PCEC Spearheads Global Outreach Day in the Philippines

May 2016


The Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC) with 200 nations, spearheaded the mobilization of the Philippine Christian Churches to join the 2016 Global Outreach Day on May 28. The aim is for every believer to reach at least one with the Gospel on that day. With the participation of Mindanao Evangelical Leaders Council (MELC) of Region 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and Compostela Valley, Cebu Province Ministerial Association (CPMA), Region 8, Luzon and Metro Manila Churches, we were able to provide2.5 million Gospel tracts featuring Nick Vuyicic in Tagalog and English to share on that day.

We thank and praise God for some initial report as of July 8, 2016:
Participating Churches 352
Christian Trained for Evangelism 4,068
Participating Christians 5,243
People reached with the Gospel 273,052

CBCP, NCCP, PCEC Partner Anew Against Human Trafficking
June 2016
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), the National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP), and the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC) signed a Covenant of Partnership on Human Trafficking last June 10, during the 3rd General Meeting of the Philippine Interfaith Movement Against Human Trafficking (PIMAHT). The Meeting was held at the PCEC Evangelical Center, Project 3, Quezon City.

The Covenant is the concrete affirmation of the three federations’ desire to work together in adding their voice to end the evils of human trafficking. The first part of the Covenant says, ‘The PCEC, CBCP and NCCP are committed to stand against human trafficking in all its diverse forms and to support victims of human trafficking to reclaim their dignity and to seek justice. We are compelled by the biblical truth that every person bears the inherent likeness of God and the dignity that implies (Gen 1:27), the call of Jesus Christ to love one another (John 13:34), and to set the oppressed free and ‘proclaiming the acceptable year of the Lord’ (Luke 4:18-19). We also affirm the basic human right that every person bears ‘to life, liberty and security’ and that ‘no one shall be held in slavery or servitude’.

The three largest Christian federations committed to:

* Support our churches to become places of welcome, healing and hospitality for victims and survivors of human trafficking, providing places of sanctuary, legal support, emergency funds, and medical and psychological support;

* Take an active role in educating our local congregations and their local communities on the reality of human trafficking in its many diverse forms;

* Provide forums and venues so that the voice and stories of survivors of trafficking may be heard and their hidden oppression revealed.

* Engage in lobbying through international and national networks of which we are a part to ensure that all forms of human trafficking are addressed by governments and their legal judicial systems;

* Create a network of those members and organizations within our respective councils who are providing direct services to victims of human trafficking so that there might be mutual learning, understanding and referrals of survivors of human trafficking so that they might access the most appropriate services to meet their specific needs

* Strengthen the response of each council by sharing with each other our experience, learning and knowledge in respect to our responses to human trafficking

* Continue to support the Philippine Interfaith Movement Against Human Trafficking (PIMAHT) which has been a significant ecumenical initiative of our three organizations, which underlines the importance we together place on addressing human trafficking, and to establish mutually agreed mechanisms for resource sharing to ensure that there are adequate resources for the ongoing work of PIMAHT.

* Abide by our Governing Rules and Bylaws

The Covenant was signed by the The Most Rev. Ruperto C. Santos, D.D, Chairperson of the CBCP Episcopal Commission for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People, Rev. Rex R.B Reyes, Jr., General Secretary of the National Council of Churches in the Philippines, and Bp. Noel A. Pantoja, National Director of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches.
