Jamaica and Cayman Islands

Mission worker: Jo Ella Holman, regional liaison for the Caribbean


Nicole Ashwood, International peacemaker from Jamaica, says peacemaking requires a ‘willingness to journey with the other person’

For the first time the Bible is being translated into Jamaican patois.


The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) relates to our partner churches of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands through the Caribbean and North American Council for Mission (CANACOM. Through mission personnel the PC(USA) shares our partners’ goals for theological training, teacher and administrative training for the church’s primary and secondary schools, and mission education through interaction with mission groups.

Our partners all grew from the union of different churches, and the PC(USA) is encouraged in our interaction with these partners.
