Introducing the Global Family:  

Kapatirang Menonita Ng Pilipinas Incorporated – Philippines 

Emerging Conference 

Kapatirang Menonita Ng Pilipinas Incorporated or Mennonite Brethren of the Philippines is an Emerging Conference in partnership with ICOMB. The Conference is composed of 8 local churches or congregations placed in different regions of the country, with a total of approximately 670 members. 

Although still a relatively small conference, Mennonite Brethren of the Philippines praises God for the families and individuals He allows the churches to minister to. The Conference looks forward to the resumption of in-person activities such as home Bible studies, visitations, campus outreaches, and other ministries. 

In September 2021, the following events took place in the Philippine Church Plant Ministry: 

Tagusao Shore Youth Ministry 

It was a happy and blessed day when 16 young people and 1 adult decided to follow Jesus in baptism, who are being led by Pastor Shown in discipleship, and the learning of musical instruments, as the result of the young people’s interest in music. Some of these new believers were introduced to the gospel by TREK teams who came to visit the ministry in Palawan.

Tagusao Shore 10th anniversary 

“Dakila ang iyong katapatan”, Great is thy faithfulness, echoed throughout the congregation as they sang with gratitude to God’s faithfulness in sustaining the ministry in Tagusao Shore, Brooke’s Point, Palawan. Young people rendered an interpretative dance which was appreciated by almost a hundred people, members, and guests, who graced the joyful celebration. Prayers for God’s continued provision for the various things needed for the completion of the church building are very appreciated. 

Missional Leadership Training (MLT) – Modules 1 and 2 

Praise God for the opportunity to teach pastors, church leaders, and youth leaders of the various churches and congregations of Brooke’s Point. Module 1 was attended by 58 participants and Module 2 by 37. 

“Personally, this training has enriched my spiritual life and the knowledge I gained will help me become more effective as a leader in our church.” – Ronnie Conde 

“The Lord’s (disciple’s) prayer as a way to build intimacy with God is something that has truly blessed me.” – Keeya, JCLHC 

“I appreciated so much the training we received. That is why I encouraged our young people to join in the training. Praise God!” – Vilfred, youth leader, GDP 

Brooke’s Point youth center 

Classes are still suspended at this time. However, students of Palawan State University are allowed to frequent the campus for school work requirements on and off-campus. Although we have started to work with the youth leaders of the seven local churches, we are waiting for the opening of classes to proceed with the renovation of the proposed Student Center beside the PSU campus. Please pray with us for God’s blessing and guidance as we plan for the renovation of our Student Center.
