Adventist Church in Jamaica Launches Initiative Help Young People Engage in Service

With the goal of sharing positive values, and encouraging spiritual devotion and transformation, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica through its youth department launched its first mobile clinic dubbed HYPE, or Helping Young People Engage.

HYPE is the coming together of Adventist young people, pooling their resources to serve God and humanity.

Speaking at the launch, which took place on Jan. 31, 2019, at the Grants Pen Peace Park in St. Andrew, Pastor Everett Brown president of the church in Jamaica, challenged the gathering and the nation to invest in the education of our young people.
