mission fields to be used by God in different campuses to reach out to the next generation and be radical for Jesus.
Fiona Alvero is the Communications and Special Events Coordinator of Every Nation Campus. She’s also a Victory group leader in Victory Quezon City reaching out to the campus of Miriam College.
