Structure and Administration

 

The Church of God (Seventh Day) is duly incorporated and registered in Jamaica with offices at 65 Carawina Avenue Kingston 20. It is affiliated with The General Conference of the Church of God (Seventh Day) Denver Colorado and is also a member of the International Ministerial Congress.
