449 churches joined the simultaneous revival crusade headed by the elders of the church last January 19-25, 2020. This is part of the discipleship program which was implemented in every Adventist Church of Caraga Region.
The office of the Ministerial Secretary under the leadership of Pr. Ralph Dedomingo sponsored the first month of the year 2020. The program of the ministerial secretary focus on encouraging the elders, deacons, and deaconesses of the church to conduct 10 Days of Prayer, Communion Service, and Revival Crusade. The elders take turns in leading the three big programs of the church. “Our members of the church participated in the 10 days of prayer and prayed to God to prepare the speakers, the venue, the care groups, and cared family for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit,” said Pr. Minoru Efren Estrada – the district pastor of Mangagoy District. Pr. Asher Tepan mentioned, that “after the spiritual preparation, care groups started to visit the backsliders of the church and invited them to attend the revival crusade.” After the revival crusade Pr. German Ramos observed that those who participated in the program are excited and ready for more evangelism campaigns.
The Revival Crusade is participated by more than 500 elders. The Lord has blessed the program and added more than 1,500 newly converts to the church.
The administrators continued to encourage the Adventists in Caraga Region to be united in preaching the gospel and making disciples.
