would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost
one until he finds it?" - Lk 15:4

The Formation Apostolate oversees the spiritual growth and
formation of the BLD Community members for service in the BLD
Community and in the larger Church. It accomplishes this mission
through its Service, Intercessory, Teaching and Word ministries.
The Service Ministry's mission is to bind the community together
as one, instilling the values of righteousness, servanthood, humility
and obedience among the members through the sharing of the spiritual
gifts and fruits received through our ministry work.
The Intercessory Ministry are composed of prayer warriors who
"stand in the gap" on behalf of others and the community. We believe
in the power of prayer and the innumerable graces obtained most
especially by group prayer.
The Teaching Ministry aims to equip the members with basic
Christian teachings through the conduct of the Christian Discipleship
Formation Program, a three year service/intercessory/education track
for Life in the Spirit Seminar graduates.
The Word Ministry aims to encourage members to live out the
Gospel through daily scripture readings and other spiritual readings.
It is also responsible for the development of the newsletter and
