Project: Jamaica Mission

Project ID: JM0003-66302 

Lutheran Hour Ministries radio contacts in the 1990s helped kickstart LCMS efforts in Jamaica, which have since transitioned from North American missionaries to the capable hands of Alliance Missionary Rev. Obot Ite.

Worlds away from glistening resort meccas, two church plants thrive in the capital, Kingston. Members of St. Andrew Lutheran Church gather at the conveniently situated Kingston Ministry Centre. The facility doubles as office space, volunteer lodging, and the headquarters of Lutheran Ministries in Jamaica (LMJ), the LCMS’s umbrella NGO.

Faith Lutheran Church’s rented facility, increasingly filled with families from nearby Parade Gardens Lutheran School, is a beacon in the city’s downtown core. LMJ rescued the school from certain closure in 2019, sparking a robust Christian education campaign that will define the future of Spreading the Gospel, Planting Lutheran Churches, and Showing Mercy. Jamaica’s developing FORO partnership circle hopes to provide PGLS its own building.

LMJ also encompasses preaching points in the rural community of Bois Content, and in Westmoreland Parish, both west of Kingston. By God’s grace, the faithful there will one day join His family through Holy Baptism.
