Mega Church Project in Davao region breaks ground
September 18, 2020 • in News & Events
The Seventh-day Adventist Church leaders in Davao region laid down the time capsule as the construction of the 12 million-peso Mega Church Integrated Project (MCIP) finally kicked-off during the ground-breaking ceremony held on September 16 in Panabo City, Davao del Norte.
In his message, Pr. Edwin T. Magdadaro, president of the Davao Region headquarters of the Adventist Church, emphasized that “a church serves as a pillar of God’s goodness and presence and a promise of His faithfulness.”
He further said, “as each one becomes part of the church’s building, let us also desire to be part of God’s kingdom.”
This future church will take its stage on a one-hectare land area donated by the family of the late Dr. Emil and Jovita Garcia of Davao City.
The MCIP is spearheaded by the South Philippine Union Conference (SPUC) and supported by the seven Adventist church headquarters in Mindanao, to name– Davao Mission, Central Mindanao Mission, Northeastern Mindanao Mission, North Central Mindanao Conference, Southern Mindanao Mission, Western Mindanao Conference, and Zamboanga Peninsula Mission.
The first recipient of this MCIP was the Western Mindanao Conference (WMC), with Northeastern Mindanao Mission (NEMM) following, and Davao Mission (DM) closing in.
With the leadership of the SPUC, the church anticipates and aspires that the megachurch construction will fully realize with God’s divine providence despite the pandemic the world is facing at the moment. (by Queeny Juntilla/Photo by Jheryl Maceda)
