The North Caribbean Conference (NCC) of Seventh-day Adventists (SDA) announced that, Pastor Kendrick A. Glasgow Jr., and Pastor Ray L. Edwards will begin their pastoral internships on September 1, 2019.

The NCC Ministerial Association is pleased to welcome Pastor Glasgow to pastoral ministry on St. Thomas.  Pastor Glasgow was born on St. Thomas and grew up on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) where he attended the BVI Seventh-day Adventist School and was a member of the East End SDA Church.  He is a product of Adventist Christian Education and graduated with a degree in Theology from Oakwood University in May, 2019. He testified that pursuing his undergraduate degree increased his faith in Jesus Christ and his love for the Church.  As a result, he is confident that God’s plan for his life entails pastoral ministry and teaching. His mission statement is, Reveal, Resemble and Reflect The Character of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Glasgow understands the importance of hard work and possesses the innate abilities to work with others and, most importantly, to take care of members.  Among the gifts that God has blessed him with are pastoral care, preaching, teaching, music and effectively working with others. He is a reliable, honest and hardworking individual who believes in giving his best.  He has actively led a congregation through a three-week evangelistic campaign and experienced the joy of seeing individuals accept Christ. He has also shared in the devotional ministry at the NCC Senior Youth Camp. Pastor Glasgow is dedicated and passionate about the salvation of souls.  He is a team player and a wonderful Christian – we expect him to make a significant contribution to ministry.  Pastor Glasgow has been assigned to District #3, St. Thomas (Shiloh and New Horizon congregations), under the mentorship of Pastor Noel James.

The NCC Ministerial Association is also delighted to welcome Pastor Edwards into the ranks of ministry on Tortola.  The members look forward to embracing their new intern, who is expected to arrive on the island long in advance of the September 1st assignment date. Pastor Edwards is a longstanding, dedicated and successful lay evangelist who is well-known throughout the NCC territory for his unwavering confidence in God and the Seventh-day Adventist Church.  He holds degrees from the University of the Southern Caribbean and the University of the West Indies in Chemistry and Physics. Pastor Edwards also earned a Masters of Divinity Degree at Andrews University.

Pastor Edwards was born on the island of St. Kitts and is a second-generation Seventh-day Adventist, with wide experience in Adventist ministry. Among his several engagements, he has served as Adventist Youth Leader, First Elder and Lay Activities Leader at congregations with which he has been associated.  He has successfully served in several evangelistic efforts as a Bible Worker, Lay Pastor and Assistant Pastor in Florida, Michigan, New York, New England, Pennsylvania and internationally.  While serving as a teacher at the St. Croix Seventh-day Adventist School in 2019, Pastor Edwards accepted the call to active pastoral ministry in the North Caribbean Conference. Pastor Edwards and his wife Dalice, who is also an educator, have been happily married for 24 years and are proud parents of five gifted children.  Pastor Edwards is assigned to District #1, Tortola (Road Town and Sweet Redemptive congregations), under the mentorship of Pastor Sylvester Williams.

The Administration and leadership of the North Caribbean Conference welcome these interns into ministry. We praise God for their dedication and humility in offering themselves to God for service and pray that God would grant them the empowerment needed for effective ministry.
