Exciting News: Our medical mission partners from Carron Hall
United Church, Saint Mary, Jamaica will be visiting Cape
Girardeau, the week of April 7-10, 2015. The delegation will be

something about herself.
Profile of Carlene Walford (Rev)
My name is Carlene Walford, I was born in Highgate St. Mary
in a family of nine (9). I am married with two children.
I received my calling to full time ministry in 2006 and
started seminary in 2007. I attended the United
Theological College of the West Indies where I graduated with
a Diploma in Ministerial studies and B.A. in Theology (Hons.)
I was ordained in November 2012 and have been serving the
Carron Hall Charge since September 2011. The Carron Hall
Charge is consisted of three (3) congregations namely: Carron
Hall, Seafield and Cedar Valley.
At Carron Hall and Seafield I am a member of the primary
schools board and the Chaplin for Carron Hall High, Carron
Hall and Seafield primary schools. I am also on the
advisory committee at the Carron hall high school where I am a
member of the spiritual advisory team for the school. The
Pringle Home for Children is a children’s home that is
operated by the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman
Island. It is situated in Carron Hall and I am the
Chaplin there as well as a board member.
In August 2014 I visited Canada on a Caribbean Workers
Outreach Project (CWOP) organized by the United Church in
Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. There I spent five (5) weeks,
visited with a number of farms, ministered and impacted the
spiritual lives of the farm workers. I also visited and
preached in a number of churches of varied denominations.
Serving people is something that I enjoy immensely; hence, the
pastoral aspect of ministry is where my passion lies.
This area in my ministry gives me a sense of fulfillment as I
visit with, counsel and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with
individuals. It is my philosophy that if they are
God’s people then they need to be served; it doesn’t matter
the socio-economic circumstances, geography or physical
My personal motto is – The Steps of a good
man/woman are ordered by God- My Steps are ordered.
I do believe that He who has started a good thing in you
will see you through to the end, for with God all things
