More ministers to care for the fold

By Antonio G. Cañaveral Jr.

THROUGH ORDINATIONS officiated by the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, from July 2018 to July 2019, a total of 269 new ministers of the gospel were added to the corps of preachers and shepherds sent to the Church’s local congregations in different parts of the world as it intensifies its works of propagation and edification.

Meanwhile, 2,125 took their oath of office as regular ministerial workers in the Church on July 27. They graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Pastoral Studies and Evangelism (BPSE) from the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) School For Ministers (SFM). The main site of the activity was the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Rome, Italy, Ecclesiastical District of Southern Europe, wherein 25 new ministers were ordained. The momentous occasion was streamed live to the Church’s Central Temple in Quezon City, Philippines with 1,881 graduates, Bacolod City with 77 graduates, Cebu City with 75 graduates, General Santos City with 44 graduates, Davao City with 48 graduates, and in multiple sites around the globe.

The Church Administration’s efforts in training new ministers and ministerial workers to the Church is in accordance with the biblical instruction: “But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens… Teach them the decrees and laws, and show them the way to live and the duties they are to perform” (Exod. 18:21, 20 New International Version).
