KINGFISHER PHILIPPINES

Kingfisher Network was launched in India in 2010, with churches now in and round Delhi, and stretching up to the northern boarders. In 2012, a Bible Training School was launched in Harridwar, in the heart of Hinduism in the north of India. This school attracted students from far and wide, with the emphasis on Bible training and practical experience. As a result of this, a church was launched – the only one in Harridwar – and has since grown to 1500 people, all converts from Hinduism.

In 2016 James visited some of our churches in India for a Leadership Conference and was able to interview a few of the pastors that lead Kingfisher Churches in India so we get to hear directly from them about what God is doing in their churches!

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.
