Delegates from the fourth Quadrennial Session of the West Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, elected the team of Directors and Administrators to serve for the 2018-2022 Quadrennium. The Quadrennial Session took place between June 20 & 21, 2018, at the Seventh-day Adventist Conference Centre in Montego Bay.

The Elected Departmental Directors are as follows:

  • Pastor Vincent Rose: Ministerial Secretary
  • Carol Smythe-James: Children, Adolescents and Women's Ministries
  • Pastor France Chambers: Communication
  • Pastor Norman Thompson: Family Ministries
  • Pastor Christopher Harvey: Youth Ministries
  • Pastor Jonathan Myrie: Associate Communication and Public Affairs and Religious Liberty (PARL) and Trust Services
  • Pastor Laundale Munroe: Sabbath School
  • Pastor Charles Brevitt: Stewardship and Leadership Development
  • Pastor Egnal Grant: Health and Personal Ministries

The following Administrators were re-elected to serve for the 2018-2022 Quadrennium: Pastor Glen Samuels: President, Pastor Donovan Williams: Executive Secretary and Mrs. Marion Barrett Popkin: Treasurer.

As leader of the newly elected team, Pastor Glen O. Samuels, graciously accepted the responsibility to give leadership to the Conference’s mission for a second consecutive term as President, and his third in that capacity.

“Sail On!” was the charge given by him to the delegates, as he accepted the auspicious task to lead the West Jamaica Conference. “The territory with the most bloodshed and the greatest level of darkness,” added the President “needs a church that is shining at its brightest.

He requested prayer and support from the members, for both himself and His family as he remains resolute to accomplish what God has laid on his heart; “the spreading of the gospel.”

The positions of Education Director and Publishing Ministries Director will be recommended by the Executive Committee of the Conference and voted by the Executive Committee of Jamaica Union Conference at a later date. The Session was supervised by Pastor Everett Brown, President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica and saw over five hundred fifty delegates from two hundred forty-five (245) congregations.
