4/14 Conference Held at Philippine Nazarene College

Aug 29, 2014

La Trinidad, Philippines:  Philippine Nazarene College hosted more than 160 participants August 25 for a 4/14 Window conference titled “A Call to Action.”

The 4/14 Window refers to the demographic group from age 4 to 14 years old when children are the most open and receptive to spiritual and developmental input.

IMG_3892Church of the Nazarene leaders in the Philippines are passionate that God is calling Christians to the 4/14 Window, a new missional focus to radically change the way children are viewed and to respond to their strategic importance and rightful place in His kingdom.

More than a dozen ministry partners came together to focus on this global initiative. La Trinidad Mayor Edna Tabanda was present and joined in the advocacy of reaching young children for Christ.

The conference included plenary sessions focusing on various topics ranging from how God wants Christians to see children, to God’s purpose and design for maintaining integrity within the family.

One of the plenary speakers, Michelle Tolentino, shared that in Manila alone there are an estimated 100,000 child prostitutes. She challenged conference participants to be advocates, working toward building safe communities and continuously empowering children.

“We must intentionally disciple children and continuously care for them,” said Stephen Gualberto, Philippine Micronesia field strategy coordinator.

Those in attendance were encouraged and motivated to engage in the global 4/14 Window movement, starting at home in the Philippines.
