Since 1974, ACTION Philippines missionaries have been ministering among the poor in and around Metro Manila. Today, ACTION’s team in the Philippines is composed of more than 40 foreign missionaries from 10 different countries partnering with more than 30 local ministry workers and numerous Filipino volunteers. From our Metro Manila roots, ACTION’s team has branched out to needy communities in Antipolo City, Silang Cavite, Cebu City, Olongapo City, Malaybalay, and Iloilo.

Ministries of ACTION Philippines include:

  • Ministry to Children-in-Crisis
Support A Child Save A Future is a ministry targeting the street children of Metro Manila and other key cities nationwide. We reach children through hands-on ministry and by networking with churches around the country. The ministries of Street Impact Team (SITeam) include feeding programs, tutoring out of school youth, and street outreaches. Dave & Becky Majam lead the ministry and are assisted by Al & Sonie Tadeo.

HONEST HANDS' primary focus is discipling former street boys and school dropouts. Each student is taught the Bible with an emphasis on character development and practical Christian living. The program is led by Greg & Sarah Seiling.

BRAND NEW DAY (BND) is a ministry to children-in-crisis in and around Silang, Cavite. Besides providing residential care, BND operates a drop-in center for street kids and offers tutoring to out of school youth. The ministry is co-led by Erin Johnson and Krista Laroza. Matt & Becki Beack also work with children at Brand New Day.

Greg & Sarah Seiling provide leadership for Working Hands. Mike & Tracy Burr are also working with the Working Hands ministry.
