• Name: Marayag Evangelical Church
  • Pastor: Ptr. Gideon Albarico
  • Location:  Panaon Island, Philippines

Sometime in 1992, for doctrinal reason, a sizeable group of church members separated from the Marayag UCCP Church to form their own congregation. Soon after, Marayag Evangelical Church became an affiliate church of BUCCI with Pastor Armando Jacalan as its first assigned church worker. The church started in a small nipa hut chapel, and by God’s grace and provision, it has grown into a vibrant congregation with a church building and parsonage where worship services are being held. Marayag Evangelical Church currently has 73 members and is shepherded by Pastor Gideon Albarico. Aside from their weekly services, Bible studies and cottage prayer meetings, the church has already two outreaches in Barangays Habay and Kahayag. In line with the BUCCI 2020 vision and the desire to reach the whole municipality of San Francisco, the church aims to establish five more outreaches. Let us continue to pray for more members who are committed and passionate to know and share Christ to others.
