About the Ministry
Bay Life Baptist Church exist to meet people at their point of spiritual need, move them into a right relationship with God through His Holy Spirit and His Son Jesus Christ, and to mature them in their walk with God.
The church evangelizes the unsaved by proclaiming of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, educates believers in a manner consistent with the requirements of Holy Scripture, protects the church from false teaching according to Titus 3:9, provide foods and household items to those in their community, and engages the youth as the next generation of ambassadors for Christ.
Andrew and Tanesha, as Pastor and wife, also plan on furthering their studies in church ministries and counseling to meet the needs arising in their congregation and the wider Montego Bay area.
Meet the Pastor: Andrew
Andrew was born and raised in Kingston Jamaica. His mother was a Christian, but his father was not. Andrew grew up in a Pentecostal church, but eventually started to attend a Baptist church with his sister. One particular Sunday at this Baptist Church, the pastor was preaching from the Book of Revelation and Andrew truly understood the gospel for the first time. Andrew immediately became more involved in the church by singing in the choir, becoming an usher, and attending youth meetings. His desire was to become the youngest deacon at the church, but God had other plans.
One Sunday a guest preacher came to the church and asked Andrew if he was interested in full time ministry. Andrew wrestled with this question, but soon felt God’s call to ministry and enrolled in Fairview Baptist Bible College. During his time at Fairview Baptist Bible College, Andrew was mentored by an older pastor and was asked to be a part of a church plant in Montego Bay. Andrew, newly married to Tanesha, quickly agreed. The church that he helped plant, Bay Life Baptist Church, is now the one he pastors and he has seen God work in incredible ways through his own life and in the life of the church.
- Pray that God would continue to grow Bay Life Baptist Church and bless it’s ministry
- Pray for Andrew and Tanesha, as they further their theological education
- Pray for the warehouse that God has given them as a meeting place, and the ongoing renovation projects.
