Our Pastoral Team

Pastor Jamie Joseph and his wife Sarah Joseph are the new pastoral team for St. John’s. They arrived in Newfoundland on July 1st following their graduation from Burman University in April 2018. Pastor Joseph completed a Bachelor of Arts in Theology/Religious Studies degree and Sarah Joseph completed a Bachelor of Arts in Behavioural Science.
Pastor Jamie has previously served as a student pastor, teacher’s assistant, small groups facilitator, and president of the theology club while attending Burman University.

Those familiar with the couple have shared that they are “a strong couple, complement each other, have long-term goals and follow through in planning”.

Jamie is “passionate about preaching the gospel, friendly, makes good connections with others and is an out-going youth leader.” Sarah aims to begin her career as a Child and Youth Worker here in St. Johns. She enjoys “community outreach projects, singing, writing and traveling, and feels blessed to be a part of her husband’s ministry”.

They hold to heart that their philosophy of ministry is to maintain a strong connection to Jesus and with unwavering boldness and love, share the good news of His soon coming return.

Both Jamie and Sarah are excited to be in St. John’s and are looking forward to seeing what God has in store for them as they work to glorify God and serve in this flourishing community.

  1. Hello
    I am visiting from Florida and went to visit your church today. I am surprised to find the
    Church locked up and. O service going on. There were four other visitors hoping to worship with you today. In all my years, this is the first time I have seen an Adventist church closed for worship on a sabbath. I am very disappointed.

    1. Doreen, I am so sorry you had this experience. We were closed that week so that everyone could attend Campmeeting at our campgrounds just outside town. Here on this website where you posted your comment, as well as on our Facebook page, we had announced a couple of weeks in advance that the St. John’s church would be closed July 21 and 28 for Campmeeting.

      Although it is quite common in smaller conferences for the local churches to close on Campmeeting weekend, we do recognize that sometimes out-of-town visitors may come without being aware of that, and may not have checked the website or Facebook page first. In future we will post a sign on the church door explaining why we are closed on Campmeeting weeks; while this won’t help with getting the message out in advance, it will at least let visitors know what is going on.

      Again, sorry for your bad experience.
