PBS Participates in the 32nd National Convention of FGBMFI

The 32nd National Convention of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) was held last May 1-3, 2014 at the Summit Circle Hotel in Cebu City with the theme, “Transforming the Marketplace.” The FGBMFI is a network of Christian businessman. Their chapters are located in more than 165 nations across the world. Their mission is to reach men in all nations for Jesus Christ, to call men back to God, to help believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit and to grow spiritually, to train and equip men to fulfill the Great Commission, to provide an opportunity for Christian fellowship and to bring a greater unity among all people in the body of Christ.
Dr. Nora Lucero, PBS General Secretary, attended the Convention last May 2, 2014 and presented the ministries of PBS, particularly the May They Be One (MTBO) Bible Campaign and the Handwritten Unity Bible (HUB). The Bible Campaign is a response to the call of Christ to “be one” (John 17:21). It is a fundraising program of PBS in partnership with Episcopal Commission for the Biblical Apostolate (ECBA) of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP), Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), and other Christian organizations. It aims to raise sufficient funds to enable at least 5 million Bibles to 5 million poor Filipino families – upholding and promoting PBS’ Mission of “Making the Bible Known,” and fulfilling PBS’ Vision of “A Transformed Philippines through God’s Word”. The HUB is a historic, two-year project which aims to raise Bible awareness, foster Christian unity and raise at least PHP 30 million for MTBO Bibles. It was launched during the 2nd anniversary celebration of the MTBO last September 30, 2010.
