For gifts and Donations

Help for two girls – Dorcas (26 years old) and Honey (23 years old), both with extreme special needs who were placed in a private boarding school for individuals with special needs.  A total of Twenty Thousand Pesos (Php 20,0000) or US$385 monthly is needed for both Dorcas’s and Honey’s room, board and medical care.

Dorcas, Rosely - CGM Director, and Honey

In 1977 Christian Growth Ministries’ Home of Joy (HOJ) opened to provide Christian love, care, nutrition, clothing, medical care and education for hundreds of children who were abandoned, neglected, and orphaned. 

Christian Growth Ministries (CGM) cared for these needy children before they were placed with a family either through foster care, adoption, or reconciliation with their families, Many children, as well as adults,  came to faith in Christ through this ministry! 

Over the years governmental regulations made it very difficult for this Christian ministry to comply. Last year the CGM Philippine board closed the HOJ with each child lovingly placed in an evangelical organization.

Two of the children – Dorcas, a 25-year-old, and Honey, a 22-year-old, (both with extreme special needs) were placed in a private boarding school for individuals with special needs. A total of $385 (P 20,000) is needed monthly for both Dorcas’ and Honeys’ room, board and medical care. 

It has been seven months since Dorcas and Honey have been at the private care facility where the two girls receive the utmost care. Staff from CGM visit them every month. 

The CGM  HOJ, in its continuing responsibility, would greatly appreciate any financial help, large or small gits, towards Dorca’s and Honey’s support.

Residential Care Program

A twenty four (24-hour) group care services that provides alternative parental care to 0 -2 years old abandoned, neglected, orphaned, and voluntarily committed children. The children stay in the houses until permanent placement is made either reintegration to their biological family/relatives or through adoption.


Under this program about 1,850 children had been admitted and given love and care. In 1983, it was licensed by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to process adoption and from that time 250 abandoned and voluntarily committed children were placed to their adoptive families. Around 200 among the admitted children were reintegrated to their biological families/relatives and for independent living.




A One-Day Conference sponsored by Christian Growth Ministries (CGM) and Action International Ministries (ACTION).







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.

Foster Care Program

An individualize-planned temporary substitute parental care to 0 -2 years old abandoned, neglected, orphaned, and voluntarily committed children through the help of DSWD Licensed Foster Parents. The children stay in the foster family care until permanent placement is made through reintegration to biological family/relatives, adoption or for independent living.


It started in 1994 for provision of individualized care and supervision to the abandoned, neglected, orphaned and voluntarily committed children. This was made possible through the help of Filipino families who opened their homes to care for a non related child/ren.

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.

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.
