Don’t preach for a pay cheque, clergy warned

President of the Jamaica Union Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Pastor Everett Brown, has warned his clergy members against joining the ministry, just to ensure a monthly salary.

“If you interpret your ministry as one that will guarantee you your pay cheque at the end of the month, pastors, then your ministries will become a pay cheque ministry,” cautioned Pastor Brown.

“You would be a slave or a servant of the West Jamaica Conference, you will become a slave to pay cheque, a slave to position, a slave to recognition, a slave to affirmation for new leaders, colleagues and members. If those things drive you, then pastoral ministry is not your vocation.”

On the other hand, he explained that if the pastors see themselves as messengers of the most high, then their ministries will be rewarding.
