Couples Conference and Retreat with Dr. & Mrs. Rod Pence & Ptr. Clem Guillermo

Dec. 8-10, 2008

A Thre-Day Conference and Retreat for Couples in Ministry

In the afternoon of December 8, couples (pastors, Christian workers and their wives) started to converge in Bukal ng Tipan, a very lovely retreat house outside of Metro Manila. With its scenic view and nice surrounding, the place even looked lovelier in the evenings as it is overlooking the whole of Metro Manila. The dazzling of lights from afar seems to create a romantic atmosphere. And to top it all, each couple was assigned to a room. A couple who was married in 1963 and have been involved in the ministry for 45 years said “With gratefulness to God for the privilege to spend together in one room!!! Greatly appreciated!!!” A newly-married couple said “It has been a good conference and experience for relaxation, bonding, strengthening and learning for both of us.”



A total of 52 couples coming from as far as Pampanga and Batangas, came. Not only they represented different denominations, but it was also a mixture of young and old couples. But all of them have the same desire – to take part in this special retreat for couples sponsored by ACTION/CGM, as well as enjoy a brief respite from the ministry where each one is involved.

A One-day Conference of a thrilling journey into the world of the Old Testament tabernacle, its priests, sacrifices and feasts.

This One-day conference is unique in two ways – first, it is the first time the conference speaker led the delegates embarked on a wonderful journey of discovery in the Bible especially during the Old Testament times. Such questions as –

  • If God is love then why is there evil in the world?
  • Why would God create the Devil?
  • If no one was ever made right with God by sacrificing animals then why did God command man to do it?
  • What is the law all about?
  • What was the priesthood God established and does it exist today?

And other related questions were answered as the speaker explained the Old Testament animal sacrifices, the blood, the priests, the laws and the covenants.

Two-Day Conference with Ptr. David Stevenson and Dr. John Richard

On Aug 19 and 20, CGM/ACTION conducted a pastor/worker conference exclusively for a single church denomination. Aug. 19 was scheduled for the Christian Brethren pastors, workers and lay leaders, while Aug. 20 was designated to the Baptist denomination.

About 33 delegates of the Christian Brethren arrived to attend the conference. Some of them came from as far as Tanay, Rizal, Bulacan and Pampanga.

The venue was at the New Tribes Mission conference hall, a very spacious place, well lit, cool air conditioners and very clean restrooms. Since there was enough space, tables were set up for the delegates to write their notes. Also, the kitchen is adjacent to the conference hall so there is no need to be relocating to another place, thereby saving time.

One-Day Conference with Ptr. Tom Crouse and Ptr. Herman Moldez

“Nainitan ako physically and spiritually! (I was hot physically and spiritually).” “Lack of ventilations. . .” “Please find a bigger venue next time to accommodate more attendees.” These were some of the comments gathered after the recent conference sponsored by CGM/ACTION. The complaints were valid. The conference hall which could only accommodate 150 people was jam-packed with 251 people that day! The reason for this according to the head of the conference was that many have registered at the last minute. Also one of the pre-registration sites accepted beyond the quota assigned to them. Some people could be seen standing at the back because seats could no longer be taken inside. Even spaces near the stage were occupied and at one time, I saw Mr. Nichols going out just to give his seat to one of the delegates. The air-conditioners were running full blast, but in the afternoon the room got so hot that cardboard fans were distributed.

Men and Women in Ministry


“Living in the world is like a boxing match. A boxer cannot be expected to win when he gets to his corner after being beaten by his opponent, gets beaten by his handlers!” It may be a funny illustration, but this example was used by Dr. Wil and Jackie Chevalier to drive home a point in one of their sessions in a seminar they conducted for men and women in the ministry. Sponsored by CGM/ACTION, the one day conference was attended by 154 pastors, lay leaders and Christian workers. The main speakers were Dr. Wil and Jackie Chevalier.


Dr. Wil and Jackie, a husband-wife team, had been full-time missionaries in the Philippines for 12 years under Guideline for Family Living (with Harold Sala). Their primary work was in the area of counseling, especially for the married couples. Jackie was also involved as a beauty consultant with the World of Women, a television program for women, and was also a counselor in its center. For more than 24 years they had been conducting conference and training in the areas of conflict management, communication and marriage/family issues around the world. They are also co-founder of Life Branch Institute International, and member of the American Association of Christian Counselors and International Press Association.
