NBC, ACUM Bid Bon Voyage to Pastor Ricardo Bain and Family

By Andrew Burrows

Recently, the North Bahamas Conference (NBC) and, by extension, the Atlantic Caribbean Union Mission (ACUM) bid farewell to Pastor Ricardo Bain, his wife, Tameka, and their children, Zoe and Ricardo Jr. Pastor Bain accepted a call to serve in the Greater New York Conference of SDA where he was installed as the pastor of the Queen’s Faith Temple SDA Church on September 1, 2012.
In his weekly communication to the membership of the North Bahamas Conference, posted on the conference’s website, Pastor Errol Tinker, president of the NBC, expressed appreciation for Pastor Bain’s dedicated service to the conference.

“I would like to embrace this opportunity, on behalf of the Administration, Departmental Directors, and the entire family of the North Bahamas Conference, to convey our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Pastor Ricardo V. Bain for his many years of faithful and dedicated service in the North Bahamas, at both the church and Conference levels, but especially at the Conference level, where his position in the vanguard of Youth Ministry significantly influenced the advancement and overall development of the work in the North Bahamas.”

Pastor Bain, until his departure, was the longest serving field youth director within the former West Indies Union and now the Atlantic Caribbean Union. He served as the youth director of NBC from 2003 until recently. In addition to youth director of NBC, he served as personal ministries director.

The administrators and departmental directors of ACUM join the North Bahamas Conference in expressing gratitude to Pastor Bain and family and offer continued prayer for them as they continue in ministry.
