DCF Alumni Association Soon!

After more than two decades, the Dormitories Christian Fellowship (UPDCF) will soon have an SEC-registered Alumni Association to partner with the dorms ministry in the University of the Philippines Diliman.

The said association is a product of discussions among alumni from different batches, culminating in the formal election of the first set of officers on May 28.

In its Articles of Incorporation, the UPDCF-AA aims to “provide spiritual support to DCF and its members” as well as “material support for Christian workers” serving in the ministry.

Among the alumni, it seeks to “promote fellowship” through regular faith gatherings and activities. At the same time, it spearheads the expansion of the ministry “to other UP campuses and beyond.”

The UPDCF-AA is currently headed by Rex Recio, a former member of the Narra Christian Fellowship. Also in the roster of officers are Luther Caranguian, Jed Velarde, Arvin Alfonso, Joan Ocampo, Marrick Neri and Michelle Bastasa.

A timeline was set to meet all SEC requirements before the end of the first semester of UP Academic Year 2011-2012.  As such, paperwork for the registration is underway, inching closer to the final SEC submission and approval of the association.

In the past, similar efforts to unite DCF alumni under one association failed because of weak communication and coordination. To resolve this issue, the UPDCF-AA is currently updating its alumni database while connecting to older members who are already outside of the country.

Pastor Carlos Novister, a long-time spiritual adviser of the organization, is especially helpful in tapping older alumni because most of them were under his care during their stay in UP.

A meeting with the current DCF executive committee was scheduled by the alumni officers next month to get to know their counterparts better and to build relationships with the younger generation of DCF.
