Pat Mamaclay got saved in Cebu at age 42 in 1989 and received his ministry calling in 1996 while visiting the Filipino churches in Hawaii. He brought into his ministry a wide range of experience as a former youth leader, radio announcer and political activist during his younger days in Ilocos Norte, Philippines. Later on he moved to Cebu City and became an insurance sales manager and businessman. He went into full time ministry in 1997 as the first Missions Director of Immanuel World Outreach Center (IWOC), the fastest growing cell group church in Cebu City at that time. He acquired his initial training in missions at Living Springs International (LSI) in Butuan City, Philippines. As a Missions Mobilizer, he now serves as LSI Course Coordinator for Hawaii in running the KAIROS (Condensed World Missions) Course. Before migrating to Florida USA, he finished the Missionary Training Course at the Asia Pacific Theological Seminary in Baguio City under the auspices of the Assemblies of God Asian Missions Association (AGAMA). He had his first cross cultural ministry exposure with a tribe in the hinterlands of Aklan, Philippines; a short term mission trip in Indonesia; brief training and visit in Singapore and Malaysia; and more than a year of ministering to the Muslim-Badjaos of Cebu City. As Missions Director of IWOC, he planted outreach churches and oversaw 13 daughter churches in the Visayas region. He facilitated the Condensed World Mission Course while in Cebu and several of his graduates have been serving as missionaries in Indonesia and Thailand. He now serves as Church Administrator and elder of Trinity Church Central Oahu in Hawaii. He is married to Nenita Mamaclay with whom he has 3 grown up sons.
