In addition, Pastor Clarke spent four years (2008-2012) in the Cayman Islands, serving as the president and education director of the Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
His contribution to the Bahamian community has included volunteering as a member of the Bahamas National Drug Council, Prison Fellowship Bahamas, the Ministry of Tourism’s People-to-People program, and the Ministry of Education’s scholarship committee. He also served as deputy chair of the National Youth Advisory Committee and currently sits on the Juvenile Panel for the Bahamas. He is a trained chaplain with the Ministry of Health, a marriage officer, and a justice of the peace.
Pastor Clarke’s love for evangelism has taken him to England, Nairobi, the USA, and the islands of the Caribbean.
In December 2015, Pastor Clarke was elected to the position of youth, personal ministries, and stewardship director for the Atlantic Caribbean Union comprised of the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
