On June 18 and 19, 2018, the East Jamaica Conference (EJC) will host its fifth quadrennial session at the Kencot SDA Church to elect officers and directors to serve the Seventh-day Adventist Church in EJC for the next four years.
Over four hundred delegates and special guests from across the four zones and thirty one pastoral districts, is expected to participate in the session which will be held under the theme “Transformed into His image: # Homeward Bound.”
President of EJC, Pastor Eric Nathan requested that the church present the session in prayer to the Lord throughout the day on June 16, 2018 and requested that the delegates prepare themselves for a truly spiritual experience that will long be remembered.
Prayer Coordinator of the Conference, Pastor Cedric McAnuff said “we consider this time to be rather significant and feel this is a good time to ask for Divine Intervention in the choices we are about to make.”
Delegates are expected to turn up for registration at the entrance of the V.H. Multipurpose building on Monday June 18, 2018 between 7:30 – 9:30 a.m. to receive their packages and official badges.
Pastor Carl Cunningham who is chairman of the logistics committee said Non-delegates, (visitors, friends, relatives, etc.) will also be required to register if they intend to view the church in session and will be fitted with an armband before being allowed to sit upstairs in the balcony of the Kencot church.
“No one will be allowed to enter the session without wearing a badge or armband,” said Cunningham. This was being done to ensure that we can account for everyone who turns up on the day of the session.
Food and Refreshments
For those who intend to turn up just for curiosity, please remember to take your own food and refreshments as this will be provided only for delegates wearing their identification badges.
Safety and Security
Delegates who have to walk to the Kencot Church are being asked to enter from the Osbourne Road end (National Baking Co. Ltd) instead of the Grove Road end (Tropical Battery) if you have to walk alone.
