Youth Mobilization

How the Vision for the Youth started

youth-mobilizationIt began in July 2008 with a visit to when a team of CWTP missionaries visited the University of Rizal System (URS) in Montalban, Rizal. It was a new relatively new campus built by the local government that at that time held a student population of over 1,500 college students. Majority of the population were taking up Business and Education course studies. The survey revealed that of the total student population, 70-80% of the students belong to the poorest of the poor families. The campus is surrounded by different relocation housing areas for the poor.

For three (3) years of campus work of the CWTP missionary team, not less than 1,500 were evangelized through Medical & Dental Missions, Social Fellowships, One-on-One Evangelism, Classroom Evangelism, Small Group Bible Studies. Later, we had discipled and trained 45 Student Leaders on how to share the gospel using different tools like “the Bridge” illustration, the “Four Spiritual Laws” and on how to lead Small Group Bible Studies. Since that time, we also have provided educational scholarships to 12 deserving students coming from the area.
