Christ Centered Ministry

 A Note from our Founder and Presiding Bishop :

Beloved Bishops, Pastors, Directors, Ministers, Ministry / Church Members and Students: Greetings in the name of Jesus, our living Savior and loving Lord…   

It is so good to be communicating to each of you again this month.  I am staying very busy establishing new Churches and branch seminaries and universities worldwide. We are currently opening new branches of Northwestern Christian University and also conducting crusades under the anointing of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the Philippine Islands. Hundreds have come to Christ and there have been documented healings and many rededications at our crusade/ Revival meetings. We were honored to have a private meeting with the President of the Philippines at the Malacanyan Palace in Manila, home of the President. We discussed important matters involving legislation for faith and morals in the Philippines. The meeting was covered by press and television and pictures are posted on our ministry websites.

The Ministry and Outreach of Northwestern Christian University and the Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ (WWCJ) in the Philippines

It is the mission of the Worldwide Church of Jesus Christ, Northwestern Christian University and Northwestern Theological Seminary is to go out into the world and make disciples for Jesus Christ. The most recent trip to the Philippines in June 2010 was met with great anticipation, as Bishop Dr. Samuel Galloza and Bishop Dr. Howard M. Sarkela, traveled from the island of Cebu to the island of Leyte to minister and teach the people in one of our local branches. The Bishops were joined by Bishop Dr. Seth Lagunda (Bishop of the Philippines for WWJC and a NCU Branch Director) who also ministered and interpreted during the teaching. Under the anointing of God we are seeing the spread of the Gospel through dedicated service in our calling to fulfill the Great Commission.. One example can be found in a young youth of 13 years of age, John Mark, who is used by God in a mighty way to evangelize his people (John Mark can be seen in the center photo above). John Mark boldly witnesses to everyone he comes in contact with and is a frequent visitor to the Mayor's Office where he is welcome to come and expound the Word of God to the mayor and his staff in Southern Leyte, Philippines.
