Say No Program – Junior and Senior High School Ministry
Without our Lord Jesus Christ in their lives, our teens will not be able to cope up and fight the clear and present dangers that they face everyday. In Zambales, Pastor Freddie Dela Cruz together with 23 other pastors and volunteer teachers minister to 5,768 students in 11 public high schools once a week. In Bacoor, Pastor Joel Dela Cruz and his team of 21 pastors and volunteer teachers will be able to minister to over 5000 junior and senior high school students before the school year ends in March 2018.
Bro. Mark Pobeda, one of Pastor Joel’s volunteer teachers was able to form three cell groups from the students he is teaching at the City of Bacoor National High School. 30 of the cell group members attend church regularly.
His hardwork and dedication is not in vain as the Lord has promised.

We are able to help them by providing them with the Say No Series materials the first of which is Say No to Premarital Sex. Pastor Joel is also our Hub Manager in this city. As such, he recruits, teaches, trains, deploys and monitors pastors who are involved in public high school ministry. He has deployed pastors and volunteer teachers in the different locations of Bacoor National High School. Statistics show that there are over 20,000 public school students in this city alone.
