Mega-churches and Senior pastors in the Philippines

The Philippines has been one of the world’s hot spots for church growth. Although in the first seventy years after Protestant Christianity reached these islands in 1898 only 5,000 churches were established, in the last twenty-five years a further 22,000 have begun. While the average size of a church in Manila is about 100, a number of mega-churches have sprung up with congregations numbering in the thousands.
The term megachurch is the name given to a cluster of very large, Protestant/Born-Again Christian congregations, that share several distinctive characteristics. Here are some mega-churches that also have its other congregation worldwide:

Jesus Is Lord Church (JIL) is a Pentecostal charismatic movement in the Philippines  headed by founder Bro. Eddie Villanueva. The Jesus Is Lord Church was called the Jesus is Lord Fellowship when Villanueva started it with 15 members in 1978. In 2008, it had 6 million members in 10,000 local congregations in 44 countries. In the Philippines, it reached 4000 barangays in 85 provinces and 1,000 cities. 
Founded: 1978
Total members: 6,000,000

Greenhills Christian Fellowship (GCF) is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, English-speaking megachurch whose main congregation is located at Ortigas. It was a Baptist megachurch founded by David and Patty Jo Yount of Conservative Baptist Association of America in 1978. Dr. Larry Pabiona is the current senior pastor of GCF when Dr. Luis Pantoja passed away in 2010 due to massive heart attack. 
Founded: 1978
Total members: 7,000

Bread of Life Ministries International (BOL) was founded by Rev. Butch L. Conde. It was started in the early 1980's as a half-way house for prostitutes in Olongapo City, until they expanded together with 12 people, including Rev. Conde, to start a new church in Marynoll College (now Miriam College), offered its auditorium to launch the first service gatherings on November 1982, and its church rapidly growth from 120 to 30,000 members overall in the congregations in the Philippines and overseas congregations in Asia, North America, Middle East and Europe. BOL is slightly different from all Christian churches in the country, because the leaders of the church teaches not only on spiritual needs and Heaven's promise, but also they teach intelligence, moral, physical, excellence, nation building and love for country.
Founded: 1982
Total members: 30,000

Christ’s Commission Fellowship (CCF) is a thriving church of approximately 25,000 believers, with worship and bible study centers in major cities in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, plus one in Singapore. The fellowship is composed of and led by lay men and women, actively involved in small groups, in homes, communities, and workplaces. It was started in 1984 by Rev. Peter Tan Chi, as they started as Bible studies in Cainta, Rizal, until they expanded by the businessmen attended the Bibly studies to gather at Asian Institute of Management to launch CCF's first service until they grow into thousands of believers.
Founded: 1984
Total members: 26,000

Victory Christian Fellowship (VCF or Victory)  has 51 churches  in the Philippines, with thirteen in Metro Manila and thirty-eight in various provinces around the country. Rev. Steve Murell is the senior pastor of Victory Christian Fellowship, as well as being overall president of the Every Nation group of ministries. As of 2008, more than 34,000 people attend the worship services in Victory in Metro Manila alone. Victory has local congregations in the Philippines. Also, attended by some TV personalities and political icons.
Founded: 1985
Total members: 34,500

Day by Day Christian Ministries (DBD) was founded on June 6, 1985 in RiyadhSaudi Arabia as a small fellowship of OFWs. But the start of the growth of the organization was in 1990s, when they had the organization set foot in the Philippines. Currently the organization is still doing missions within the Philippines and in Arab countries. The senior pastor is Ptr. Ed Lapiz.
Founded: 1985
Total members: Not counted members

Other mega-churches are
Word of Hope Christian Family Church
Cathedral of Praise
Lord of the Nations Ministries
Word for the World Christian Fellowship
World International Ministries
New Life Christian Center
  • Mega churches are mega churches because of who the leaders are, the vision they cast before their members and their ability to make spirituality real to their members.
  • but Mega-Church will never be much bigger unless Small Group is emphasized so that the fellowship of the Brethren will remain even though you are big enough.
  • Healthy churches grow its natural as they take care of their members for their spiritual growth.

      Ang True Church ay hindi naman padamihan ng miyembro kundi kung paano ipinapangaral ng pastor ang tunay na ebanghelyo ni Cristo, ang tagumpay ng church ay hindi nasusukat sa dami ng naniniwala dito kundi kung paano naginging tapat sa pangangaral ng Ebanghelyo ang pastor

    4. A former CCF member,

      Ganun din sa CCF namimirata ng members at karamihan galing Bread of Life sa Crossroad 77 sa Mother Ignacia QC, si Bong Saquing nga dating pastor ng Bread of Life ngayon nagtuturo na dun sa malaki silang kapilya sa C5, halatang may kinalaman sila na magka-anomalya sa BOL na sabit si Saquing dito para lumaki ang CCF. Ngayon, isang ka-Dgroup ko dati mga dating taga BOL na naghihikayat sila na lahat ng mga taga BOL ay lumipat na sa CCF kasi andito na si Pastor Bong, eh ano ngayon? hoy impyerno ka parin brother dahil mababaw ang faith mo! Porket dati nilang pastor susundan nila dahil daw laging masaya ang service puro joke nawawala na yung God's presence sa mga services ng CCF. BOL Pastor Butch Conde is better than Peter Tanchi and I saw some former CCF members in BOL realizing their right stand, kaya kayo magising na kayo sa katotohanan!

