Some directors who mostly are priests attend its modular courses.

The WABIns are expected to become competent and committed proclaimers of the Word, teachers of the faith and bible animators for communities.

WABIns after completing the Level 2 program may upon recommendation of the community be installed as LAY MINISTER OF THE WORD. They are encouraged to continue their formation through Updating Courses.

All three levels/ courses have  three components: biblical, theological, pastoral

  • Training & formation in the diocesan level by the diocesan core teams/ “middle managers” to cater to the needs of the locality, mostly in collaboration with other ministries.

  1. I am a newly appointed BA Coordinator of our Parish and I urgently need a good manual for BBS1 and 2, and Discipleship Manual. Where would these manuals be available? Do you have an online training for Facilitators of BBS 1 & 2? Thank you. Our Parish is located inside Brookside Hills Subd., Cainta, Rizal. Its name is the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish headed by Rev. Fr. Gerry Evarola. God bless you po.
