A beacon of inspiration; an ignition of the soul’s passion for following the footsteps set before them by none other than Christ Jesus – the best words to describe how the Baccalaureate Service of the graduating Associate in Theology and Maranatha Bible Students transpired yesterday, March 18.
The Baccalaureate Service started with the Sunday School. Two graduating students, Sis. Eleanor Lazaro and Sis. Meriniza Ozaeta, who came all the way from Dubai and Milan, Italy, ministered the Word of God emphasizing on harvesting souls and restoring the lost ones to Christ. While in the Divine Worship, the auditorium was filled with joyous praises as Apostle Arsenio Tan Ferriol delivered the Message of God. The Goodman of the House never tires of constantly encouraging the congregation to offer their lives for God’s mission in the End-Time. He reminded the assembly that a life in Christ is not a life lost and made the graduating students as prime examples.
In the evening, the Recognition Night immediately followed. The MBS and AIT candidates for graduation gathered once more for a night of appreciation for the people who gave their lives in order to fulfill the great mission of God.
The parents of the soon-to-be-graduates were brought up on the stage for the Hood Investiture ceremony which also symbolizes the incoming commencement exercises. Candidates for graduation were awarded for their diligence and dedication to their assigned duties.
These people will be graduating after long years of preparation and will be reaching another milestone in their ministries.
