Seventh-day Adventist Churches from the parish of Hanover, gathered at the Bioprist Factory (more commonly known as the ‘Jockey Factory’) on Sabbath June 22, 2019, for a day of  spiritual renewal and fellowship during the first leg of four conventions spearheaded by the West Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.


The Conventions which are normally hosted at the beginning of each year, were shifted to mid- year, due to the Union- wide focus on the Mission Project 2019 activities which culminated at the Montego Bay Convention Centre on February 9, 2019.


Tanielle Robinson, a member of the Welcome Seventh-day Adventist Church, was one of several persons who spoke volumes about the impact of the day’s proceedings. “It was an extremely rich day of worship” she said. “I especially found great joy in listening to the sermon presented by Pastor Donovan Williams. It reminded me that my primary responsibility on this earth is soul willing. I am happy I was able to attended and participate in the day’s proceedings” she ended.


Member of the Lucea Seventh-day Adventist Church, Ceilia Lewis, also gave her commendations to the Conference held initiative. “It was very inspirational” she echoed. “The sermon was pointed and potent, very well delivered by Pastor Williams. Overall, I found the presentations to be good, coupled of course with the afternoon session of reports from the various churches.”


Some of the features of the Hanover Convention included:

  • Mission Focused Presentations on Lord Transform Me & Mission Re- Engage (2019/2020) Strategic Focus of the Church
  • Ingathering Reports (Conducted in the afternoon)
  • Soul Stirring Gospel Singing and a
  • Power- packed Sermon (presented by Pastor Donovan Williams, who serves as Executive Secretary of the West Jamaica Conference)
