Berean School of Ministry



         The church planting students in BSM have just tackled the 8th block of courses for this SY 2010-2011. Three BSM alumni availed themselves to teach. MS. Jean dela cruz taught Life Management, Rev. Pat Martinex taught Bibliology and Rev. Warren Aragona taught Cross culture Missions along with his wife Dr. Victoria Aragona.
         The three are among the graduates of BSM when BSM was in its pioneering years as a training school. Pat Martinez was among the 18 pioneer students when BSM was offccially started in 1986. Warren’s batch of 26 students came in next. Jean belongs to the 4th batch of 21 students. All three planted churches after their training in BSM and the rest is now history. Pat is now pastoring a flourishing church in Panay, Capiz and is the sectional presbyter of the Eastern Capiz Section in the North Western Visayan District. Warren, among many other exploits for God’s kingdom has been an exemplary missionary to Cambodia. Jean returned later to her profession as a Math instructor but has continued to be a market place pastor. Recently, she has expressed the undying joy of being in the harvest field and is corrrently making preparations to plant a church again in an urban setting.
          Therefore, what the current students had during this block are not just teachers who teach from a set of notes, but mentors who have the field experience and the consistent and undying passion for the work of God. The three radiate through their lives and words the spirit of the pioneer that is chatracteristic of BSM philosophy of training.
