The Damian Jean-Baptist Caribbean School of Ministry is now a reality
Kingston, Jamaica – July 28, 2014: After almost a year of planning, preparation and prayer, the Damian Jean-Baptiste Caribbean School of Ministry, kicked off in late July with a three-day training course in Kingston, Jamaica.
The maiden cohort was comprised of more than 100 students from the Churches of Christ in Jamaica with a few representatives from other Caribbean islands. Participants completed classes on Biblical Interpretation, the first component of an eight module programme.
The thought-provoking lectures were delivered by Caribbean Teachers, Courtney Bailey, from Kingston, Jamaica and Tyrone Marcus of Port of Spain, Trinidad as well as renowned biblical scholar, Douglas Jacoby.
For both Tyrone and Courtney, the delivery of the inaugural course was the culmination of a dream to provide in-depth biblical teaching to Christians in the Caribbean region while honouring the man both consider a spiritual hero, the late Damian Jean-Baptiste.
