The executive committee of the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, at its annual year-end meetings, which were held in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico from Friday, October 20 to Sunday, October 22, 2017, elected Dr. Leonard A. Johnson, president of the Atlantic Caribbean Union of Seventh-day Adventists, with headquarters in Nassau, Bahamas, to the position of associate ministerial secretary for the 24 unions of the division.

Dr. Johnson becomes the second Bahamian national to be elected to lead a department of this division of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. The first was Dr. Leslie V. McMillan who served as ministerial and communication director.

We congratulate Dr. Johnson on his election to this important leadership position and wish to assure him of our prayers for God to continue to bless his ministry with good success.

“God has brought you to the right place where you can surrender, renew, rejuvenate, and recommit your whole being to a God who is anxiously waiting to meet you where you are!” said Mrs. Jacqueline Gibson, women’s ministries director of the South Bahamas Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in her welcome to the ladies from across the Atlantic Caribbean Union (ATCU) territory attending the union’s Women’s Ministries Retreat held during the weekend of October 20-22, 2017, at the Melia Resort in Nassau, Bahamas. This year’s retreat, hosted by the South Bahamas Conference, was under the theme “Fulfilling my Purpose.” Among the almost 300 attendees were ladies from other denominations as well as from the Adventist conferences and mission in the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Mrs. Denise Johnson, women’s ministries director of ATCU, in her welcome message invited attendees to use the weekend to focus on God and His purpose for their lives as noted in the theme text for the retreat, Jeremiah 29:11. “Are you aware of the plans God has for you? And, if you are, have you accepted them and are walking according to His purpose?” she asked.

Bringing greetings on the opening night were Pastor Paul Scavella, president of the South Bahamas Conference, and Dr. Cheryl Rolle, associate secretary of ATCU, who spoke on behalf of the president of ATCU, Pastor Leonard Johnson.


The speaker for this power-packed weekend was Ms. Linda Anderson, dean of women at Oakwood University. At the commencement of the retreat, she spoke to the attendees on the topic “
Peculiar Women of Purpose,” showcasing women who by the world’s standards were not considered suitable, but for whom God had a purpose.

Throughout the weekend, the women in attendance were reminded of the biblical principles that point them toward discovering and fulfilling their purpose in God. On Sabbath afternoon, time was carved out specifically for the GEMS (Girls Empowered for Ministry and Service) in attendance where they openly discussed issues and were given guidance on how to find and fulfill their purpose as young women.

The weekend concluded with a moving pinning ceremony where women were encouraged to continue to fulfill God’s plan for their lives.
