Pastor Andrew Burrows

As a forerunner to the special Vision One Million Sabbath scheduled for Sabbath, April 4, six pastors from the Atlantic Caribbean Union (ATCU) are presently conducting short evangelistic campaigns in various countries within the Caribbean Union (CARU). Vision One Million is the soul-winning initiative of the Inter-American Division (IAD) of Seventh-day Adventists. This year, scores of evangelists from the various unions within IAD, including ATCU, have been dispersed throughout the Caribbean Union to share the good news of the gospel.

Pastor Johnson

The evangelistic team from ATCU is led by Pastor Leonard Johnson, president of ATCU, who is declaring the gospel at the Signs of the Times Evangelistic Series being held at the Carmel SDA Church in George Town, Guyana. At the Kingstown SDA Church in St. Vincent, the Grenadines, Pastor Henry R. Moncur, executive secretary of the North Bahamas Conference, is the guest evangelist. Pastor Paul Scavella, South Bahamas Conference (SBC) president, and Pastor Peter Joseph, SBC executive secretary, are blowing the gospel trumpet on the islands of St. Croix in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Grenada, respectively. Finally, Pastor Andrew Burrows, personal ministries director for ATCU, is conducting a series of meetings at the Philadelphia SDA church in St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands (USVI).


On Sabbath, April 4, at the conclusion of the many evangelistic meetings, union and field leaders along with the visiting evangelists will assemble on the island of Trinidad, the location of the headquarters for the Caribbean Union, for a grand Sabbath celebration. Pastor Mark Finely, one of the general vice- presidents of the General Conference of SDA, will be the main speaker.

Visiting Evangelists

At the conclusion of the Sabbath service, a baptismal ceremony will be conducted at the site in Trinidad while concurrent baptisms will take place across the IAD territory and streamed live to the site in Trinidad. This momentous celebration can be viewed live on three different media: in English on Hope Church Channel; in Spanish on Esperanza TV; and in French at

In the Atlantic Caribbean Union, the Hillview Seventh-day Adventist church in Nassau in the South Bahamas Conference will serve as the uplink center for the baptisms that will be streamed from the ATCU.
