Jamaican clergy for induction into Hall of Prophets, Pentecostal Theology Seminary

USA — Glowing tr
ibutes, commendations, and congratulations are pouring in to the Davie Community Worship Center (DCWC), South Florida, for a beloved bishop, Dr Fedlyn Beason and wife Esmie, who will be inducted into the Hall of Prophets (HoP) of the Church of God (CoG) Pentecostal Theology Seminary later this year.

The surprise announcement was made during the regular worship service at the DCWC, Pembroke Pines, Florida, last October by Elder Fred McLeod.

And, since the announcement, the congregation has been busy with plans for the HoP induction ceremony which will take place on Sunday, December 4 in the afternoon at the DCWC with the top brass of the Pentecostal Seminary and invited guests from the faith-based community worldwide in attendance.

“This is indeed a prestigious achievement worthy of commendation and is in recognition to the years of Christian service to the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ that bishop has given,” offered Elder McLeod.

According to a notice posted in the church bulletin, such an honour and recognition is reserved for ministers whose service to Jesus Christ and the Church of God has been meritorious.

The HoP provides recognition and affirmation of worthy ministers.

A highly decorated and recognised clergy, Bishop Dr Beason has been privileged to receive numerous awards, including a national award for Outstanding Community Service from the prime minister of Jamaica in 1998.

Bishop Fedlyn Arthniel Beason is a second-generation minister of the gospel, son of the late Hartley Beason (farmer and authorised constable) and his wife Therisa of Croft’s Hill, Clarendon.

He was converted to Christianity at the age of 15 and began Christian service a year later. His formal Christian ministry, which began with his first pastoral appointment in 1962, spans more than 50 years and has been characterised as that of tenacity, visionary innovativeness, and consummate leadership.

After serving for many years as local pastor and district overseer, he served as administrative bishop of the New Testament Church of God in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands for an unprecedented eight years (1990-1998).

In 1998 Bishop Beason was promoted to the position of field director for the Church of God Caribbean World Missions (overseeing 49 countries), where he gave 14 years of unprecedented service (1998–2012).

Currently, Bishop Beason is a registered family counsellor, marriage officer, and notary public in the state of Florida, USA. He has been married for more than 50 years to Esmine, nee James, an educator.

He is a church growth consultant, who works out of Florida, and continues pastoral ministry as founder and senior pastor for the Davie Community Worship Centre in South Florida, serving a decidedly Jamaican/Caribbean congregation.

He holds a Master of Literature (MLitt) degree from the European Theological Seminary (1995) and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) from said European Theological Seminary (1998).

Twice elected to the International Executive Council of the Church of God, Bishop Dr Beason’s literary credits include The Eschatological and Apocalyptic Realities of Pentecostalism; The Church, Its Permanence & Stability, and Life in the Spirit, penned in the 1990s.

Dr Beason is the father of two and a proud grandfather of four.

Meanwhile, a very important feature of the HoP is the establishment of a scholarship in honour of the nominees, which will be a perpetual source of funding for students preparing for ministry at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary.
