The Trainers of Pastors International Coalition (TOPIC) Philippines is an offshoot of the Second International TOPIC Consultation held in March 1999 at the Subic Bay Freeport in Zambales. During that historic event, participants representing one hundred organizations convened to address how to meet the need for equipping the 2,000,000 shepherds worldwide who have never completed a formal theological training.

In the said consultation, representatives of organizations based in the Philippines gathered to form a National Coordinating Council (NCC) for TOPIC Philippines. Initiated by Bishop Efraim M. Tendero and led by Philip C. Flores, the NCC was tasked to conduct a follow-up conference to bring together a broader group of organizations involved in non-formal training in the country. Hence, TOPIC Philippines was formally established in a national consultation held on October 12015, 1999 at the Christian Development Centre in Tagaytay City.
