SFC ICON ’09 – Cebu

Seven thousand single men and women converged in Cebu last February 20-22, 2009 for the 16th Singles for Christ International Conference (ICon).   Themed “Icon,” the conference saw delegates from all over the Philippines and the world assembled together to proclaim Jesus Christ as the Icon of Singles for Christ, and that the way to move forward was only IN CHRIST.   Set in the parking lot of SM City Cebu, the event was a wonderful opportunity to evangelize and show the world what it means to love Christ, as mall shoppers were made privy to the worship and teachings of the Singles for Christ community courtesy of wide-screens set in strategic areas in the venue.  Thousands of singles were seen around the mall as well during conference breaks, all donned in their conviction shirts bearing Jesus as their Icon.

I was just blessed to attend this conference and it was my first time to visit Cebu. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to serve my community in my little way. That weekend, God gave me the opportunity to shoot and document the conference upclose. Thanks to our SCOM head, Grace Quilaquil for the pass. I had to choose from all the pictures I took to make sure I can show some of the highlights that happened during that glorious weekend.

Here are some of the powerful testimonies shown during the first night.



JESUS is the ICON!
