About the Director

Rev. Joseph Benong Benigno Sr.

Joseph graduated from Bible School in 1966 and joined the PFWB in 1971. He serves as the PFWB Director to Northern Philippines.

In the same year he began teaching at Harvester’s Bible Academy and served as director from 1982-2019. There are over 75 PFWB established churches in his area. He is married and has four sons (Randy, Ruel, Rene and Joseph) and many grandchildren.

He praises the Lord that in all those years, he was able to continue to start a work in the City of Baguio. As a result of that, a church with a concrete building was established and now being pastored by a dedicated minister. He then concentrated on a Sunday ministry in the City of Candon. A church was established and this is the church that he currently is pastoring.

Joseph said that he is just waiting of when the Lord will whisper in his ear that it is time for him to turn over the pastorate to someone anointed by the Lord. In all these 51 years of serving the Lord under the PFWB, he saw and personally observed and experienced of how the Lord delivered him from accidents and how He blessed the needs of their family in so many ways.

He prays that the remaining years of his journey as a pilgrim, will all be devoted for God's glory under the PFWB.

Prayer Needs // From Joseph
My wife and I are getting older. We always have had physical problems. Please pray with us that the Lord will supply our needs. Please pray with me that my two sons who graduated in Bible College will follow the direction of the Lord. Joseph Jr. is now serving as Academic dean of Harvesters Bible Academy, but Randy, my eldest is no longer in the ministry.

I am so thankful that our brethren in the US are always ready to help us in time of calamity. Pray with us that the Lord will help our country to rise up in the midst of calamities due to earthquakes, typhoons, volcanic eruptions and the unending insurgency problem.
