Written by: Phillip E. L. Castell | Wednesday, July 22, 2020
Pastor Brian Shaw is the new Youth Ministries Director at East Jamaica Conference (EJC) effective July 22, 2020. Shaw was voted to be the Youth Ministries Director on July 21, 2020 by the East Jamaica Conference Executive Committee, the highest decision making body of the church between Conference sessions. He is expected to serve in this position until the next Conference Session set to take place in July 2022.
Pastor Shaw succeeds Pastor Ray Davis who has been at the helm of Youth Ministries in EJC for close to five years and who has served faithfully as a pastor in EJC for seventeen years. The Youth Ministries Director position became vacant after the resignation of Pastor Ray Davis which became effective on July 17, 2020. Pastor Davis and his two children are soon to join his wife, who migrated to Canada late last year.
Before his election as Youth Ministries Director, Pastor Brian Shaw served as district pastor for the Florence Hill district of churches which includes the Florence Hill, Lawrence Tavern, Cavaliers, Peat Hill and Toms River Seventh-day Adventist Churches. He joined East Jamaica Conference as an intern pastor on January 1, 2016 and was ordained to the gospel ministry just under four years later on November 16, 2019.
Pastor Shaw and his wife Nadine are parents of two adult children Anghel and Matthew.
