SPAC Congratulates Pr. Joel Escobidal On His Ordination

South Philippine Adventist College  rejoices over the ordination of one its longest serving workers in the campus, Pr. Joel Zacharias Escobidal, which was held in Digos SDA Center Church on September 5, 2020. It came as a momentous and special experience for him as he was the only candidate receiving the rite of ordination that day with select friends and guests in attendance. This event was graced with the presence of no less than the President of South Philippine Union Conference, Pastor/Elder Roger Caderma, as its speaker. Elder Caderma pounded on the importance of servanthood leadership whose highest agendum is to serve and be faithful to Jesus Christ.  Accompanying Elder Roger Caderma were also officers from SPUC, namely  Pastor Danielo Palomares, SPUC Secretary; Pastor Alex Necesario, Ministerial Secretary; Pastor Rudy G. Jimenez, Stewardship/Legal and Trust Director. They were also joined by their supportive wives.  Representing Davao Mission was Pastor Seth Suan, Ministerial Secretary, who likewise took part in the presentation of candidate and his family.

Teary eyed, Pr. Joel Escobidal on his closing remarks said that his ordination is a “testimony of God’s saving grace.”  The whole family of Pr. Escobidal joined him in profound gratitude to those Pastors and friends who were instrumental in seeing God’s  calling for him despite the odds he went through that almost cost his religious life.

Godspeed, Pastor Joel Escobidal!
