Who would have thought that in the midst of the worst pandemic the world has experienced over the past one hundred years that the Seventh-day Adventist church in Jamaica would have been able to successfully stage the single largest evangelistic campaign ever?
History will record that the first island wide digital evangelistic campaign in Jamaica was held during the period October 3 – 24, 2020 and was themed “Let’s Talk about Him, I follow Jesus”- (LTAH). The campaign was held under the leadership of the Jamaica Union Conference (JAMU) with campaign speaker being Pastor Dane Fletcher and co-evangelist Pastor Omar Oliphant. Just over three hundred and fifty persons where baptized during the series which was transmitted each night across the communication platforms of all five Conferences in Jamaica.
Speaking to thousands of viewers online on the final evening of the series, evangelist for the series, Pastor Dane Fletcher said “if I were to choose a speaker for the Let’s Talk about Him – I follow Jesus digital evangelistic series, it would not have been me but thank God for the privilege.” Pastor Fletcher was grateful for the supportive team across Jamaica which included administrators and directors from JAMU and the five Conferences, pastors, prayer warriors, singers, musicians and church members across the island who worked and prayed to make the series a success.
Pastor Everett Brown, president, JAMU in his final address during the series signaled that the church would continue to use and even increase the use of online digital mediums to share the gospel given our present circumstances.
