Our staff

Organizational Structure

Welcome to the St. Andrew church of Christ in Kingston, Jamaica.

As a matter of faith, we believe that our congregation is ultimately headed by Christ. This is important due to its scriptural precedence and also this reduces the undue influence of any one person or groups of people, thus contributing to our stability over the years. Our Evangelist is Alphonso Grennell. (He is the founder and Managing Director of Grennell’s Driving School, which has been in operation since 1999) The work of the church is accomplished through various Ministries/Committees, each of which has a leader and working committees. In this way, involvement and active participation is spread. The Ministries/Committees include, inter alia:

  • Evangelism
  • Benevolence
  • Education
  • The Melrose Primary and All-Age Breakfast and Devotion Programme
  • Youth Ministry
  • Ladies Ministry
  • Finance
