The ministerial secretary of the Headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church Pr. Rafael Dedomingo encouraged the ordination of the elders of the church to empower them to lead the Adventist church especially during this time of the pandemic.
The churches responded and currently, 20 church officers (elders, deacons, deaconesses) were ordained to the ministry. They are empowered to do the sacred work of the church such as Child Dedication, Communion Service, and other related services. The goal of the district is to have all serving elders, deacons, and deaconesses ordained.
The BNC Adventist District extend our appreciation to Pr. Roger Jimenez – the Stewardship Director of NEMM and Pr. Bernabe M. Dahunan – the NDR-IEL Director of the South Philippine Union Conference for performing the rights of ordination.
