Adventist World Church President To Visit
Published: Tuesday | January 17, 2012
Pastor Ted N.C. Wilson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist World Church, is slated to visit Jamaica next month.
Wilson, who is to arrive in the island on February 3 and leave February 6, will be accompanied by his wife, Nancy.
He is down to make the main speech at the launch of "That the World May Know", an initiative of the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists (IAD). This forms part of the overall initiative of revival and reformation, which is initiated by the Church globally.
Wilson will also be the main speaker at the thanksgiving service to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the relocation - from Mandeville to Montego Bay - of the headquarters of the West Jamaica Conference. His visit to Jamaica will also include courtesy calls on national leaders.
"We welcome Elder Wilson on this his first visit to Jamaica," said Pastor Everett Brown, president of the Adventist Church in Jamaica. "The significance of his visit after just 19 months as the global Adventist head cannot be fully underscored. He wants the membership here and throughout IAD to know that our evangelistic efforts and work in improving the lives of those in our communities cannot be accomplished without a close connection with God. I am sure the membership and wider society will benefit from his visit."
Officials from the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists' 21 unions which comprise Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, the French Antilles as well as Colombia and Venezuela, will join thousands of members in Jamaica at the Northern Caribbean University gymnatorium on Friday, February 3 and Saturday, February 4.
The launch on Saturday will start at 9 a.m. with live broadcast on the Adventist-owned Hope Channel, Hope Esperanza, 3ABN, NCU-TV on Flow Channel 188 and NCU-Radio 91.1 and 91.3 FM starting at 10 a.m. It will also be webcast live at www.interamerica.org and www.jmunion.org.
