Social Media | Optimizing influence 

Life is precious that in our lifetime, we are gifted with influence and one of the avenues of our influence is on social media. In social media alone, over 32% of the total Philippine population in 2015 are involved and most of them are on Facebook.

With that in mind, whatever we communicate in our social media platforms (Facebook, tweeter, Instagram and etc.) brings a certain degree of influence and bearing. Come to think of it, How are we going to effectively use our social media platforms? How are we going to make a difference through these things ? Here are some principles we can consider in making greater impact in your social media sites:

1. Identify your values

What we post intentionally or unintentionally may communicate or miscommunicate what you value. Identifying what we value helps us have a clear judgement on what we consistently pound to the public.

Let the people know what is valuable, so innate in you and close to your heart and share them to the world.

2. Personal Mission Statement 

Once you have identified your core values, now, comes your sense of purpose that enables you to a have missional life, so what’s your personal mission statement? If you haven’t have one, now is the best time to reflect, whether it may be for this season or longterm.

Be missional and be intentional, whether it may be inspiring others through photos and encouraging and uplifting others through words. What’s your advocacy? Where do you think God is placing your purpose in the puzzle of a global picture?

3. Communicate consistently what you value. 

There is power in consistency, If you’re a person who aspires to bring encouragement to people through social media or whatever endeavor it may be, then, consistently communicates it. Over-communicating the same message in different ways enables readers and followers to actually grasp deeply what you want to say. Make it to a point that they would eagerly look forward for your next post.

4. Filter what you post.

Embracing what you value will be your ultimate guide in filtering your messages. Filtering is necessary to check whether what we are about to communicate is align to our values.

I had my share of irresponsible postings that completely miscommunicated in million ways just by a single picture or a sentence.

In my journey towards living a life with purpose, and reaching the next generation. God showed me that I am a steward of my social media influence as well. To bring the same message of Hope that He gives me, share his faithfulness and plant the seed of his power through the readers and social media followers.

CAMPUS MINISTRY: Praying together


Our church just ended our annual prayer and fasting. It was a great time to start the year seeking God, re-aligning our hearts to His and dedicating the days and months to come.

As our students joined the prayer and fasting, It was also a great opportunity to impart faith not only for their life and family but also for their campus, daring to believe for the impossible to happen, knowing that apart from God, it cannot happen.

We gathered few students to help us come up with the prayer points for their campus that the leaders and students will be praying for during the 5 day prayer and fast.

As the prayer and fasting goes through, students met once a day inside the campus and prayed together, believing God for breakthrough in their campus, fellow students, professors and staff. It was refreshing to see these students take the initiative to meet everyday to pray together and for one another. Their commitment to meet up speak volumes of their faith and unity.

Together, they stood before God representing their campus, their fellow students, asking God for His will and believing God for the multitudes to encounter Jesus.

One of their initiatives also was doing prayer walk in the campus. This is praying and declaring the truth and blessing according to the bible to every corner of the campus.

It is important to impart the value of prayer through praying for the campus. By doing this, we are imparting faith to these next generation leaders.

Go beyond feeding

Waking up extra early on sa Saturday morning was a struggle, it used to be a day with extended sleep. But for the last 7 weeks, By God’s grace I was able to wake up early and head on to Maybunga Elementary School Annex Building from my place. Upon  arrival, I would check if the volunteers for the day has arrived, then proceed to registration and orientation for the kids program.

The kids program was an initiative partnership to the school to help continue the feeding program to the identified students suffering from malnutrition. The school provided a list of students who are on the moderately malnourish to participate and these are ranging from grade 3 to 6.

Last November 7, 2015 was the day we started kids program,through the kids program we don’t just feed them, we prepare weekly event that starts with hand washing, to games and inter-action time with the volunteers of the day, Bible story telling, group discussions to help process the lessons and apply it to daily life, prayer and the most waited part, the feeding.

We don’t just ask them to sit down and be feed, we go beyond it. We don’t just nourish their physical bodies with healthy food, we also nourish their souls, by sharing  God’s word through story telling, imparting God’s goodness, faithfulness and unfailing character. Imparting hope, love, forgiveness, faith, gratitude and a lot more. We teach them to pray and encourage to pray and be in faith. Now that is planting hope and going beyond feeding.

My heart is filled with gratitude to those who help and made this possible, I am thankful to all the volunteers who gave to help us fund the feeding, to the volunteers who generously gave their time and talent to help us run our kids program every Saturday. This has been one of my  highlight for 2015. This has been a wonderful opportunity to give back the community.Waking up extra  early on Saturday was worth it, and priceless every time I see these kids smiles filled with joy, gratitude and hope.

Old boring stroke

No new strategy in  reaching the campus, just the old boring stroke that perfectly work in reaching the campus and raising leaders.  Week in and out we meet together to be discipled and to disciple for Christ. Sharing the gospel and leading students to bible study.

As the students grew in relationship with the Lord, they themselves take the lead in reaching their fellow students. Leading fellow student in One 2 one discipleship to discipleship groups.

LIFE Classes & Groups

One of our ways of reaching the campus is imparting values of Leadership, Integrity, faith and excellence among the students through what we call LIFE Classes. This month we are so privilege to partner with the College of Hotel and Restaurant Management of Arellano University Pasig. After each topic the students group themselves with the coaches to help them process the topic and how they can apply in their lives.

Raising Leaders

This month some of our students from different campuses went through the Foundations for Victory Class. Raising mighty leaders means helping them to become strong in their biblical foundation and deeper into the knowledge of their relationship with Jesus.

Praying for the campus

As the school year starts, we wanted to commit and dedicate our campuses to the Lord, We have gathered our student leaders fresh from Ignite 2015 for a time of praying for one another , praying for the campus and direction of campus ministry.

We place Jesus at the center  and reason of everything of why we do campus ministry.  We are excited for this year school year for the great harvest ahead, open doors and personal breakthroughs for our leaders.

Leaders Huddle & Bonding

One of the many things I am grateful for is to work along with these students, The are committed and passionate in reaching the campus for Jesus. Most these leaders are from different campuses, The campus they are reaching out is far from their current school and yet they make time, They make extra effort to make Jesus known in Rizal Technological University Pasig City.
