The Spiritual Need in Jamaica

Jamaica is known for its significant global influence in music, culture, and athletics—despite its small size—with a population of just under three million people living on the Caribbean island.

Rastafarianism, which uses Christian language syncretized with African traditional religions, has been a religious and cultural movement in Jamaica since the 1930s. Yet while making a large cultural impact, it is represented by only a very small portion of the population today. The majority of Jamaicans consider themselves Christian, with 30% identifying as evangelical believers. Jamaica also has small Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist populations, due in part to emigration by generations of Chinese and Indian laborers for work on the island.

Religious diversity in Jamaica has allowed for the acceptance of evangelism, church planting and ministries among a number of people and age groups.

ABWE in Jamaica

The ABWE team in Jamaica trains national pastors, strengthens evangelical congregations, and assists Jamaican pastors in planting local churches.

We need team members who have experience building relationships, sharing the gospel, making disciples and teaching sound theology in order to continue to strengthen the local church in Jamaica. Skills in accounting, business, construction, administration, youth ministry, and music are also valuable assets.
