Transformational Impact: Our passion is that the next generation would have a personal relationship with Jesus and an encounter with the Holy Spirit, and to know the Father’s purpose for their life.
Ministry Focus: Our ministry focus is on the 20 million students that dream of finishing school and getting a good job. Our current city, Iloilo, is an education hub with eight universities and six colleges.
But we have one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in Southeast Asia.
160,000 young people are the head of their households and never finish school. This results in social isolation, interruption of studies, and denial of work. We have noticed as we minister among our students that anxiety, depression, and family conflicts are common.
But there is hope!
Your Impact: Through your partnership, we train local churches to impact these students lives by organizing campus outreaches, discipleship groups, and facilitating a modular Bible school.
When you reach emerging young leaders with the gospel, it will change nations!
Ministry History: Rod attended Bible school in Dallas, Texas graduating with an associate degree in Theology. He began ministry in the Philippines in 2009, interning with a children’s ministry and saw a need to train students in values-based leadership.
Rod also hosts short-term teams, empowering the international body of Christ to gain a greater understanding of God’s mission.
Elna was born in the Philippines and reached for Christ during college. She entered full time ministry in 2014 working on staff at Victory Church Iloilo. She has led many short-term mission trips across Southeast Asia.
We met at Victory Church and were married in 2019, and our sending church is Coastline Church Victoria B.C.
