This year, 2016, begins a year long celebration of God’s faithfulness to the Jamaican Association of General Baptists (JAGB). In August they will mark their 50th year – a year of Jubilee.
In recognition of this milestone, GBIM has partnered with JAGB to purchase a new church lot for the Heavenly Highway General Baptist Church pastored by Rev. Philip Pusey. The Heavenly Highway Church has experienced significant growth over the last several years and is great need of a new home. The JAGB endorsed this project to GBIM as the recipient of our 2016 Ed Stevens Offering.
A goal of $50,000 has been set for the 2016 Ed Stevens offering, held in September of each year. According to GBIM Director Mark Powell, “It will take all of our kingdom partners working together to accomplish this goal for the growth of God’s Kingdom in Jamaica.”
As part of the JAGB celebration the GBIM portion of the Summit Missions offering will also be designated for the Jamaica Association. We are grateful to have this opportunity to partner with the Jamaica Association and encourage you to partner with us to make this a great year and successful celebration of God’s grace.
