On September 6, twenty-five men and women graduated from our School of Local Church Planting and School of Local Church Ministry.
Every graduating batch gives themselves a name to describe who they are and what they hope to achieve as they step into the mission field. This particular batch called themselves the “Vanguards.” According to Dennis Aquino, one of the graduates, “(A vanguard is) at the forefront of an action or movement, like troops moving at the head of an army.” With this name, these men and women will be paving the way for new things in our local churches, and in new citiesin our country.
The graduates expressed gratitude not only to the teachers who have imparted skills and knowledge through their experiences in the mission field. They also acknowledged their ministry partners, who were faithful in their support and prayers. Most of all, these men and women gave heartfelt thanks for the support and love from their families and close friends.
The five-month training was held in the Every Nation building, and the students learned various skills on preaching, leadership, excellence, and administrative strategies.
Within a few years, we’re expectant to reach more cities and provinces for Christ, and experience growth in our current locations!
