BRIEF HISTORY
The idea of a having a Christian ministry in the current compound of BDC goes as far back as when Mr Kamol Harichaikul was still alive and heading the Harichaikul family.Elder Kamol Harichaikul was the belated husband of Leah and father of Warunee, Billy and Paul. He was also the elder brother of Eld Chalo.
Way back to 1975, the Harichaikul family was the only Lahu family living in Namlad, one of the many Buddhist villages in Chiangrai. Prayer meetings were initiated and subsequently, more relatives joined in and stayed under the same roof.
In 1997, after the home-going of Elder Kamol, his youngest brother Elder Chalo took the lead and continued the ministry to serve the Lord in the family.
In 1998, Eld Chalo quitted his secular job and devoted himself to the ministry - starting off with daily family devotion, Bible Study class, Lahu language class and evangelism work to the red Lahu villages.
That same year, the Hong Kong Missionary Baptist Church (HKMBC) visited the ministry and thereafter, helped by providing financial support. This ministry was named "Moses Life Christian Students Centre" (MLCSC).
In 2000, financial support from HKMBC was cut off. But by the grace of God, Eld Chalo still continued on with the ministry and more children came to stay.
In 2001, two Korean missionary couples built two hostel buildings for Eld Chalo and the children of the hostel ministry to stay. This was their token of appreciation to Eld Chalo for teaching & interpreting for them the Lahu language for two years .
Between 2002-2004, various mission awareness teams from Singapore came to visit and were encouraged as well.
Subsequently, the ministry was registered as Bethel Development Centre in 2004 with Eld Chalo's desire to follow the Bible-Presbyterian order of worship and teachings from the Word of God.
By January 2005, Calvary Pandan B-P Church officially adopted BDC as one of her overseas mission stations. Since then, Calvary Pandan BP Church has been giving full support to the children hostel ministry in BDC.
In the year 2006, Warunee graduated from Far Eastern Bible College, Singapore and went back to serve full time in BDC.
In the year 2010, Billy also graduated from FEBC and went back to serve full time in BDC as well.
On the 10th of February 2011, the Bible College (BBC) began her first semester in BDC, led by Billy.
Finally, Paul also graduated from FEBC in 2012 and returning to serve full time in BDC as well.
On 30th October 2013, Elder Chalo was called home to be with the Lord.
Truly, we can see the grace of God in His providential care for His ministry in BDC.
Glory be to God the Father, Christ Jesus His Son and the Holy Ghost. Amen.

BRIEF HISTORY.

The ministry site was purchased as the residence of Rev. Elyakin Phang but has been solely used for ministry purposes.

Rev. Elyakin Phang and Peter found out about FEBC in 1980 when Rev. Dr Timothy Tow visited Siantan, in the northern part of Pontianak. Subseqently in 2000, Dr. Tow started the Borneo Missions Conference. Through CMS, the ministry was adopted as missions station of Calvary Pandan BPC.

In 2002 , Peter & Pipit enrolled in FEBC with Ajin following 6 months later. They completed their studies in 2005 and returned to Pontianak.

In December 2005, the 7th Borneo Missions Conference for held for the first time in Pontianak and the church was blessed with the setting up of the inhouse Bible College, providing theological education in January 2006.

At the end of 2009, Ajin started the Sunday School ministry in Siantan.

We have 3 preachers ministering every Lord's Day in Hanura (40-60 adults) and Siantan (10 adults).

The Sunday Schools have 12 teachers serving in 3 places:

Hanura Permai (7 am - 25 children, 10 am - 20 children)

Sungai Raya (8 am - 15 children)

Siantan (7 am - 30 children, 4 pm - 30 children)

There are 3 groups of Bible Study, 2 in Bahasa and 1 group in Hakka, running each Sunday. The Bible Study in Siantan happens on Friday nights. Each group consists of 15 students. Evangelism and visitation is on Saturdays. The ladies' fellowship is on the 4th Friday of the month with about 20 ladies. Tuesday night prayer meetings usually see around 20 members turning up.

There are currently 2 full time students at the inhouse Bible College and FEBC's lecture notes are used for teaching.

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour in not in vain in the Lord." (1 corinthians 15:58)



Preacher Ling came to know Bible Presbyterian Church when Rev Peter Wong from Brunei Reform Church came to visit him in 1999. At that he has been serving the Lord for 17 years. In a year's time, he was convinced to join Bible Presbyterian Church after knowing that it has a sound doctrine. In January 2001, we started Calvary Sibu Bible Presbyerian Church in Sibu, ministering to the chinese community.

Since then, Rev Lee Kim Shong from Calvary Jaya Bible Presbyterian Fellowship come to visit us every year to encourage us. In 2007, while attending 7th Borneo Mission Conference in Batam, we came to know Julie Wong from CPBPC, she was keen to help the Sunday School ministry in Sibu. From 2008 onward, Calvary Pandan Mission team visits us every year to hold VBS and youth meeting, they help us a lot and we are blessed by their ministry.

"For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many".  Mark10:45

 

Aim of Ministry – to coordinate and optimize resources among the various ministries and fellowship groups and to create mission awareness in the Church.  

 

Overseas Missions to Children (OMC) was formed in 2011 to coordinate and optimize resources among the various ministries and fellowship groups. Through the display of missions reports and testimonies on the OMC notice board, we hope to create missions awareness in the Church. The theme of the ministry is taken from Mark 10:45, "For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." Currently, OMC does not have a formal membership, a fixed number of attendance and a formal meeting venue.

From its inception to May 2012, God has enabled many of our church ministries and fellowship groups to conduct about 13 Vacation Bible School (VBS) in various missions outreaches.

In Indonesia, Calvary Pandan helped to conduct Vacation Bible School at Calvary Hanura Permai B-P Church, Medan B-P Church, and GAPPI Getsemani Batam Church. We thank God for the many young children who attended and were blessed by the Word of God. We pray that God will continue to send His people from the various ministries in our church to go beyond our shores to teach the children the Word of God and to lead these young souls to salvation in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

In Northern Thailand, we thank God for sending His faithful team of servants to BDC Chiang Rai for the past six years. Thank God that the BDC children have grown in the faith and knowledge of the Lord.

In East Malaysia, God enabled our church to conduct VBS for Sibu BPC in Sibu and Miri BPC in Sarawak. The children are still very much in need of spiritual feeding and guidance from the Word of God. We thank God for the church ministries that have gone forth to help His children in East Malaysia and we earnestly pray that many more will go forth to serve.

Thank God for the good reports of blessings received. There has been an increase in the number of adult and young adult members with young families who were willing to go and serve the Lord in missions. We see how the Lord would use us to edify His people. These activities also encourage God's servants to press on in the work of the Lord, especially in the children's ministry.

We pray that in the coming years, more members will be encouraged to serve in overseas missions outreaches among the children.
