God's ways are not our ways.

God's ways are not our ways. We plan but in the end it is God's plan that prevails.


It's been a long time that our church had been praying to own a lot where we can build a place to freely gather with the brethren to worship the Lord. Hand in hand the church is saving money to raise funds so we can buy the lot.

This year's project was having Concerts to increase the church funds. Our first concert was held in our current church location and the second one was at Victory Church here in Batangas City. We were so blessed how they extended their generosity and have us used their facility for free to help us accomplish the vision God told us.

The concerts were all successful but the proceeds from these events is just a small percentage of the total amount we needed to raise to buy the lot we are asking God to give us. After seeing the result of the fundraising events, we all know that this is not the end and we are to keep on and continue what God is telling is to do and it is to buy a property for the church. In our own might we know that we can't make it but with God on our side YES we can! For sure in God's due time He's going to give it.

Last December 25, our church had a Christmas service attended by some of the church members and my parents were also with us in the Christmas Celebration. It was a fun day for everyone. I didn't know that it was also the time where God spoke to my Mom about the Church's Lot Fund Project.

The next day, she come to visit me and talked about the vision of the church about the Lot and the money we are raising. She knew that the church needs a huge amount of money to own a lot and much more a bigger amount of money to construct the church building.

This year, my parents were able to buy a piece of land in Libjo, Batangas City - few minutes drive to SM Batangas. The amount of this property was nearly the same amount of the lot the church is aiming to buy. She told me that as God leads her, they are willing to give a place for the church. Instead of raising funds to buy a lot, the church can now raise money for the church building construction. What a quick answer from the Lord!


Just this afternoon (December 27, 2015) we came to visit the property some of the church members are with us to pray and seek for God's guidance.


The land was already provided but the vision is not yet finished - this is just the beginning. We want to thank you all for praying with us. Your supports made us go a very long way. Continue to join us as we see how God will work with us in accomplishing the vision He showed us a church.


We would appreciate any support you want to extend to our church as how God is leading you. You may send us a private message in whatever kind of help God moved you to support the ministry of Christ Stewards Fellowship.

His Steward,
Sis. Hanny Abas-Namuco

Friends of God - Daily Vacation Bible School 2015


School break here in the Philippines is almost over.  It is our great opportunity to teach free summer classes for children during this time. To be honest, this kind of ministry is one of the hardest event to manage because this would  mean raising budget and searching for volunteers who are willing be a part of this huge work.  To make this Daily Vacation Bible School possible, the church had to work hand in hand using every gifts we have.  This is our second series of DVBS wherein we personally made everything from the lessons, poster, visuals, manuals and activities so as every little details necessary for the whole program.  This way, we were able to cut on budget and having everyone support the work by having them use their God given gifts and talents; as this is what the church is suppose to be - have their gifts complement with one another so that the work of God will flourish.

Voice for the Philippines Youth Camp 2015



We have a great move of the Holy the Spirit during the 3-day camp held from April 2-4, 2015 at Barangay San Isidro, Cuenca Batangas.  Fifty (50) youth delegates joined the said event coming from Christ Stewards Fellowship and Glory Christian Centre.



We may not have the best camp site as our venue, as some of the delegates says, but their camp experience is way too far from what they expected. They have learned so much from the camp and enjoyed every activities.
