The Ministry

I have been serving as a pastor and church planter since 1998.

As the founder and president of Open Eyes Mission, I planted 6 churches in “open” Roman Catholic communities, trained and deployed 2 church planting teams in “closed” Muslim areas, trained hundreds of pastors and missionaries in 11 cities/towns all over the Philippines, served more than 1,000 children-at-high-risk and their families, and developed relief, rehabilitation, counseling, and Bible study ministries to more than 3,000 survivors of killer typhoons. And as Northern Mindanao Director for Asian Center for Missions (ACM), I trained more than 135 Filipino missionaries and facilitated the deployment of more than 50 of my trainees to China, Pakistan, and other restricted-access countries in Asia.

Today, through multimedia and internet-based tools, I continue to provide leadership,
teaching, and ministry to two new church plants in two different regions of the Philippines; mentoring to one new church planter in Manila; and trainings in theology and ministry for five churches — three in the Philippines, one in the Middle East, and one in the United States.

Moreover, I have been leading the pursuit and accomplishment of the California to the Middle East (CA2ME) Evangelism and Church Planting Plan.  To be equipped for and to accomplish this new and greater vision, my family and I moved in 2015 to Dyer, IN, where I completed the Master of Theological Studies (MTS) program at Mid-America Reformed Seminary (MARS).

On January 26, 2018, I pioneered a Muslim evangelism and church planting mission in  Chicago. At the same time, I have also been undertaking the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program at Trinity International University / Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL.

Our vision:

A network of house churches that will serve as a training and sending base for church planting teams to Muslims in key cities of the United States and abroad, especially the Middle East

Our mission:

To build friendships, evangelize, make disciples, and plant house churches among Muslims