      JIL at Bread of Life lang ang Born-again Christian Church sa Pilipinas na lumaki, dumami ang miyembro ng kusa at talagang pinagpala ng Diyos

      Dun sa nag-comment about Victory, kaya pala in just one year may 10,000+ new members sila, I dont think so, at sa CCF I can't believe na ganun din sila, hanga pa naman ako sa ministry na yan.

      Actually, kaya kasi lumaki yang mga simbahan na yan dahil sa dalawang rason: Malakas ang faith ng leadership and members, at malakas ang evangelistic strategy nila sa mga non-Christian. Please be thankful nalang dahil maraming tao na ang nakakakilala sa Panginoon, that's the main purpose of church growth.

    6. Hindi-nagpakilalaAgosto 5, 2014 ng 1:00 AM

      Hinde po totoo that Victory grows because of proselytizing. That's not definitely not true. The heartbeat of our church is reaching out the lost. If there are Christians from other church attending our church, we welcome them but we tell them to go back to their churches if God's calling is for them to stay there. Don't judge too quickly if you are all Christians.

  2. hi.. bat wla ang jesus miracle crusade??

    Mga Tugon
    1. is Jesus miracle crusade IS part of Philippine council of evangelical churches? one of the criteria to be part of the council is that the church must BE a bible believing CHRIST centered church. to clarify it clearly the church must believe that THEIR IS one GOD eternally existing in 3 person (faTHER,SON AND SPIRIT)

    2. Jesus Miracle Crusade is already a well-established church that is why it's not included. The churches on this list with the exception of JIL only have few churches.

    3. VERY WRONG! Jesus Miracle Crusade is a non-trinitarian, that means they only believe in Jesus not the God the Father nor the Holy Spirit that's why they are not belong to Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches, unlinke JIL, BOL and other major churches in the Philippines are belong to that group because they believe in the TRINITY. Sorry Miracle Crusade...

  4. Bread of life celebrated last sunday of its 29th year as a church... were truly blessed, Bro. Butch Conde teaches on how to motivate ourselves as a Christians in this generation, their theme is "The flat world" and how should we Christians then live? a truly blessed God's message!

      Naniniwala ang BOL na kapag ang tao ay tunay na naghahangad sa Diyos, gagawin niya ang lahat at tatahakin maging ang mahirap na landas, makatagpo niya lamang ang Panginoon. Mas kalugud-lugod yung may naabot ang isang tao dahilan sa meron siyang isinakripisyo kaysa sa wala. Kaya hirap kang makahanap ng online preachings galing BOL. Isa pa ay nag-iingat sa media ang BOL. Ayaw ng BOL na mabahiran ng dumi ng pulitika, negosyo tsismis at katuwaan ang mga bagay spiritwal. At ayaw nilang may mga madapa sa mensaheng maaaring mapakinggan galing BOL ngunit ay hindi naman lubos na nauunawaan ang konteksto ng mensahe.

    3. Amen to that, I've been visiting BOL for several sundays na at gusto ko context nila kung paano nila naiinternalize of Word of God and I think I could church-hop there, sa pagkakaalam ko dati sa ABS-CBN may program sila until nung si Pastor Bong Saquing (now in Christ Commission Fellowshp or CCF) may preaching materials sya na 'hoax' at tinamaan ng husto ang PH gov't so kinansel ng BOL yung program nila, since then there's still have no livestream because of that. Even though may mga examples sila sa preaching about yung mga current events na bad news sa bansa kaya sa tingin bakit sila nag-iingat sa media. God bless po sa inyo

    1 corinthians 1:12-13 "....One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas[a]”; still another, “I follow Christ.”Is Christ divided?...."- Paul. it seems like this describes modern churches is far from the conviction of paul and 1st century church. as paul said in Eph. 4:4-6 "There is one body and one Spirit —just as you were called to one hope when you were called — one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." "...Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior."- Eph. 5:23

