Suggested Implementing Guidelines & Recommendations

Through bring about a new evangelization through BECs , we believe and recommend the ff:

  1. A systematic formation program (bible training, leadership skils, etc. offered by the different training centers be made available to BEC leaders by:
    1. funding the expenses incurred by the candidates
    2. making the program available to more leaders who have the capacity to train others and not only upon the choice of priest
    3. studying church documents (PCP-II, CCC, CFC, etc.) and many BEC materials
  2. To tap and coordinate work with varied mandated organizations;
  3. Link / network with Church Episcopal Commissions focusing on a particular ministry. Ex. ECBA, ECFL, ECCCE, CLP, etc. and their diocesan offices.
  4. For the priestly training –
    1. For effective evangelizing, we recommend a more strict selection of candidates to the priesthood.
    2. That their seminary formation should take care very well the area of proclamation of the Word of God to make it touch people’s lives (biblical-pastoral)
    3. That they be trained in building and sustaining BECs as agents of renewal in the Church and in society.
