Visiting our Victory Church in Bacolod has provoked my faith big time.

VOLUNTEERISM.

You know a church is growing when you see Volunteerism in high gear.  Everyone wants to pitch in.  People want to honor God and make disciples.  From the kids to the oldest member see lives transformed by the gospel of Christ.

Couples Ministry to Youth. Kids church to ushering. Worship team to admin support.

You know people are sold into the vision when everyone feels they are a stock holder of the organization.

CHANGED LIVES.

Borrowing the NBA line, Pastor Ryan made a sticker  with the Victory logo and the statement “where amazing happens” posted in his car.

Amazing is an understatement.

When God steps in a situation, things change.

From Mike to Jeffrey, Pie to Jopher.  Amazing.

Kids bringing their parents to church, old classmates who’ve turned from drugs to Christ.

LEADERSHIP BY EXAMPLE.

The church is in the process of expanding their facility in Robinsons Place Bacolod.  Everyone pitching in, offering, sacrificing – starting with their senior pastor.

Ryan sold his X-trail and donated the money to the building fund.

That’s an adventure of faith.  Having a wife and 3 small kids – pretty bold step of faith.

Grabe.

DIET.

I need to get into a diet. Haha!

Kuppa Gelato. Calea Mudpie. Manukan inasal. Felicia’s meals.

Again, grabe!

LESSONS LEARNED.

When I visit a Victory church in the province, people say I was able to help.  This trip, they’ve been able to help me.  I thought I was going to be a blessing.  I came out of this trip blessed.

 

With our Senior Pastor, Ryan Gidor
