Arnel Piliin appointed as Philippines-Micronesia FSC
Arnel Piliin has been appointed the new field strategy coordinator for Philippines-Micronesia. He will succeed Stephen Gualberto, who has served in the role since 2011.
Piliin has served as the district superintendent of the Metro Manila District since 2010 and as the senior pastor of the New Hope Church in San Jose, Antipolo City, Philippines, since 2011.
He has also been a member of the General Board of the Church of the Nazarene and a member of the Asia-Pacific Regional Advisory Council. Piliin will assume his role as FSC on 1 October 2020.
"Congratulations to our newly appointed Field Strategy Coordinator Philippine-Micronesia, Rev. Arnel L. Piliin," wrote Ryan Cardinal, district secretary for Metro Manila. "May the Lord lead you to greater heights and may He sustain you with wisdom! 'May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.'"
Piliin and his wife, Inocencia Piliin, will become global missionaries on 1 August 2020 and will begin working closely with the region, Gualberto, and the field in preparation for the transition.
"Rev. Piliin’s willingness and availability for this leadership position is greatly appreciated," Gualberto said. "His leadership experiences as pastor, district superintendent, and other leadership roles in the region and global church prepare and equip him for this role. I believe God will use him and his wife, Inocencia, mightily for his glory and honor, and to further His Kingdom. Let us support and pray for the Piliins as they transition to this new assignment."
A graduate of Visayan Nazarene Bible College, Arnel and Inocencia have three children: daughters Arscent and Rachel Piliin and a son, Arnel John Piliin.
