Today I am starting a simple series on getting to know the ministers that we hear and see most often. The goal of this series is to allow people a small glimpse in the life of a minister that they may have a heard about from other believers or watched on TV shows like The 700 Club Asia.
To jumpstart this series will be Pastor Hiram Pangilinan of Church So Blessed.
Who are you? Please Introduce yourself. “Hi! I’m Hiram Pangilinan.”
What is your church’s/organization’s name and your title there? “I’m the senior pastor of Church So Blessed.”
Please give us a brief testimony of how you met Jesus.“I got to know my need for Jesus and eventually surrendered my life to Him through the witness of a classmate who shared with me the 4 Spiritual Laws. I was then a freshman in college, in 1985.”
What else do you do? “I am also a book author, and have more than a dozen titles now under my name.”
What are your regular spiritual disciplines? Can you provide a picture of how you do it? “I have my devotions in the morning, immediately after waking up. I read my hard-copy Bible with a pen and a highlighter in hand. I read it simultaneously with an audio Bible playing, and wait for insights from Holy Spirit, that I write in the Bible margin.”
What is/are your Bible Study tool/s? “I have different Bible study tools: study Bibles, commentaries, books on theology, inspiration, spiritual disciplines, etc. I also enjoy the apps of Olive Tree and YouVersion.”
