Blast From The Past
Unstoppably driven by his newfound passion for Jesus, Eddie Villanueva officially broke ties with his Communist advocacies during the heat of the Martial Law era in the Philippines. In 1978, amid political turmoil and social unrest, he founded the Jesus Is Lord Church from a handful of 15 students who were equally curious and passionate about God. He trained them, led them, and together, by the power of the Holy Spirit, they propelled JIL into a global ministry, expanding across the Philippines and around 50 other countries today.
The JIL Church fulfills its God-given destiny of evangelizing every generation that is to come. Thus, on December 16, 1989, evolving from the School Outreach Ministry, the Kristiyanong Kabataan para sa Bayan Movement was formed by Bro. Eddie.
KKB Movement’s first major youth gathering was held at the YWCA auditorium in United Nations Avenue, Manila. It turned into a once-a-month affair which never failed to fill the venue. Fired up and revved up, JIL Church’s youth ministry freshmen obviously couldn’t get enough of God! In no time, the monthly youth fellowships became combinations of weekly prayer meetings and youth services for high school and collect students and young professionals. The members were so motivated that they eventually stepped out to conduct Bible studies, evangelistic crusades, trainings and seminars in their schools.
But the passion of KKB’s ‘80s-‘90s freshmen couldn’t just be bottled up in Manila’s campuses. In less than five years since its founding, the Movement was able to launch a full-scale church-planting mission to Albay province (southeast from Manila). The island-hopping and mountain-trekking debut mission trip paid off as JIL Church’s various chapters in Albay remain today. Indeed, a legacy that shall stand timeless for JIL youth’s history.
Drawing strength and experience from these formative years, KKB carried on to become what it was meant to become: a Christian youth movement with a patriotic kick. The ‘90s stretch gradually immersed KKB members to interceding for the nation and helping solve its socio-political woes. It did not keep silent on pressing moral issues such as pornography and corruption in the government. Its began implementing programs that created social awareness to the youth. It also pushed its members to take active part in community building by conducting various humanitarian outreaches. These also become the Movement’s means of getting across God’s message of hope and love in different parts of the country.
Through the years, KKB Movement has not ceased as a dynamic youth force in transforming young people by the power of God. Its social involvement echoes justice and righteousness. And most essentially, it carries on the work upon which JIL started: campus evangelism. Through life-changing leadership programs and community outreaches, KKB Movement trains and develops young students who are passionate about God’s love.
