Over 4,000 adventurers, Pathfinders, Ambassadors, and Young Adults convened at Trelawny Stadium from April 18-22nd under the theme “Youth Engaged in Action for Jesus.” The highlight of the Jamboree was the various community services that were done on Sabbath afternoon and the baptism which took place on the final day of the event. Six young people were baptized.

Pako Mokgwane of the General Conference and Felecia Datus of the Center for Online Evangelism were the main guest speakers. IAD was represented by Samuel Telemaque. The Jamboree was organized by Dane Fletcher, Jamaica Union Conference Youth Director and his team of Conference Youth Directors. The Union Officers and Conference officers supported the event. They encouraged the Youth to receive and run with the baton of identity, mission, and leadership so that “Youth Engaged in Action for Jesus” may be a reality. #YEA4Jesus
