    History

    Leaders of the Church have made several visits to Barbados since 1950, but it was 1978 before the first baptism of a Church member there took place. Greg Young, a young convert from Scotland, shared his new found faith with friends John and June Naime and Norman and Gema Naime. The Naimes were baptized on 16 April 1978.

    In 1979 the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission was formed. It included Barbados and other islands of the Caribbean. Barbados was officially opened for missionary work in September 1979. The Christ Church Branch (a small congregation) was organized 20 October 1979.

    When the West Indies Mission was opened in 1983, it was headquartered in Barbados. In 1994, headquarters of the West Indies Mission were transferred from Barbados to Trinidad.

    The Barbados Bridgetown Mission was created July 1, 2015, from the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo East Mission and the West Indies Mission.
