The Men’s Ministries Department of the Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists recently held its Men’s Convention, using the theme “Men of God, Men of Change”. This event was held Virtually on Friday evening, June 3 and on Sabbath, June 4, in-person worship at the North Side Civic Center.
Three hosts chaired the virtual session on Friday. During that time, men from various churches in the Cayman Islands Conference had an opportunity to participate as Men in Praise, Men in Prayer and Men in Testimony. The programme was broadcast Live and delayed on Youtube @CICMediaky, CATV and Praise87.9 FM. This live broadcast attracted viewers in the Cayman Islands, our neighbouring Caribbean Islands, and North and Central America. President of the Cayman Islands Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Pastor Reinaldo Dracket, addressed the convention expressing his support for the programme and conveying best wishes to the conference men.
The guest Presenter for the two days (June 3-4) was Dr Shion O’Connor. On Friday evening, his topic was “Men of God, are we still in the Faith?” On June 4, men from around Grand Cayman converged at the North Side Civic Center for the programme, which began at 9 AM. At the start, attendees had the opportunity for praise and prayer and participated in an engaging Bible Study (Sabbath School Lesson). Following this was a wrap session titled ‘Man Talk’, where men expressed their views about the importance of family and the positive results of verbally expressing love to spouses and children. Dr O’Connor, the guest presenter, delivered the main presentation with illustrations from the Bible of what Men of Change can accomplish when they are faithful to God.
The afternoon session featured presentations in two areas of ministry – “Men in Ministry: Try Digital Evangelism”, conducted by Devarro Whittaker, and “Men in Leadership” by Edris Ocho, who challenged men on “Static or Dynamic Exit”. Finally, the day came to an end with a grand social.
The Men’s Ministries Director, Pastor Vaughan Henry, and his team thank almighty God for his blessings and guidance throughout this program. He also thanks all who contributed to making the Men’s Convention 2022 a reality. It is hoped that the experience gained will further promote the Mission of challenging men to develop a firmer commitment to God, a more robust dedication to their families, and a desire to share their faith with others.
