Former West Indies Union Conference Worker, Barrington Sinclair, Passes

Former West Indies Union Conference worker, Barrington Sinclair, passed away to his rest on Friday, March 1, 2019 after years of illness. He was 62 years old.

Sinclair, who served as a Treasurer of the West Jamaica Conference (WJC) from 1986-1995, gave more than 37 years of service to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Jamaica.

The sudden passing of Bro, Barrington Sinclair, a faithful husband, father and worker of the church for many years, has been a painful experience for his wife Joidy, their children, and the wider Jamaica Union Conference (JAMU) family. We thank the Lord for the years of service that he allowed him to give to the church, said Pastor Everett Brown, president of the JAMU.”

“Joidy, you and your children will always be in our prayers and you can count on our support. In this moment of grief, we commend you to the grace, comfort and care of our gracious God and savior Jesus Christ,” Brown added.

Mr. Sinclair is survived by wife Joidy (a worker at Jamaica Union Conference), five children Chevaunne, Shari, Jamie, Daavid and Rojaney, daughter-in-law Asheba, two grand-children, brothers, sisters and other relatives and friends.

The funeral service for Barrington Sinclair will take place on March 31, 2019 at the Seventh-day Adventist Conference Centre, Mount Salem, St. James starting at 11:00 am. His body will be interned at the Hillview Memorial Gardens in Orange, St. James

    Heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family. I was blessed by Elder Sinclair’s ministry both as a co-worker for a brief period and as an Evangelist as he ministered at my home church.

    I remember vividly the times of refreshing when Evangelist Sinclair came in the anointing of the Lord to preach the Word of God. He impacted many to hear the voice of Jesus. My prayers and thoughts are with family and I grieve deeply because of the lost of Evangelist Sinclair. May the family be comforted by God in this their time of need.
