Get to Know the Buco Family

Hi, we're Michael and Jocelyn Buco. We minister in the Philippines.


Ministry Description

I am one of the missionaries of Local Church Ministries. I go to churches and build good relationships with pastors so I can promote our ministry. We serve the local churches through evangelism and discipleship. We have an evangelistic training called STORM (sending teens out to reach the masses), we also have discipleship training provided for church leaders. We have a youth program called Bible Club, a six year curriculum for youth to help them to become mature in their christian life and effective in serving the Lord. I also have the privilege to teach the Bible Institute students how to do Open Air preaching and opportunities to speak at camps.

About Michael

I was only two months old when my parents left me to my grandmother. I was 18 when I came to know the Lord at Word of Life Camp. I attended a summer camp and there I heard the gospel and believed that Jesus Christ died for my sin and rose from the dead. I became a student of Word of Life Bible Institute and as a student I began to grow in my faith and spiritual life. I was exposed to evangelism ministries and other local church ministries and through those ministries God began to open my heart to see the need of the people-the Lord Jesus Christ. God gave me a burden to share Christ to the lost and He spoke to me through His word in Romans 10:14 which says, “how shall they hear without a preacher?” I am assured that God brought me where I am now because He will use me for His glory. My heart’s desire is to share Christ, to preach Christ and to glorify God. What motivates me now is that the God that saved me, changed me and used me will be the same God that will save, change and use others.

"And for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel...that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak". Ephesians 6:19-20b
