In May 2015, Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales flies to the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii to attend a 25-day Advanced Leadership Training in Haggai Institute.
Haggai Institute is a worldwide community of Christian leaders that takes evangelistic expertise to places where it’s needed most. Students of the Advanced Leadership Training come from almost every profession from every Christian tradition. Despite the diversity of their backgrounds, all are focused on one task – bringing the values of Jesus Christ to the world, through direct evangelism or humanitarian efforts.
Among the notable Filipino alumni from Haggai Institute are former Chief Justice Reynato Puno, and Salt and Light Ventures President Boris Joaquin.
After a rigorous screening process of more than 8000 applications, Pocholo is one of the 30 delegates – and one of the youngest participants – selected from various parts of the world to attend this intensive, all-expense paid training. Only established leaders in their own fields are qualified to apply for the training. Through his advocacies in communication, voice and youth empowerment, there is no doubt that the VoiceMaster will not only successfully complete the training, but will use his learning to further his advocacies for the youth and his fellow Filipinos.
Congratulations and the best of luck, VoiceMaster!
