Integrity in Ministry - Part 2 PDF  | Print |

Date: March 23, 2009

Place: New Tribes Missionary Training Center

Conference Speaker: Rev. Tom Crouse

Devotional Speaker: Rev. Mike Lacanilao

No. of Delegates: 149


The conference started at around 8:15 in the morning with an opening prayer led by Pastor Lito de Guzman, Church Assistance Program Officer. The program started 15 minutes advance since most of the delegates came earlier than usual and the earliest delegates came all the way from the province of Quezon. Pastor Mike Lacanilao delivered the devotional message based on the book of Psalms which part of the message shared his testimony which is very fitted in the theme “Integrity in Ministry”.

Bro. Adam Hussey of ACTION International Ministries introduced the main speaker Pastor Tom Crouse where he divided his topic into four sessions: First, Integrity with our Doctrine (1 Timothy1:3-7); Second, Integrity with the order of Our Churches (1Timothy 2:8-15); Third, Integrity when Facing Opposition (1Timothy 4:11-16); and lastly, Integrity in Teaching about Giving (Philippians 4:14-23).

During the first session, Pastor Tom talked about The Effect of Good Doctrine where he emphasized 1Timothy 1:5 which is about “Love, Pure Heart, Good Conscience, and Sincere Faith”. He strongly said that the true meaning of Good Conscience is “We must think like God and not be a God” because most Christians are over spiritualizing as if they would not fall into temptation (1 Corinthians 10:12) but he also warned that they must not tolerate the habit of sinning but rather continue to be rooted and grounded in love. He also deals with the Effects of Strange Doctrine quoted in 1Timothy 1:4 these are fruitless discussions that affects the church, and those promoting want to be teachers, being arrogant in their presentation, are just some of the highlights of this session.

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.
