Renan, a former altar boy, accepted the Lord in 1985 through a High School Bible Study about the rapture. Renan and Anna are both Filipino natives who then started attending Calvary Chapel Manila in 1988 under the verse-by-verse teaching of Pastor Roger Scalice. There he met his wife, Anna who served as an usher/Sunday School teacher while Renan also served in the Sunday School. Renan later became a deacon, elder and worship leader.
After 13 years in the IT industry, Renan knew that God called them to be missionaries. He and his family moved in August 2003 to San Miguel Island in Bicol to assist Pastor David Matthews in the ministry. Renan served as an Assistant Pastor and Worship Leader in two planted churches and spent much of his time leading home bible studies, helping in Children's Ministry and assisting in the annual kids/youth camps.
Renan is currently serving as the Lead Pastor of Calvary Lucena Christian Fellowship, a non-profit religious organization working among the city and nearby Barangays in Lucena City, Quezon Province. We are commissioned as a body in promoting the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ for the past 9 years and is continuously reaching the community through weekly Bible studies, prayer, evangelism, medical, and children/youth outreach programs.
