Elders' Baptism Sabbath

Year of the Laity 2013


On Sabbath, September 28, 2013, The Year of the Laity in the Inter-American Division reached an awesome peak at the Centreville Seventh-day Adventist Church, Nassau, The Bahamas, when six local elders baptized six precious souls.  The first elder, Todd Beneby said "It was truly a sobering experience."   With a packed church of over three hundred members, friends, and visitors, the baptisms were a special experience to all of the elders.   All eleven elders shared in the examination of the baptismal candidates and six, who worked with persons, baptized.  This was made possible through a special proclamation by the Inter-American Division for 50,000 local elder in the Division to baptize on this Sabbath.  Centreville was blessed to be a part of it.  The local elders who baptized were:  Todd Beneby, first elder;  Yvon Cherefant, Personal Ministries Director;  Freeman Duncanson, David Knowles, Oral Gibson, Harrison Moxey.    The sermon was delivered by a local elder, Clayton Forbes.  It was the final sermon in the month-long Sabbath emphasis called Elders on Fire.
