PARTNERS MEET

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US ON THIS JOURNEY OF GRACE!
A Brief Timeline History
Months before entering seminary, James stumbled upon an MP3 lecture entitled "Preaching to Believers and Unbelievers," by Dr. Tim Keller. His mind was blown and this set him on the path of discovering more about missional ministry.
2007
First Quarter. James entered BSOP and took a subject called Urban Missions. Here he became convinced of the importance of the City in God's mission and decided he wanted to be a church planter in an urban setting.
2008
2009
With help from the Redeemer Church Planting Center, James connected with Zuriel Bernardino who was planting Heroes Church. Through this friendship, James was all the more encouraged to plant a church but only as a distant prospect.
2010
Summer. James went to Sydney, Australia for a month-long trip. James was hosted by Rev. Eugene Hor of GracePoint Church and Rev. Ying Yee of Chinese Christian Church. The project idea Ransomed Community Presbyterian Church was born. Toward the end of his time in BSOP, James was put in touch with two churches who were interested to explore a partnership toward engaging in a church planting project. He wrote up a proposal and gave it to both.
The Big Year. After some a few meetings and much prayer, James finally went with one of the two churches, UECP. This was the start of the Pilgrim Community Project. James graduated in March, moved to Katipunan in May, got married to Keren in November, and they've been laboring in this neck of the woods ever since.
2011
2012
James, the ill-equipped church planter, has the opportunity of his life. He attends Redeemer City to City's first ever International Intensive in Asia Pacific and comes back with a plan and a renewed vision for ministry. In November, Katie was born. In December, we went into pre-launch and held our first series of Advent Worship Services.
The Pilgrim Community DNA
We exist to cultivate Christ-centered communities where lives and missions are shaped by the Gospel for the good of the city, the nation, and the world.
Christ-centered
"So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith." (Galatians 6:10)
"Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ." (Colossians 1:28)
"And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit." (2 Corinthians 3:18)

An Important Update on the Current Status of Pilgrim Community Church
Our cooperation with UECP has ended after 5 years of fruitful Gospel partnership.
This has two very important implications: 1. We need Gospel partners who understand our vision, believe in what we are trying to achieve, and can give generously to our ministry as funders, 2. We are now independent and in need of church affiliation and oversight.
We would like to invite you to prayerfully consider being a financial supporter of Pilgrim Community Church either through a one-time gift or a recurring gift. Right now our weekly giving could only cover 20% of our total budget needs. We are needing to raise the 80% externally.
On the affiliation side of things, we are currently exploring our options with a denomination called the International Presbyterian Church in the UK. As well, we are in communication with GracePoint Presbyterian Church in Sydney to see what kind of interim affiliation and ministry support we might get from them.

Total amount needed to be raised for 2017:

PHP 1,440,000.00 - 20% = PHP 1,152,000

or

USD 31,308.00 - 20% = USD 25,046.40
*Based on 1:46 USD/PHP conversion
If you believe in our vision and would like to support Pilgrim Community Church financially, please consider a recurring gift of any amount for x number of months or a one-time gift of any amount.
