Connecting People. Facilitating Ministry. Empowering Leaders
Jamaica Link Ministries (JLM) was founded in 2001 to connect Jamaican leaders and Christian organizations with churches around the world that are willing to come alongside them and support the work they are doing in their local communities. JLM is a non-profit organization that acts as an umbrella under which many ministries in Jamaica can get the assistance they need to flourish. These include local churches, Fairview Baptist Bible College, Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf, Robin’s Nest Children’s Home, Child Evangelism Fellowship, and many local public schools, orphanages and community organizations.
By connecting churches and individuals in North America with organizations in Jamaica, long-term partnerships have been formed to ensure that the established local ministries remain (or once again become) healthy and able to fulfill their ministry here in Jamaica. We are always looking to form additional partnerships with churches and individuals that feel called to work alongside us in supporting these local ministries.
Short-term missions groups provide much needed assistance and encouragement for local ministries, orphanages and schools. Financial support from individuals and churches is another essential part of rejuvenating the existing churches and Christian organizations here.
In 2001, Jamaica Link Ministries founded Fairhaven Ministry Empowerment Centre to house short-term missions groups that are coming to work in Jamaica. Fairhaven provides a central base of operation for many missions groups. Fairhaven is ideally located a few miles from the airport and 30 steps from the ocean. The accommodations at Fairhaven cater to missions groups, featuring connected rooms, kitchenettes, a common living and dining area for meals and group devotions as well as affordable rates.
Today Jamaica Link Ministries is committed to rejuvenating and furthering the influence of existing ministries in Jamaica. JLM is looking to link short-term missions groups with the abundant needs in Jamaica. By discussing the talents or focus of your group or church, we can connect you with organizations in Jamaica that most need your help.
