San Jose del Monte, Philippines
Carl and Michelle Gormley, Calvary Baptist Church
The ministries of Calvary Baptist Church are located on the outskirts of Manila in the rapidly growing city of San Jose del Monte, which is part of Bulacan. This ministry was established in the 1980s as a direct result of missions, and the heartbeat of the ministry continues to be centered around reaching the world with the love of Christ in any way possible. It is an ever-expanding ministry that has its foundation in the church itself but reaches out through various ministries such as a Christian Academy, Bible Institute, church planting, sending out and supporting Filipino missionaries around the world, Bible clubs in resettlement areas and, most recently, a children’s home. They are currently working on a building project at the site of the children’s home that will include a new church, an education and a day care center for single moms. The population of the area is nearing 900,000 with a large number of the residents residing in government resettlement areas established for squatters who were relocated from Manila. The leadership of the church was recently transferred from missionary Carl Gormley and one of his Bible Institute graduates, Pastor Edgar Robes. Pastor Edgar and his wife Miriam are doing an excellent job carrying on the work of the ministry and leading Calvary Baptist Church to grow in their community reach.
