It’s been a month of learning, relearning and unlearning here at the Every Nation Leadership Institute (ENLI). Ninety-four full time church planters, church staff, world missionaries and campus missionaries from several nations around the globe gathered to be trained and equipped under the School of Church Planting (SCP), School of World Missions (SWM) and School of Campus Ministry (SCM) starting last January 23, 2017.
The 17th batch of School of Campus Ministry (SCM17), where I am a part of, consist of 36 incoming campus missionaries all over Metro Manila, Philippine Provinces (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao), and the nations of Japan, China, Indonesia, Dubai and Sweden. The youngest in our batch is Elias Fredricson, 20 years old from Sweden while our eldest is Elsa Espino who is 55 years old from Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines. Some of my classmates are licensed engineers, nurses, teachers, and architect. Some have also pursued different professions after they graduated from the universities. But in this season everyone in our class chose to pursue being a full-time campus missionary in order to win the campuses for Jesus Christ and to raise the next generation of leaders and world changers. Everyone committed to give their lives and their time to give value to the calling of God in our lives and to lead the next generation in fulfilling the calling of God for them.
