Message from the Former Interim Pastoral Leader of MCC Philippines, Pastor Lino Tan Lee on the Ordination of Rev. Elder Regen R. Luna

Pastor Lino Tan Lee, Interim Pastoral Leader MCCPhilippines

A man full of wisdom, an influential leader, an enthusiastic preacher.  These are, to name a few, the qualities that we look for in a pastor or a church leader.  But these qualities are not enough to describe Pastor Regen Luna.

A man with conviction, a good musician, a down-to-earth person with a kind heart and firm decision with Bible as his expertise, Pastor Regen got what it takes to become a full-pledge pastor.

During his short term as IPL of MCC Philippines, he has proven his self through his unique way of leadership.  With him as the worship leader, one would really feel the presence of the Holy Spirit working during fellowship.  With his preaching and words of wisdom during homily, the listener would not only be enlightened but also become well educated with the words of God, which is a factor to strengthen ones faith.

In order to achieve my deepest respect, he has demonstrated outstanding leadership and maintained a clear sense of purpose.  It is for these reasons that I offer high recommendations for Pastor Regen Luna without reservation.  His drive and abilities will truly be an asset to the church.

In Christ I remain,

Pastor Lino Tan Lee

Interim Pastoral Leader, MCC Philippines

Ptr. Regen Luna invited to speak at MCC Philippines’ Retreat

Ptr. Regen prays for the new Board of Directors of MCC Philippines at the Retreat in Pansol, Laguna, Philippines.

Ptr. Regen Luna was invited to speak at the retreat of the Metropolitan Community Church Philippines last September 25 and 26 in Pansol, Laguna.  His topic was “Homosexuality is not a sin and not a sickness”.  The talk was well received by the leaders and the participants.  It was also highlighted by group reports about the different verses used by other churches to attack homosexuals and also an open forum where Pastor Regen answered the questions about the rainbow colors, the symbol of the cross, the signing of the cross, the use of images in worship, ecumenism, and the Holy Kiss of peace.

The retreat will have a follow-through activity this coming November.  The leaders and members of MCC Philippines extends their congratulatory message for Pastor Regen on the official announcement of H.E. Rev. Bishop David Strong on his appointment as local pastor for CUC and candidate for ordination as an Elder in Full connection with the denomination.  God is doing marvelous works.  Praise God!!!
