The Southern Mindanao Bible College held its 18th commencement last April 1st at the Le Reve Resort in Makilala, Cotabato. Five young men were awarded their diplomas. Brother Eusebio Tanicala was the commencement speaker.
This preacher training school was initiated by the late brother Magno Bruno and the Antonio Balagot family donated the half hectare site at Kisante, Makilala. In appreciation for the efforts of the late brother Bruno, the board of trustees of the school chaired by Dr. Conrado Evangelista made a resolution that publicly recognized this vision and a plaque of recognition was given to the family of brother Magno Bruno represented by Sharon, Magno’s daughter.
Congregations and individual members in the Cotabato and Davao provinces support the students. The downtown congregation in Kabacan operates the school and also provide travel expenses of teachers.
