Literature Evangelists Gather for Historic Joint Congress in Curacao

Nearly 200 literature evangelists from across Jamaica, the English Caribbean and the Netherlands Antilles met recently for the first joint Literature Evangelists Congress in Willemstad, Curacao. The event was designed to strengthen the literature evangelism ministry by facilitating testimonies, sharing experiences, and learning new skills.

Themed “Cast Deeper,” the four-day congress, held Aug. 21-24, 2019, is the first of its kind held by three of the longest established literature evangelistic ministries among the English speaking unions in the Inter-American Division, said Pastor Erwin González, publishing ministries director for the church in Inter-America.

“It was very inspiring to see how dynamic and strong these unions are in their publishing ministry,” said Pastor Gonzáz. “It is mainly because of the support from administrators and publishing ministries directors at every level of the church organization there.”
