Santiago B. Sameon II, Ed.D.
With the existence of the Midtown church in 1983 and in the succeeding years, with its corresponding numerical increase, came along side the pains of growth. At its commencement, the woes were remedied by the evangelists who were cognizant of the problems. Thereafter, a “Grievance Committee” came into being to address the need.
Over the years, congregational problems balooned, thus the “Guidance and Counseling Ministry” was formed. The ministry is tasked to address doctrinal, social, moral, church affiliation, and conflicting issues, not to mention the family relationship woes of its members. With its formation, along with the cooperation of the brotherhood, the capacity to remedy problems of the congregation is enhanced!
