In 1983 the Billy Graham Evangelist Association
sponsored a conference in Amsterdam primarily for itinerant evangelists.
Bishop George Castro and Dr. Greg Tingson led the Philippine delegation
composed of about 80 pastors and evangelists. The conference not
only equipped them as ministers of God’s Word but also rekindled
their passion for evangelism.
Towards the end of the ten-day gathering, Dr.
Tingson summoned all the Filipino delegates and voiced out the
urgency of responding to the challenge they had heard. He shared
with them the need to form an association or a team that will
work together towards the evangelization of the entire Philippines.
During the deliberation, a network of evangelist was conceived
– Bayanihan Fellowship of Philippine evangelists (BAFPE),
with Dr. Tingson serving as consultant and adviser.
In that same year, one of the leaders of the Philippine
Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC) initiated a meeting with
the group to establish partnership with it in helping fulfill
the DAWN (Discipling a Whole Nation) 2000 vision of seeing a church
planted in every barangay nationwide by year 2000. Challenged
by the vision, the body readily committed to work hand in hand
with PCEC. It was also during this meeting that the network’s
name was changed to The League of Philippine Evangelists (LPE).
Since then, LPE has been actively and faithfully
carrying out its role in discipling the nation for Christ by equipping
evangelists from all over the country through conferences and
seminars and by doing saturation evangelism.
