South Leeward SDA Launches Mission‬

The-mission-headquartersAntigua, St John's- In just two days, three territories in the Southern Leeward Islands will unify to form the South Leeward Mission (SLM) of Seventh-day Adventist. Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts-Nevis and Montserrat will solidify this historic event on Sunday 6th March, when they launch the new Mission at the St. John’s Seventh-day Adventist Church in Antigua, starting at 3:00p.m.

The new Mission, which will be headed by Pastor Desmond James of St. Kitts, will also host its election of directors following the launch service.

The mission’s headquarters which is located here in Antigua at their newly-renovated building located on American Road will also be dedicated this Sunday 6th March at 1:00. p.m.

“The growth of the church has dictated a need for the leadership to be closer to the people and this will facilitate an environment for growth in these territories,” Secretary/Treasurer of the new Mission, Pastor Carson Greene explained. 

Greene further noted that the launch of the Mission would mean that those territories involved will no longer be under the direct control of the North Caribbean Conference of Seventh-day Adventist . 


He however noted that independence would mean added benefits for the people of the South Leeward Mission.

“This will have an impact on what can be done in the territories involved. We would be able to provide training to better equip our members, more in youth work and humanitarian work and will assist the church in functioning in a more efficient manner,” Greene said.

Pastor Kay White, a female pastor here in Antigua who will also be a part of the new Mission, explained that tithes and offerings collected within the involved countries will now, instead of going to the North Caribbean Conference, stay within the Mission where it is expected to “do more.”


“We will be able to see more of what these monies will be used for. We will assume responsibility for those institutions that now fall under the North Caribbean Conference like the Seventh Day Adventist Schools, Tabitha, Second Advent Radio and others,” White said.

The pastor added though, that the structure of all these institutions will remain intact and will be managed by the people selected to head them.

Preceding the inauguration, there will be an island-wide convention for the membership and friends of the SDA Church.  This will take place on Saturday, 5th March, under the tents at Paynters east of Hero’s Park. Later that day at 3:45p.m., there will be the dedication service of the newly-constructed Steps to Christ (Spanish) Adventist Church located at Cooks Hill, bordering the Golden Grove New Extension.  On Sunday, 13th March at 3 p.m. the Clare Hall SDA members will also dedicate their new church building.

People who do not understand always feel comfortable to criticise. The church is not breaking away. They are working closely together to improve the work globally. Please do not spend the energy on being negative, love and grow and do not allow negative emotions to overpower you. We are a growing church and not a dividing one

in the last days scoffers will rise up. It is interesting to note that many of these are from within the church. Note well thats why the church has hypocrites because it is a hospital for sin sick people, not a kingdom of the righteous and the wheat and the tears MUST grow together until the harvest. Dont you worry about the dividing nor the conquest , just be sure we all are ready to meet OUR maker, and stay within the church because you ae 'sick' just like me sin-sick and God has the remedy for us:-*:-*

#3 very disappointed in the vi » 2011-03-05 00:34

I can not get over the shock that individuals would be so short sighted as to believe that pulling away from the organized body in this manner could be wise. Not only does it send a negative message to those who expect us to be different, but it sets this new "mission" up for failure. God does not operate in this manner, but the evil one does and has been a divisive catalyst from the beginning (he did try to set up his own "kingdom in the midst of God's realm, didn't he?). Here he is again, working to destroy Gods church and are we so BLIND that we don't see his architectural signature? Talk about the Laodicxxn effect!!!!!!!!!!!! :'(
