For the past twelve months, elders from the twenty-four fields within the Inter-American Division have been preparing for their annual certification. This event is a part of the Division’s Continuing Education Program designed to help local church leaders fulfill the demands of ministry for the times in which we live. 

Ministerial Secretary for the South Bahamas Conference, Pastor T. Basil Sturrup is the one responsible for the ongoing training for elders in the South Bahamas Conference. “I am pleased with the significant increase in the number of elders that participated compared to last year’s enrollment in the program, Pastor Sturrup said. As a Conference we welcome this initiative which is designed to prepare and empower leaders in the local church for greater service to the community of believers.” 

Pastor Michael A. Smith, Ministerial Secretary for Atlantic Caribbean Union Mission of Seventh-day Adventist’s will host this program to certify elders from the Bahamas, the Caymans Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands. All elders are asked to attend  the meeting using the ZOOM code below at four o’clock on February 20, 2020, for the climax of this year's program.
