NAB in the Philippines

The NAB had missionaries in the Philippines until 2004. Before our last missionaries left the country, the Bicol Center for Christian Leadership (BCCL) was established under the direction of a national leader. BCCL is a thriving training school based in the city of Legazpi in Albay Province and with ministry extending to other cities and provinces. NAB continues to send teachers to help equip leaders for local churches in the Bicol region.
