Amidst torrential rains that saw some churches canceling up to 3 meeting nights for the week, 138 persons got baptized during Lay Preach-a-thon 2017 that ran between November 11-18.
Lay Preach-a-Thon is a one-week evangelistic programme organized by the Personal Ministries Department of Central Jamaica Conference as an extension to the Annual Week of Prayer. It has been held in November every year since 2013.
“Evangelism is not merely about baptisms,” said President Johnson, as he encouraged and thanked the Pastors for their efforts. “It [Evangelism] is about proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ via the various methods. There are times when there will be no baptisms; but preach the word just the same”, Johnson continued.
