It is with sadness that we announce the death of Pastor Royden I. Hanna. This soft-spoken church leader will be fondly missed by all who knew him and were touched by his gentle spirit.

  Pastor Hanna was best known for the simple way he presented the gospel of Jesus Christ. He had the ability to clarify and expound on those passages of scripture some Bible scholars found difficult to explain. After forty years of faithful service to the Bahamas Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Pastor Hanna quietly transitioned into retirement where he spent many years attending to his wife Madelyn (deceased).

The Seventh-day Adventist Church in the Bahamas will continue to honor the life of this great servant of God, and we express sincere condolences to his family.
