GMC Middle East

On June 25, 2007 the executive presbytery of the PGCAG approved (EP 21-07) a new district called the Global District Council (GDC). This district will provide an opportunity for Filipino churches outside the Philippines to be formally linked with PGCAG.  At present Filipino A/G churches from eight countries have signified their interest to be part of GDC.  An organizing convention is being planned to gather the constituents of this new district.

Middle East Section Organized!

The ME section was finally organized on February 5, 2010 in Dubai, U.A.E. under the leadership of Rev. Rewell Castro (chairman), Rev. Ernesto Pailan (secretary), and Rev. Jesse Medina (treasurer). GDCME at present has five member churches in the U.A.E. and one church in Bahrain. Other pastors include Ptrs. Joseph Awal, Bonie Baldoman, Fredrick Catawe, Edgar Egam, Reynald Lozada, Julius Palpeg, Abel Suizo, and Ma. Theresa Vacarizas (Bahrain).

The above officers were installed by the general secretary of PGCAG during a service held at the Majestic Hotel in Dubai with 136 persons in attendance. During their first official meeting, the officers and the PGCAG representative discussed future plans of GDCME and its active participation both in home and world missions.  One of the items on their priority list is the establishment of a training center in this region. Our brethren in Dubai are also active in ministering to the Filipino OFWs who are in dire need such as those who are victims of abuse and exploitation related to their jobs.
