People and especially Jamaicans all over the world can now watch Jamaican churches’ worship services on-line.

“With several hundred thousand Jamaicans outside of Jamaica, we are very excited to reach them as well as help them connect to their own churches in Jamaica,” said Pastor Adrian A. Cotterell, Conference president. “In essence, as part of our ‘Tell the World’ campaign, we are inviting the entire world to our churches,” continued Pastor Cotterell.

Woodburn, Conference communication’s director.
