Our Core Ministry Principles
1) Focus on the neediest and most neglected
2) We emphasize practicality over theory. We always endeavor to make our outreaches relevant to the real life situations of the people we interact with using resources and models that are reproducible in that community.
3) Indigenous sustainability. This is the metric for all of our church planting goals.
4) Responsibility-based leadership development. Leaders don't develop in the classroom. We strongly believe in modelling the principles we wish to pass on through real life involvement with our communities.
INNOVATIVE COMPASSION, MEANINGFUL HOPE
After spending four years working in another SE Asian nation, Tom and Evelyn MacIntosh felt drawn to a rural area of the southern Philippines in 1991. This area had a high illiteracy and infant mortality rate and was a central activity point for secessionist rebels. What began as medical, dental and midwifery clinics in minority villages soon grew into a larger, diversified focus utilizing Filipino national workers. Today we are involved in medical outreaches, Education, Scholarship Programs, Values Formation, Disaster relief and development, hholistic livelihood training.and much more.