    Mga Tugon
    1. are u from bob amigo's group so u hav to attack this church? FYI too, needed to clarify and so-called "exodus of its key pastors and elders" are false.. Pastor Butch Conde leaved his position as senior pastor and became pastor emeritus of bread and Pastor Noel Tan of BOL Makati took over the leadership, as well as the elders needed to retire but still they're belong to BOL. (pls read wikipedia) 5000? maybe thats in a recent years because most of the people are Pastor Bong Saquing's (now in CCF) follower so they transfer all to CCF Ortigas, but this time has maybe in 10k people (growing again). I think that's bob amigo's fault why BOL is now like this in a past year. I'm not a regular member of bread, still connected with Pastor Bong & CCF

  13. Hindi-nagpakilalaAbril 25, 2013 ng 9:37 AM

    Why are you so concerned with numbers? Jesus only chose 12 disciples close to Him,one of which wasn't even a true one.Padamihan ba ng bilang ng members Ito? Or we should be concerned about the quality of life we live and witness to the lost if truly we are ever Christians.The one who commented about BOL maybe was from BOL before,or have heard from someone else,but doesn't know the facts and is just bitter that's why he left.Or maybe ,he's not ever a true BOL member at all in the first place.If your heart is not for the church,then leave that church.They don't need you there.

It is kind of devil's action para yung mga unbelievers ay hindi na maniniwala kay Kristo and that's it. And plase pray for all churches in the country and to spread the salvation. yun lang po salamat!

      this is happening already between Bread of Life and CCF. Laking Bread of Life ako at lumipat ng CCF pero bumalik ako sa Bread, why? there's a problem about discipling strategy about getting big number of people before the year 2020 so that they'll claim to be the "fastest-growing" church in the country, wala pong problema dun pero fastest-growing na sila sa lagay na yun at laging prosperity gospel ang tinuturo ng CCF which ay ayaw ng Bread of Life na ituro ang prosperity gospel. And my big reason for going back to Bread is because may sarili sila DNA on how to share Christ in different doctrines na ginaya naman ng CCF pero ang Bread tinanggal ito lately dahil nagkamali na sila ng direksyon kaya bumalik sila sa Basic Christianity strategy, now CCF remains on that Bread's old strategy, not because Bong Saquing is there, because they practice Western discipling too. No offense to all CCFers pero ito po ang totoo, let the truth prevail.

PLEASE LET US STOP THESE NEGATIVE COMMENTS because it cannot edify the Body of Christ here in the Philippines. Magkaisa po tayu sa ating mission that is to win souls and make disciples. WE ARE ONE BODY, WE BELIEVED IN ONE LORD. LET OUR SMALL DIFFERENCES will not cause harm to our relationship to each other.

  28. i came from bread of life then nung nagpunta ako ny US i attended BOL in NY maganda nman ang turo dun but somehow i felt malayo ako sa Lord coz even they teach about the bible mostly ang teachings about excellence, health, Rizal , our coutry so dun napupunta focus ko parang nka focus ako sa sarili ko palagi, im not saying na mali teachings nila but i felt di ako na go grow maybe di para sakin un ganung teachings, i dont know ,but when tragedy hit on me , hinahanap ko ang basic teachings about God , so i left went to assemblies of God for a while, gusto ko kasi un meron altar call, at BOL they dont usually do altar call. then i moved to las vegas and attending JIL , in JIL i felt i started at the basics all about God . no Rizal , not so much on current events its mostly bible based, what i like about JIL is the people, the pastor very approachable, people are humble and treat as family, in BOL NY they are also nice but i feel more comfortable with my friends in JIL , i have to admit the pastor in JIL is approachable. i dont judge pastor in BOL, maybe the problem lies within me during that time thats why i dont feel they are appeochable, but when it comes to teaching the best teachings that i like is CCF , i listen to their teachings at youtube, i like Peter tan chi and bong Saquing its bible base but always with practical applcations. My advise is pray kung saan church kayo , coz iba iba ang puso natin and our faith level so pray and ask God to bring you to the right one where you could grow. hopefully when i go home to Philippines i will go CCF.God bless

    Mga Tugon
    1. This is what our problem as a believer these days, lagi kasi tayo nakatingin sa pastor o sa church mismo. They have different teachings on these groups, if you want on basics on Scriptures, that's JIL, if you want to give your life a living sacrifice and in faith like what there teaching excellence, wellness and Biblical nationalism, go to Bread of Life. And if your struggling in faith and take some time on spiritual intimacy, go to CCF, iba-iba kasi ang calling ng mga churches na yan, depende na talaga sa tao yan kung saan sila magio-grow.

      Kaya inollow ng Lord na maraming churches at iba iba ang pag-internalize ng Word of God dahil inihanda Nya ito sa mga tao kung saan sila mago-grow spiritually. Kaya the best advise is to pray and follow your heart.

  29. so pray , you can just go to church bec this person says this says that, mas magaling pastor dito , but ask God coz he knows your heart , maybe you will grow more in BOL or maybe in CCF Or JIL. You will know and dont just beleive what your pastor says always check kung naaayon sa scriptures turo nila.
