After graduating from Reformed Bible Institue (now Kuyper College,) Vincente and Lucy Apostol returned to their homeland of the Philippines with the vision of using their CRC resources to build an indigenous church. A few years later, CRWM joined this couple and focused on planting new churches. Over five decades of ministry in the Philippines, 85 Christian Reformed households served with CRWM in the Philippines. As the Christian Reformed Church in the Philippines grew, CRWM gradually drew down the number of missionaries.
Today the CRCP is a healthy and vibrant church. CRWM missionaries who serve in the Philippines play a supporting role, developing Filipino leaders and serving in Christian schools.
