Mabuhay! (Welcome!)

We are the Ziss Family to The Philippines, Reaching  Southeast Asia For Christ!  The Lord first put the Philippines on our heart in 2016 on a mission trip to teach discipleship to over 300+ pastors and their wives.  We then continued on other trips for Focal Point, a training with small groups of Filipino pastors to implement 1 on 1 discipleship in their local churches and encourage them to continue making disciples.  From 2017-2019 God kept confirming our call, and in June of 2019 we took our family on a vision tour for 2 months to our mission field.  This trip would solidify our call to the Philippines seeing the need to plant a strong local church, to share the gospel, and to make biblical disciples with the Filipino people.  We completed our deputation during the Covid-19 pandemic in just 22 months, and God allowed us to be fully funded to arrive on the field to Mindanao in November of 2021.  We began Bible studies immediately upon arrival, and the 1st week of January 2022 we began holding regular Sunday morning classes and worship service.  We have since expanded to midweek services and also incorporated the Freedom Baptist Church of Tagum City.  We purchased land and continue to see the plans we prayed about come together as the property and church building continue to develop.  As our ministry grows, so do our goals and the need for continued financial and prayerful support.  Many of you helped us raise the funds to complete our church building, and we began holding services there in August of 2023.  If you are looking for missionaries that will do what they say, and do what they pray, then you want to be a part of the work the Lord is doing with us in Mindanao.  We would love YOU to join us and encourage you to contact us with any questions or to get more updates from the field.  

Reaching the world for Jesus Christ 1 relationship at a time.
