Under Pressure: About the Speaker

Hi guys! Some of you might really be wondering who will be facilitating the entire workshop tomorrow for “Under Pressure”. Here’s something for you, and I hope you’d appreciate how blessed we are to have this guy with us. 🙂


About the Speaker

“I am John Ricafrente Pesebre of Ratio Christi Campus Apologetics Alliance International and the chapter director at Ratio Christi at University of the Philippines Diliman. I’m also the Educational Program Coordinator of GCF North Leadership Institute of the Conservative Baptist Seminary Asia. I’m a radio Bible teacher over at Back to the Bible Philippines’ “Tanglaw sa Landas ng Buhay” aired 7pm at 702 DZAS every Tuesday and Thursday.

My apologetics ministy has also taken me to numerous denomination-sponsored conference such as the Assemblies of God, Chinese Congress of World Evangelism, Conservative Baptist Association of the Philippines, iDisciple of the Luzon Southern Baptists and a host of other church-sponsored events. I have also had the opportunity to be a resource-person appearing at The 700 Club Asia aired at Kapuso GMA. 

I have been in the pastorate for more than fifteen years until I found myself in a major health setback. 

On January 7, 2013 I found out that both my kidneys failed. I had a year-long maintenance of dialysis treatments, 3 times a week. Bummer. On March 20, 2014, I received a kidney transplant with a kidney donated by my younger sister, sailor and firewoman, Prescilla.

There is one word that describes my life: REDEEMED. I get this to mean that God claimed me as His own. So until He’s not done with my divine assignment, Superman’s got nothing on me.”

What is Ratio Christi?

“Ratio Christi (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’) is a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ. Bringing together faith and reason to establish the intellectual voice of Christ in the University, Ratio Christi is planting student and faculty led apologetics clubs at universities around the world. Students, engaged in the battle for the mind, learn to defend God’s existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the fact of Christ’s resurrection. We seek a Renaissance of Christian Thinking in the University.
