Mission Personnel Services

SSD’s Mission Personnel Team works together with their counterparts around the world to provide support services to missionaries serving within our territory as well as to missionaries from SSD who serve in other divisions.   The team strives to provide professional support in a caring, efficient and transparent manner so that the missionaries in the field may focus their energy and passion on the fulfillment of the Gospel Commission.
Kevin K. Costello, SSD Associate Secretary-Treasurer, heads this team.  Necy Tabelisma, Laila Jessica Nacario and Connie Culapan assist with Secretariat-related items while Peggy Guptill and Blinking Lobitaña assist with the financial aspects.
