Cebu students (2).jpg

The central Philippines province of Cebu is one of the most developed provinces in the Philippines with Metro Cebu being the second largest metropolitan area in the Philippines (after Metro Manila) and Cebu City as the main center of commerce, trade, education and industry in the Visayas. In a decade it has transformed into a global hub for shipping, furniture-making, tourism, business processing services, and heavy industry. Well over 3,000,000 souls reside in this region.

The church in Cebu proper and its surrounding islands is alive and active, but was lacking a formal way to train preachers in its region of the country. That is until May 2018, when Bear Valley Bible Institute - Philippines began classes. Under the leadership of Director, Neil Emperado students complete one course per month, putting them on track to complete the entire Bear Valley curriculum in four years.
