Pastor Kent Andrew Price was born in Nassau, Bahamas to Mr. Kendal [deceased] and Mrs. Mellie Price. After completing high school in the Bahamas, he developed two professional trades: Body Mechanic and Masonry. His interest in ministry led him to West Indies College (now Northern Caribbean University) in Mandeville, Jamaica where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology with a minor in Biblical Languages in 1990. In 2003, he graduated from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan with a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree.
Pastor Price has served the Adventist Church in the Bahamas for 26 years as a full-time colporteur; chaplain and physical education teacher at the elementary division of Bahamas Academy; church pastor; conference associate community services director; community services director; and conference youth director. His contribution to the Bahamian community has included volunteering as a member of the National Emergency Management Agency and the Juvenile Advisory Panel in Abaco, Bahamas. He is a marriage officer and a certified chaplain trained to serve at educational institutions.
Pastor Price’s love for mission and preaching has taken him to Pretoria, South Africa, the USA, and the islands of the Caribbean. He is currently enrolled in a doctoral program at the Inter-American Division Theological Seminary.
In August 2017, Pastor Price was elected to the position of youth, personal ministries, and stewardship director for the Atlantic Caribbean Union comprised of the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
He is married to Alree, a high school teacher whose area of specialization is Home Economics and Craft. They have 4 children: Kentalicia, Ken-Reesha, Kentanay and Ken-Tayja.
The publishing ministries department of the Seventh-day Adventist Church exists to proclaim, through the printed and electronic media, the gospel of hope to the whole world.
Motto: “Bringing Hope Into Every Home.”
The department aims to:
- Recruit, train, and motivate literature evangelists to live transformed lives in Christ.
- Uplift and dignify people through better living – spiritually, physically, and socially- thus preparing them for the world to come.
- Strengthen and equip everyone, through training, to share the good news of Jesus and His second coming.
- Strengthen personal faith through the spiritual nurture that comes from sharing the light with others.
E. G. White says, “There are many places in which the voice of the minister cannot be heard, places which can be reached only by our publications, the books, papers, and tracts filled with the Bible truths that the people need.” She has also reminded us that “This is the very work that God would have His people do at this time …. introducing our publications into families, conversing, and praying with and for them – is a good work.” “Our canvassers are to be God’s evangelists, going from house to house in out-of-the-way places and opening the Scriptures to those they meet.” “God calls for workers from every church among us to enter His service as canvasser evangelists.” (CM 6, 7, 39, 20)
