A mini-graduation ceremony of 16 students from GCI Baguio, Bokod and Mankayan churches took place during the worship service of GCI - Baguio City/La Trinidad Church last May 22, 2016. This is after several  Saturday classes with Ptr. Rex Dela Peña on the “Pulpit Ministry - Preaching Training/Workshop”. The local church requested Ptr. Rex to facilitate the preaching training/workshop for the purpose of raising a generation of preachers who will allow and offer themselves be used by God to be his mouthpiece in sharing His love through the pulpit ministry.

On the first Saturday class, Ptr. Rex gave an intensive lecture on what the Pulpit Ministry is all about and the joy in participating in this ministry. In the succeeding classes, speaking assignments were given to the students for them to have the opportunity to prepare,study and deliver their sermon/messages with the personal guidance and mentoring of Ptr. Rex.

Everyone were blessed and encouraged as they delivered their sermon/messages for the first time in the class practicum. After each individual delivery, Ptr. Rex and the class gave affirmations, sermonic significances, suggestions and constructive comments for the speaker. The classes were truly a great time of learning and hearing God’s word.

Ptr. Rex challenged and commissioned the group with Isaiah 6:8 - “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go before us?” And I said, “Here am I, Send me!”  Ptr. Rex is looking forward to seeing the group deliver their sermon/messages not just in GCI Baguio City/La Trinidad Church but also in other GCI congregations in the future. - Jep Parcasio
