Dr. Paul C. Tabon

Jehny M. Pedazo

Ptr. Renato Eustaquio, a 2007 CPE graduation and senior pastor at Vineyard Christian Church in Bocaue, Bulacan, was our guest speaker. Each trainee also gave their theological integration from the CPE term. Dr. Paul Tabon gave the commissioning at the end of the main service.

This was also the first time that Dr. Paul Tabon and Ms. Jehny Pedazo served as CPE Supervisors (SITs) under CPSP-Philippines. Good job!!

Afterwards, we moved a few feet from Chapel B to the Bukal Life Care office for lunch fellowship. It was a great day. Congratulations to all who have stayed true to finish the course. We are excited to see what God has for each in the future.

Visioning Weekend


We held a gathering of staff and trustees of Bukal Life Care on August 31 and September 1st. Thirteen attended. We were hosted at the Mission Center of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in Baguio City. A number of issues were dealt with.

A few items:

1.  Priorities. We are actively involved in a number of ministries… far more than our group can handle well with our limited financial and human resources. Based on our brainstorming, the following were identified as priorities:

  • Clinical Pastoral Training (CPE/CPT). Hospital ministry
  • Disaster Response Training, and crisis response work
  • Pastoral Care Training and Ministry

2.  Ladderization. Develop training programs that are all of certification and progression.  For example, for Disaster Response:

DR Training Program3.  Improve our financial structure and office management.

There are more things… but this is a good start for now. We are so thankful to those who joined and added insights. We are also appreciative of our great hosts.
