Association of Independent Baptist Churches

The Association of Independent Baptist Churches in Jamaica is a ministry that Jamaica Link is closely affiliated with. Many churches in the association are in need of assistance; both financial and structural. Pastors are underpaid and the churches in general struggle to adequately serve the congregation/community. Jamaica Link seek to improve the churches by creating partnerships between these churches and churches in North America and through the use of short-term mission trips.

Teams have assisted churches with VBS, building projects and community outreach.  JLM currently facilitates the support of two churches; McField Baptist and Mt. Stewart Baptist.
