Pastor Everett Brown was re-elected as president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church by delegates at the third (second quinquennial) session of the Jamaica Union Conference. Pastor Brown has been serving as head of the church since November 2010 and will continue to do so until 2025 when the current term expires.
