EJC Campsite named as JAMU Labour day Project
The East Jamaica Conference’s Phillipsfield Campsite received nationwide support on Monday when it was named as the Labour Day Project for Jamaica Union Conference this year by Pastor Everett Brown, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica. This was done at a JAMU summit with Pastors and church leaders in Mandeville on March 9, 2015.
Phillipsfield Campsite to be one of the Best - Says Nathan
More than three hundred persons responded to the call by the East Jamaica Conference (EJC) leadership, to attend a workday at Phillipsfield in St. Thomas, to clear sections of the three hundred and sixty acre property in preparation for the building of Conference campsite. Volunteers from several churches in the constituency came from the four zones in support of the new drive to begin work at the campsite, which have remained only a dream for more than ten years.
