The Evangelical Association of the Caribbean EAC, has appointed its first ever Deputy Secretary General with responsibility for Development. Effective 1st June 2022, Mr. Clovis St. Romain of the EAC’s Antiguan affiliate has taken up the lead role in the Association’s newly created resource development department.

 

A former President of JCI West Indies and current Treasurer of the Antigua-Barbuda Evangelical Alliance (ABEA), Clovis brings to the EAC a wealth of experience in the business world, experience which he gained during more than thirty years in management level positions in companies operating in the commercial sectors in Guyana, St. Kitts Nevis and his adopted home of Antigua-Barbuda.

 

That experience will serve him well in this new role, where he will head up the EAC’s Fund-Raising programme and its efforts to garner the resources needed for its operational arm as well as the many service Commissions and agencies which the Organisation expects to begin rolling out across the Region over the next few months.

 

Speaking of the historic appointment, the EAC’s long-serving Secretary General, Bishop Emerson Boyce described it as “one of several major moves that the Association will be making in our drive to fulfill the outcomes contained in our Roadmap 2023 Strategic Plan”.

 

Mr. Boyce continued: “Clovis has been integrally involved in the EAC’s revitalisation plans which began a few years ago and brings with him a level of passion, knowledge and experience that will serve us and our stakeholders very well as we roll out the tremendous programme that the Lord has given us for transformation of our Caribbean Region”!

The Evangelical Association of the Caribbean (EAC) calls on the Church in the Caribbean to pray for all who suffer and for those who have the power to save lives, bring humanitarian aid and protection and for restoration of peace in Ukraine. We also call upon Christians in the Caribbean to pray for those with the power to stop the war and to bring about peace.

The EAC joins with the European Evangelical Alliance (EEA) in condemning the violation of international law by Russia and calling for an immediate end to the attacks on Ukraine. Together, we call for respect to the Ukrainian territorial integrity, an end to the hostilities, an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine.

Commenting on the continuing situation, Thomas Bucher, General Secretary of the EEA, said, “Both Russia and Ukraine are sovereign nations, having the right to live without fear of attack but also having a duty to live peaceably as neighbors. Given the political and military developments over the past several years, each side may perceive the other as a threat but there is absolutely no justification for the Russian government to continue its interference in Eastern Ukraine or even start an invasion.”

The invasion of Ukraine is both unjustified and unprovoked. Europe has witnessed the horrors of war in the past and has learned that armed conflict and military occupation only bring devastation and suffering. Let us pray for peace between Ukraine and Russia amid the increasing tensions.

Rev. Emerson Boyce, Secretary General of the Evangelical Association of the Caribbean (EAC) commented: “Sir Lester Bird, a great son of the soil, contributed significantly to the socio–economic development of Antigua and Barbuda. Caribbean leaders acclaim as the architect of modern Antigua, responsible for successfully transitioning the country from an economy dependent on a defunct sugar industry into one of the leading tourism centres in the world.”

Under his stewardship, Antigua and Barbuda became a high–income country, transforming the quality of jobs, housing, and introducing high–end tourist resorts.

He was a keen sportsman, with a great passion for cricket and a superb pace bowler. He represented Antigua and the West Indies and won a bronze medal for long jump at the 1957 Pan American Games.

Sir Lester, a committed regionalist, was highly instrumental in establishing the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). He was a great orator and a progressive thinker whose vast experience and political knowledge served the people of the Caribbean well in the councils of CARICOM.

We are praying for his family, friends and the nation of Antigua and Barbuda during this difficult time.
