After 22 years of serving as National Director of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), Bishop Efraim Tendero passed the baton of leadership to Bishop Noel A. Pantoja, who was recently re-elected as Vice President and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Philippine Bible Society (PBS).
Bishop Pantoja was installed into office soon after the election of Bishop Tendero as the incoming World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) General Secretary and CEO. Bishop Tendero succeeded Dr. Geoff Tunnicliffe, who served WEA for the past 10 years.

Lucero,  witnessed the installation of Bishop Pantoja and the commissioning of Bishop Tendero during a thanksgiving celebration that was held at the Christ’s Commission Fellowship Center last February 23.
Bishop Pantoja is presently on his second term as member of the Executive Committee of PBS Board. On the other hand, Bishop Tendero served as PBS President and Chairman of the Board of Trustees from 1996 to 1997 and 1999 to 2000.
PBS rejoices with its partners in the ministry as they take higher grounds, opening up greater doors of opportunities to spread the Word of God. “We are blessed that these leaders are with  the Bible Society. And, we continue to pledge our support to their ministries, leading the Evangelical Churches here in the Philippines and in the world,” Dr. Nora Lucero shared.

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
