We are an international team. There are Filipinos, Swiss and Germans. Something we are truly excited about is this - our local Filipino staff who are all a fruit of our ministry. Some have gone through the Set Fee Center rehab program, others are former street kids and lived with us at the Father's House ... May we introduce to you ...

In 2006, the family - Jonathan & Dori and their three children - went to Manila in order to work at the Set Free Center (rehab of HELP Philippines). After a couple of years being a co-worker, Jonathan took on the leadership of the Set Free Center. Two years ago, he was appointed as senior leader of HELP Philippines. Since he has passionately ›enlarged the ropes of the tent‹ of the ministry in order to reach even more people with the saving grace and love of Jesus. Furthermore, he together with a small team is leading the REVIVAL SCHOOL Philippines. It's his heart's desire that young people experience healthy discipleship and walk in Jesus' footsteps; he and his team are training young people and help them to enter into their God-given destiny.

Dori, the wife of Jonathan Pieren has lost her heart to the lost and needy of Metro Manila.

Ruel Dela Cruz
Ruel is also a fruit of the Set Free Center. He loves to worship Jesus. With this gift, he easily brings his passion for worship into the hi-ways and bi-ways of Metro Manila thereby bringing light into the dark places. His hunger for the word of God makes him a natural evangelist.

Due to this deep gratefulness for his new life in Jesus, his love for worship and for the word of God as well as his heart that is going out to the lost, he is very effective in passing on what lives within him anyway.
