Graham Power, the Christian South African billionaire, who is founder and chairman of the highly successful civil engineering and real estate development company Power Group, will be visiting Jamaica from Wednesday, February 11, to Monday, February 16, as a guest of Wycliffe Bible Translators Caribbean.

During his visit, Power will hold a series of meetings with local business and church leaders.

Since becoming a professing Christian in 1999, Power has introduced and spearheaded at least two major African-based and globally accepted initiatives, namely the 'Global Day of Prayer' and the 'Unashamedly Ethical Campaign' to promote ethics in business.

These two initiatives have gained much recognition worldwide, with the latter producing the formation of hundreds of 'Unashamedly Ethical' communities established around the world.

During his visit to the island, Power will introduce the Unashamedly Ethical campaign to both Christian and non-Christian communities. He will present the concept of the programme to government leaders on Monday, February 16, at a meeting of the Cabinet, where he has been invited to conduct devotions that morning.

Power is also expected to pay courtesy calls on Governor General Sir Patrick Allen and the leader of the opposition. Activities have been planned by Wycliffe Bible Translators Caribbean for Power to meet with the island's Christian, business, and civic leaders.

 

BREAKFAST MEETING

 

Some of these activities are a pastors' breakfast meeting and a business leaders' luncheon. The South African business mogul will be the keynote speaker at an Unashamedly Ethical Forum at the Guardian Life Conference Room.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for Wycliffe Caribbean to bring the message of ethics to our island as a direct outflow from translated scripture, and we look forward to the business and civic communities receiving it with open arms and committing to practising the tenets of the Unashamedly Ethical initiative," said John Roomes, CEO of Wycliffe Bible Translators Caribbean.
