Ang Dating Daan host Bro. Eli Soriano is one of the Dangal ng Bayan awardees for his world-class works as an international evangelist.
Given by the National Consumer Affairs Foundation on June 21 this year, the prestigious award named Bro. Eli as an “Outstanding Global Evangelist”. The award was given at the AFP Theater in Quezon City.
According to its website, the Dangal ng Bayan Awards recognizes “World-Cass Filipino Products and Achievers” whose achievement contributes to nation-building and Filipino “greatness” worldwide.
The award was founded in 1981 by the National Consumer Affairs Foundation with the Dangal ng Bayan Committee advocate Jonathan Navea.
This is the second award for Bro. Eli from the Foundation who selected him last 2014 as the “Best Bible-Based TV/Radio Evangelist”.
Bro. Eli’s Ang Dating Daan show was also recognized by the awards committee last year as the “Best Longest Running Religious Program”.
The international evangelist is the long-time host of Ang Dating Daan, which has been around since 1980. The show joined mainstream television in 1983. It will celebrate its 35th year in the airwaves this year.
