KAPATIRAN’s Mission and Vision
INFORMATION … INSPIRATION … FORMATION … EVANGELIZATION … UNIFICATION/HARMONIZATION
The KAPATIRAN Website is the official website of the Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals. with Editorial and Business office address at: BCBP National Office, Unit 416 Comfoods Bldg, Sen. Gil J. Puyat cor Chino Roces Aves., Makati City 1200, Metro Manila, Philippines, with tel. 819-0052 and fax no. 819-0051.
The KAPATIRAN website and its FaceBook site, BCBP KAPATID, provide a channel for the flow of INFORMATION from the BCBP national level to BCBP regional, chapter and member levels, and between chapters – and vice versa – to help members keep up-to-date with relevant happenings and policies in the BCBP nationwide. By keeping everyone informed of what and how others are doing, the KAPATIRAN and KAPATID encourage and provide opportunities for linkages and closer communication. As the official media vehicles of the BCBP, they also serve a historical purpose since they help document the development of the BCBP over the years.
KAPATIRAN and KAPATID strive to be a source of INSPIRATION to both members and non-members through the publication of sharings, inspiring articles and features.
They serve as a vehicle for the FORMATION of members through “Back to Basics” and “Formation” articles and other features and teaching articles that highlight important aspects of the BCBP member’s Christian Way of Life. The KAPATIRAN also provides supplemental material to help chapters and outreaches develop powerful talks based on the BCBP formation curriculum, and to stimulate relevant action group discussions and activities.
The KAPATIRAN is designed to help members EVANGELIZE and reach out to others by providing an attractive and interesting, quality internet site that espouses BCBP’s mission and values as it introduces the BCBP Way of Life to those interested, to first-timers in the BCBP Breakfasts, to business friends and associates, and to web surfers, making it a valuable tool for evangelizing the marketplace. The website’s content also strengthens the BCBP Way of Life for members.
KAPATIRAN and KAPATID help UNIFY and HARMONIZE BCBP chapters and outreaches by directing the members’ focus on the BCBP as a recognized national organization, not just a town-based, parish-based, provincial, or regional organization.
