The new executive was appointed on Sunday, June 12, during an installation service at Kingdom Dominion International Church, located in Millennium Heights (Phase 2), Wheeland Providenciales.

Pastor Alces Dor has been appointed First Vice President, Pastor Oscar Talbot has been selected as the Second Vice President, Pastor Coral Skippings has been named Treasurer, Pastor Janet Stubbs given the position of Secretary General, Apostle Ruth Ariza is the Public Relations Officer, while Pastor H Martinez and Bishop Solomon Morrency have been appointed trustees of the body.

In accepting the position, Jennings told the gathering that the Turks and Caicos Islands Christian Council would endeavor to be the moral compass of the country, and to whip into line the things that are out of line. He said it is also established to ensure that there is good governance regardless of who, and which party is in power.

“Our main focus is to be the moral conscience of this nation. We have to stand for righteousness, for holiness and call it as it is, no matter who is in power…we stand for God,” Jennings affirmed.

Bishop George Fulford delivering the sermon.

He said while the Turks and Caicos Islands has demonstrated itself as an ultra-religious society, there was no power behind that religiosity, as the church continued to cower in the things which it ought to be bold. He also stated that there were many among us who need deliverance, as they have been imprisoned with various ills, and so, it is time for the church to get active.

“We are a very religious people, but it is time for us to be people of power, people who know how to pray, because there are so many who have been oppressed and bound-up, and need deliverance. But the church has been afraid to bring that kind of deliverance,” he said.

Pastor Jennings’ utterance was an echo from Bishop George Fulford, who earlier delivered the sermon, during which he urged the men of the cloth to get back to the business of healing and prophesying.

Bishop Fulford also encouraged unity among the churches, encouraging immediate past president Cox to ensure that he gives the new body, led by Jennings, all the assistance it would need.

The new president, during his acceptance speech, revealed that Cox, who was absent from the event, had given him his blessing and promised to be there to lend assistance where necessary.

Minister in charge of Religious Affairs Hon. Josephine Connolly, who attended the event, stated that the Turks and Caicos Islands needs a strong Christian Council, and so, she would be do everything in her power to ensure that the body gets the support it needs.

The installation of officers was led by Bishop Coleta A. Williams of the Abundant Life Ministries International Church in Providenciales. The charge was given by Bishop Dr. Jacqueline McCollough.
