Summer Outreaches


By Pastor Glem Melo

We thank the Lord for using our team during the summer.

  1. We made more than 20 new friends through tri-weekly outreaches in parks.
  2. The MBB family that we have been discipling is regularly meeting and sharing the gospel to 4 M families and 11 M individuals.

Please pray as we continue spending time and meeting with our new friends.  May the Holy Spirit cause them to be more and more open to hearing and learning the gospel of Christ.

 2018-08-25 Yousefi FamPlease pray for our ministry to an M people group.

May the Lord continue to (1) give us more friends among them, (2) provide more opportunities for us to share His love and gospel to them, and (3) use the ministry of His word to give them the saving knowledge of Christ.

Please pray for our plan to start a Bible study for high school students.


May the Lord use the new campus ministry team that we are forming to reach many students with the love and the gospel of Christ.

Please pray for our house church planting mission.

May the Lord give us two more families in the group so we can begin to plant our second house church.

Pastor Glem @ Trinity


By Pastor Glem Melo

38783107_10217780133120135_896594931508838400_nThis week, as a new Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) student (teaching and preaching concentration), I went to the New Students Orientation (2 days for international students) and started attending classes at Trinity International University / Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

As I was listening to Dr. Wayne Johnson, Associate Dean of TEDS and my professor for Biblical Theology and Interpretation, during the orientation, I was thinking, “How did I get here?”  Because I am just a poor probinsyano and former drug addict from a poor province of the Philippines.

39580667_10217873665458385_2917669647513812992_nThen I thought, “What am I doing?”  Because I do not have the funds to pay for my tuition.  And I also feared that I may not be able to make it academically in this world-renowned and greatly esteemed (and rightly so) institution.

But, as I always do…  I just keep on keeping on.  The goal: for me to study and get equipped to train and mentor pastors and church planters for unreached people groups worldwide.

Please pray for me.  More than ever, I need prayer.

Yanan @ Moody


By Pastor Glem Melo

Today, we moved Yanan to Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, Illinois. He will take up the 5-year BA/MA Pastoral Studies program.  His Practical Christian Ministry will be with our church planting team in Devon/Little India (West Ridge/West Rogers Park). Please include him in your prayers.

“Moody is driven by the belief that people committed to living and declaring the Word of God can actually change the world. Since our founding by D.L. Moody in 1886, Moody Bible Institute has been committed to equipping people across the globe, cultures and generations to take the next step toward spiritual maturity.”

Praise the Lord!

Soccer Camp 2018


By Pastor Glem Melo

From July 18 to August 8, our local church family, Park Community Church (South Rogers Park location, Chicago, IL, U.S.A.), held a free Soccer Camp for the kids in our neighborhood.  All the kids, parents, and other loved-ones had great fun.  We met many individuals and families of various races and ethnicities, and made significant friendship connections with them.  Most importantly, the Gospel was shared and Bibles were given to the children.  Praise the Lord!

Please pray that the Lord will continue to sustain and bless our friendship building, prayer, evangelism, disciple-making, and church planting mission to the nations in the Northside of Chicago.
