Whittington Heritage Educational Fund

Caribbean

Located in Jamaica, Bethel Bible College is teaching and producing a living legacy of pastors and ministers. Registered with the University Council of Jamaica and certified by the Church of God Education Department, Bethel and its extensions offer varying degrees and certificates in theology, Christian ministry, counseling, and social work. Students are exposed to a holistic approach of learning as the organization strives to “advance the Kingdom of God by producing spiritually equipped, socially aware, morally sound, and servant-oriented individuals who will contribute to the transformation of the church and the world.”

The Whittington Family has embarked on an endeavor to endow scholarships for students of Bethel Bible College of the Caribbean. Rev. A.B. and Gladys Whittington served for over 50 years with the Church of God in pastoral and evangelistic ministry. The example set by them impacted their family to continue ministry and to provide a living legacy.

Their son, Reverend Jim Whittington, has long held a place in his heart for the people of the Caribbean. The scholarship endowment is meant to honor the Whittington family’s tenderness for the people of Jamaica and the Caribbean by providing a means of producing educated ministers who are equipped to plant churches and reach communities.
