November Mission Emphasis
Masinloc Christian Academy
with the First Independent Baptist Church of Masinloc
In 2005, the First Independent Baptist Church of Masinloc, Philippines started the Masinloc Christian Academy, as part of their mission to reach their community with the Gospel. They began with 18 students in their first year, and have now grown to 150 students with a staff of 15 teachers and faculty members, and are currently offering Christian education to preschool and grade school level children. FIBC offers a scholarship program for their church members. They hold chapel hour services for the students and teachers, and operate under the ministry of FIBC. This building offers a venue for church activities and Bible conferences and is an important part of the church’s outreach ministry for bringing boys and girls to Christ.
When FIBC first launched the school in 2005, Pendleton Street Baptist Church entered into a long term partnership with them, including sending a team to help with initial construction on the school building. In 2006, with the PSBC team, the school’s foundations were laid.
By 2011, the second story of the school had been completed. Now the goal is to complete construction of the third story. For our November “Connect in Missions” at PSBC, we will collect a special offering to assist with the purchase of materials to complete construction on the school building.
As a church family, we will also commit to pray for the following:
- Pastor Melo and Ruth Lumibao of FIBC Masinloc
- Students and families to hear and respond to the Gospel
- Teachers and Administrators
- Provision for the completion of the school building
