About The Philippines

The Republic of the Philippines is a collection of around 7,641 islands that re grouped into three main geographical divisions: Luzon in the north, Vasayas and Mindanao in the south. Situated in the western Pacific Ocean, the Philippines has a population of approximately 100 million people, with a further 10 million Filipinos living overseas.

The  Philippines claims to the the only Christian nation in Asia, with Roman Catholicism accounting for more than 86% of the population. 6% belong to various nationalised Christian cults and a further 2% belong to well over 100 Protestant denominations.

Our Story

Kingfisher launched in the Philippines in 2016, with a meeting with local leaders arranged by Norlie Bulacan, our UK Coordinator for the Philippines. As a result of that time together, Kingfisher’s leadership materials were launched with a group of 30 pastors in the Rio Chico area in the north, near the Sierra Madre mountains. Led by Pastor Noel Delfin, who was commissioned as our National Director in The Philippines in 2017, this group of pastors and leaders have now completed the course and were graduated at a ceremony in Rio Chico in 2017.

Missions and Projects

The 2016 Harvest Appeal  focused on the Dumagat Tribe, located in the Sierra Madre mountains. Poor and isolated, this tribe is coming to know Jesus Christ. We were able to provide both educational materials for the little school house, a computer and generator, and ginger seeds for the adults to plant.

In 2017, many of the Dumagat were baptised baptised as a result of having come to faith in Jesus Christ.
