NBC Administrators Pay Courtesy Call

Communication Department, North Bahamas Conference, March 24, 2016

On Wednesday, March 16, 2016, pastors Henry Moncur and Andrew Burrows, and sister Tonia Palmer, the administrators of the North Bahamas conference, along with pastor Desmond Sturrup, the youth director of the conference, made a courtesy call on the Senior Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of the Northern Bahamas, Emerick Seymour, and his team of officers at the police headquarters in Grand Bahama.

The courtesy call is one in a series of meetings requested by the new conference administrators with governmental, civic, and religious leaders on the island of Grand Bahama, The Bahamas. The new administrators were officially installed during a consecration service on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at the Freeport Seventh-day Adventist Church, Freeport, Grand Bahama. Pastor Henry R. Moncur, who previously served as the executive secretary, was installed as the president. He replaces Pastor Errol Tinker, who served as president for the past ten years, and has officially retired. Pastor Andrew E. Burrows, who previously served as the youth, communication, stewardship, and personal ministries director for the Atlantic Caribbean Union, was installed to serve as executive secretary. Mrs. Tonia Palmer is currently serving as the chief financial officer.


During the meeting, ideas were shared concerning how the Seventh-day Adventist church and the Royal Bahamas Police Force can work in partnership to impact the community of Grand Bahama. Pastor Henry Moncur assured the police that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is always ready and willing to assist the police force. Some of the areas suggested by the church include:

1. Offering spiritual guidance and prayer for the officers of the Royal Bahamas Force

2. Holding various religious services for the police

3. Hosting (in conjunction with police) various forums on crime prevention, and other social issues affecting the residents of Grand Bahama

4. Meeting the felt needs of the police

5. Working with the police in their youth mentoring program

During the upcoming weeks, other courtesy calls are scheduled with other leaders, as the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the North Bahamas seeks to make an impact by sharing the gospel of Jesus in all areas.


The Hour of Victory Gospel Series

Communication Department, Marsh Harbour S.D.A. Church/ North Bahamas Conference, March 24, 2016

On March 6, 2016, members of the Marsh Harbour Seventh-day Adventist church, in Abaco, The Bahamas, launched out in the “Hour of Victory Gospel Campaign.” Each night, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Wilson Isnord, trumpeted the word of God with clarity and power, from the big white tent in Murphy Town, through every street and into every home in the community.

According to Basil Been, the communication director for the church, and a member of the crusade team, the messages each night cover a wide range of spiritual topics. “Truths about the Sabbath and the state of the dead are being promulgated with a new flavor that can leave no doubt in the minds of those who hear,” he explains. Been notes that health issues like hypertension and diabetes are being carefully addressed in the nightly health tips.

The Bible workers bring testimonies of hearts being touched and lives being changed. Five precious souls have been delivered from the kingdom of the enemy and were baptized as a public witness on Sabbath, March 19.

The Hour of Victory Gospel Campaign is a part of the overall evangelistic thrust of the North Bahamas conference, where each church district is engaged in front-line evangelism during the first quarter of 2016. Thus far, throughout the North Bahamas Conference, sixty (60) precious souls surrendered their lives to Christ and were baptized.
