An Example of the FG Global Church Plant and Water Initiative
Reported by Lead Pastor Ronnie Tejada – New Level Church
Last January 2022, we launched our very first church planting initiative outside the United States. New Level Church Philippines (NLC PH) was born and received her legal entity from Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last February 8, 2022. The local pastor of NLC PH, Pastor Agosto Mataro, was a childhood friend of mine. We actually attended Vacation Bible School together when we were in elementary grades. After more than three decades, the Lord crossed our paths again and we were both surprised that we became pastors, called by God to serve Him full-time in the ministry. He was looking for someone to guide him in the ministry at the time and asked me to mentor him. After a year of intentional and relational discipleship and mentorship, the Lord has led us to extend the ministry of New Level Church in the Philippines. It was started as a children’s outreach and it grew rapidly and became a local church. PTL!
