- CPE Transition. Our Summer group of 16 trainees completed their CPE units— some in the last week of May er and some in the first week of June. A new group of 15 trainees (with Supervisor Celia, and SITs Vo and Edgar) started on June 15. Most of the trainees are associated with either PBTS (Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary) or LTS (Lutheran Theological Seminary). Most are either doing a half-unit intensive, or a full-unit extended.
- This June starts a first with us. We are in partnership with Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary (PBTS) in establishing a new course of study. PBTS ow has two new degrees: Master of Divinity in Pastoral Care, and Master of Arts in Pastoral Care (M.Div-PC and MA-PC). Both are integrated with our CPE program. We are excited to see how things go. More info is available at https://pbts.net.ph/index.php/2018/05/15/pastoral-care-degrees-at-philippine-baptist-theological-seminary/
- On June 17, Bob and Celia went to BIBAK Bible Church to hold a Conflict Resolution seminar for Youth and Young Adult leaders from various local churches. We are thankful to our hosts for their hospitality and we pray that they found value in the activity.
