Evangelization Apostolate

Evangelization refers to the development and implementation of the various Encounter Programs and Life in the Spirit Seminars of the BLD Community, particularly of individual BLD Districts, both for adults and youth. Evangelization aids Mission in conducting and monitoring such Encounter Programs and Life in the Spirit Seminars in outreaches and parish-assisted projects.

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  (Mt 28:19-20)

The Evangelization Apostolate consists of the following Ministries:

Marriage Encounter Ministry

“’For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’  So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Mk 10:7-9)

The Marriage Life Ministry ensures that the conduct and implementation of the Marriage Encounter Weekends, along with the Encounter class reunions, are according to the prescribed standards and approved guidelines of the BLD Covenant Community.

Praise Ministry

“It was the duty of the trumpeters and singers to make themselves heard in unison in praise and thanksgiving to the Lord, and when the song was raised, with trumpets and cymbals and other musical instruments, in praise to the Lord, ‘For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever’, the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud,” (2Chr 5:13)

The Praise Ministry is committed to the purpose, vision, and mission of the BLD Covenant Community. All members recognize that as individuals and as a Ministry, they serve as a part of the BLD body for the greater glory of God.

The Praise Ministry is comprised of a group of instrumentalists and singers, with the primary function of drawing down the overpowering presence of God in every gathering of God’s people through songs.  It is a Ministry truly working together to develop each other’s musical gifts, growing and maturing in faith and love to the Lord, where together with Worship Leaders enable the congregation to fully participate in the experience of praise and worship through music and song. It ultimately helps the Community attain its mission of renewing and strengthening our Christian faith through worship, prayers and songs.
