Our Philippine Missions began before the Midwest Bible Camp. In 1954 Rev. Keith Williams began the work of the Midwest Evangelistic Association. As an evangelist traveling throughout the United States and a missionary traveling in the Pacific Region, Keith began the Philippine work early in his career. God gave him a heart to reach the tribal people of Mindanao, the southern-most part of the Philippine Islands. From those early days when he traveled on the decks of cargo ships and trekked inland by foot and horseback, God has greatly increased what began as the Evangelical Christian Outreach Foundation (ECOFI). Today there are more than 500 workers, including pastors, evangelists, teachers, and administrators serving in thirteen districts. The organization has approximately 400 churches and two Bible colleges - the Keith Williams Davao Campus and the Sarangani Campus.
