In 2016, Terry Legg, Chaplain and founder of LSCA attended a conference for Sports Chaplaincy International, held in Hong Kong. It was at this conference that Terry meet some delegates from Manila and started a conversation about Chaplaincy in Philippine Life Saving. The president of Philippine Life Saving was positive and supportive of the idea.
After several years of emails and trying to find the right person to take Life Saving Chaplaincy in the Philippines forward, Terry received an email introduction to Pastor Gary Visitacion, who is the South Pacific Director of Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
