As President of the SDB Missionary Society, I am pleased to announce that we have hired someone for the open position of Missions Coordinator! Please join us in prayer for our newest member of this ministry team, Pastor Garfield Miller. If the transition goes smoothly, Garfield will begin his work with us on March 15, 2013.
Pastor Garfield Miller is married with two young children. He will be relocating to Rhode Island from Copacabana, Bull Bay, St. Andrew, Jamaica. For several years, Garfield has served as Pastor at Bath SDB Church and Water Valley SDB Church in St. Thomas. He has also been serving as Co-Pastor at Greater Portmore SDB Church.
As a bi-vocational minister, Garfield has worked as a Guidance Counselor at Charlie Smith High School since 2008. Before counseling and ministry, he worked in telecommunications, cable, and wireless systems for several years.
Garfield holds a diploma in Management Studies from the Jamaica Institute of Management and a diploma in Biblical Studies from the Jamaica SDB Bible Institute. Also, he holds a B.A.in Theology and Guidance Counseling from Jamaica Theological Seminary and a M.S. in Counseling and Social Work from The Mico University College.
Garfield has held many offices and administrative positions with the Jamaican SDB Conference, including the conference Missions Committee. He comes highly recommended! In addition to his spiritual gifts and calling to ministry, we believe that Garfield has skills in organization, project management, communication, computer applications, and administration that will contribute much to the work of the society.
Rev. Dave Stall, President
