This year’s speakers are former APTS faculty and missionaries in the Philippines. Beginning their missionary life in 1979 to 2006, they engaged in various ministries, including evangelism and church planting among mountain tribal groups and theological education here at the APTS campus. In those 27 years, they developed a strong sense of “Mission in the Spirit” both practically and theoretically.
