President Rodrigo Duterte declared a state of public health emergency on Monday, March 9, 2020 due to coronavirus. In Proclamation No. 922 signed on Sunday, March 8, and released to media on Monday, Duterte ordered all government agencies and local government units to cooperate and mobilize necessary resources to combat the coronavirus.
As an affiliated church of the PGCAG, Destiny City Church responded accordingly by suspending Sunday worship services and all other scheduled events until further notice.
Urbanization refers to a process in which an increasing proportion of an entire population lives in cities and the suburbs of cities. The Philippines has more than 1,608 towns and cities with a significant number of conversion of municipalities into cities. In the year 2000, 16 new cities were created and 15 more were converted in the first half of 2001, bringing the total number of cities to 115. By the year 2020, it is estimated that the country will have more or less 600 cities and urban centers. We should realize that most of the people in the last days will be urban people
Sociologists observe that people’s psychology and lifestyles change in an urban environment. The progress to urban mindset and lifestyle and the rise of a category of people `who do not like church and religion’ demand that we consider a new way of approaching people with the gospel and doing church.
This is the reason why we included URBANIDAD as a main feature of Hart Camp since 2016.
The bigger team working together for Hart Camp 2018 is composed of the Destiny Team composed of the full time workers of Destiny City Church and the Berean School of Ministry Batch 27 students. For months they have worked on every kind of work to prepare for this event. Three days to the event, they sat down in a meeting and received inspiration from the prospect that the effort they are investing for Hart Camp 2018 has the potential to impact the local churches and consequently will impact their respective communities.
The teachers of Quiver SChool – the Destiny City Church based kinder school are joining Hart Camp 2018. They will spread themselves to attend different culture streams and are in for learning skills and receiving tools relevant to their teaching profession in early childhood.
HartCamp is more than a conference, more than a seminar
Motivational? Yest it is! The plenary sessions will stir your passion and challenge you to do more and do what is excellent! Informational? There will be lots and fresh information with opportunities for Q & A. Practical? We say, show and let you! You will be given tools that you can put to use to better the way you do the ministry back in your local settings. Experiential? The principles and ideas shared are better understood when experienced. Morning Expo times and Evening events will immerse you into the culture that are being taught in HartCamp. Equipping? This is one feature that makes HartCamp strikingly different. Stream sessions in Music, Media, Visual Arts and Dance are upskill opportunities in these areas.
