Derrick Manalo

Since 2006, the Lord has been Derrick's life in everything he does. In a local Church in Doha, Qatar, through his wife's patience and dedication, he accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Graduating in the Philippines from St. Bridget College Batangas and the University of Santo Tomas, he's now since moved to Calgary where he serves as the Enlisting Pillar head of GCF Calgary. Derrick, in his role, leads the congregation to membership through activities such as ushering or special events.

The Enlisting Ministry is one of the ways the Lord has called Derrick to know more about his fellow brethren in Church. He continuously encourages and prays for them. This is not his only ministry though. Derick is also a drummer for the worship teams.

You can find encouraging words from Derrick on the basketball court on Mondays at Westside Baptist Church. And regardless of what you may have heard, he's actually not too bad of a cook himself. If you ever need someone to pray for you, Derrick will gladly pray loudly for the Lord to hear.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
