Get to know Mayette Ativo-Bueno

Mayette has always had a passion to see local leaders equipped to serve the Lord, and she has been the driving force behind the success of BCCL since its inception. Mayette’s vision, energy and devotion to prayer, together with her gifting in administration and leadership, have been the constants as BCCL has grown from its modest beginnings to its place as a vital equipper of Evangelical leaders in the Bicol region.

Mayette is also our conduit for sending aid to the hurricane ravaged areas of Samar and Leyte where she brings staff, students and alumni to the aid of local churches, demonstrating the tangible presence of God’s Kingdom through BCCL.

Though single when she launched BCCL, Mayette has since become stepmother to five and is even a grandmother already, having married widower Tony Bueno, pastor of Jesus First Christian Ministry.  Together, Mayette and Tony are a dynamic duo of Christian leadership in Albay Province and beyond.

Mayette is ably assisted in the BCCL ministry by Claire Azul, yet another tireless worker for God’s Kingdom in the Bicol region.
