On Sabbath September 1, 2018, the West Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the Jamaica Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists will host four simultaneous conventions in each parish of the Constituency, as it prepares to create awareness about the Inter American Division’s Project 2019 initiative.


During the meetings, it is the hope of the Conferences' leadership to create heightened awareness about the role each church will play in effectively fulfilling the mission at hand. The Conventions will take place at the Seventh-day Adventist Conference Centre in St. James, the Jockey Factory in Hanover, the Sav-la-mar High School in Westmoreland and the Santa Cruz and Bull Savannah Churches in St. Elizabeth. Project 2019 will highlight the increased focus on the Health Message as a powerful tool in the spreading the gospel to the people of Jamaica.


According to Vice President of the Inter American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, Dr. Balvin Braham, the Division is now in the process of preparing to engage all the members of the Church in Jamaica to participate in a “special mission, which hopefully can usher in the second coming of Jesus Christ.”


Braham noted as he shared in the worship service at the Lilliput Seventh-day Adventist Church on Sabbath July 28, 2018, “Our focus is on Wholistic Health: Personal and National Transformation. We would like to share the message of health, hope and healing to persons in this country who are hurting, who are going through difficult moments and who are suffering in some ways” he added.


“We would like people to know that there is hope in Jesus. We also want to impact the highest levels of society with the health message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church” ended the Vice President.


The Project 2019 list of activities will the visit of the leadership of the World Church, Divisions and Institutions to the West Jamaica Conference territory, culminating in a convention and island-wide baptism on Sabbath February 9, 2019, where the desire is to broadcast to the Division how the people of Jamaica are being impacted by the Health Message.
