Monuments to EVM’s dynamic leadership
By Eric Jun Ramirez
The rapid growth of the Iglesia Ni Cristo today is evident not just in the beautiful and magnificent houses of worship doting the Philippine landscape and beginning to bloom in other countries but also in the landscape of the Central Office Complex in Quezon City.
In the first decade of the administration of Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, the vicinity of the Central Office building underwent major developments characterized by the construction of various office buildings and other structures. They also serve as testaments to the dynamic leadership of Brother Eduardo Manalo as he effectively addresses the ever growing concerns of the Church.
Here are the infrastructure projects at no. 1 Central Avenue completed during the first ten years of Brother Eduardo Manalo’s administration.
