In 1994, an outreach of a church started as Hope in Christ Fellowship, a “Chapel Hour” of Hope Academy in Grand Valley Subdivision, Angono Rizal. This led to a regular Sunday Service, recognized as church by its mother church named Touch Community Fellowship after two years. It was composed of two pastors with maximum of fifteen members who are mostly students of the said school. It continued to grow and became a self-sustaining church as Forerunners of Christ Ministries, recognizing its member’s role as Christians. This church continued its ministries in Angono, Rizal, focusing on the youth and children of the community including its outreach ministries in Cainta, Rizal.
A time to move on to another location was revealed to the church after five years. The church was faithful to God’s provision and decided to rent a place for the regular Sunday Service initially in Montevista, Cainta, Rizal and another decision to transfer to Sampalucan, Cainta after three months. A community church was formed and stayed in place for seven months.
Year 2001 came and exactly during the first Sunday of December when a place prepared by the Lord for the church was used and called as Glendale Christian Fellowship. It has been a prayer of its members to have a place of its own or at least be able to use a place without a rent.
God is faithful to His children as GCF claimed His promises from that year onwards. Everyone is a witness of His love and goodness for the church from the maturity of its workers up to the blessings that the church outreaches experience.
As the church continued to grow, we are expressing our gratitude for God’s love by reaching out to others, allowing them to experience God’s faithfulness through us. The church is named as Reaching Out Christian Ministry, Inc. in 2008.
