Message from the President
With the increased cases of COVID 19, the East Jamaica Conference Administration wishes to reiterate and strengthen its commitment to the safety of all its members in this region, by encouraging all to uphold the protocols of the Government of Jamaica.
The Jamaica Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists has accepted these protocols and has sought to remind us of these in its COVID 19 Release #4 dated August 7, 2020. Therefore, as members of God's church, we have a civil responsibility to respect and obey the government of the land as stated in Romans 13:1-2, as long as there is no conflict with the laws of God.
It has come to our attention, that there are individuals within the confines of our churches who do not wish to practice the safety regulations and are also encouraging others along this path. As an Administration, we are imploring all our members who do not want to follow the protocols to remain at home.
Also, we wish to remind you that the government has outlined that there is a penalty for not adhering to the COVID 19 protocols.
It is my desire that we do our part in the best interest of our health and safety. I, therefore implore that we cooperate and pray for God's continuous guidance in our lives and that of our country.

EJC Campsite named as JAMU Labour day Project
The East Jamaica Conference’s Phillipsfield Campsite received nationwide support on Monday when it was named as the Labour Day Project for Jamaica Union Conference this year by Pastor Everett Brown, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica. This was done at a JAMU summit with Pastors and church leaders in Mandeville on March 9, 2015.
Phillipsfield Campsite to be one of the Best - Says Nathan
More than three hundred persons responded to the call by the East Jamaica Conference (EJC) leadership, to attend a workday at Phillipsfield in St. Thomas, to clear sections of the three hundred and sixty acre property in preparation for the building of Conference campsite. Volunteers from several churches in the constituency came from the four zones in support of the new drive to begin work at the campsite, which have remained only a dream for more than ten years.
