Building a Church – 2014 The Philippines

Crossbridge Christian Church funded and erected a church building in the Philippines in February 2014.  A team of 14 Crossbridge volunteers departed on February 9th.

Upon arrival, the team from Crossbridge, along with a leader from World Mission Builders, built, painted, finished the block building and held a dedication service all within two weeks time. 

The building is located in the city of Orion on the Island of Bataan.  The Pastor of the church is Pastor Gerez. He is currently in the process of finishing his degree from Manila Bible Seminary and is ministering with his congregation on the weekends.  The report is that this young man is making more progress than some who are already full time in a church.  We are blessed to have been able to partner with Pastor Gerez, and World Mission Builders to help this church with their first building. 

You can watch a video of the building process here:
