CSI Ministries Jamaica has teams down many weeks during the year to serve in some capacity in the St. Mary’s Parish area of Jamaica – from VBS to House Builds and evangelism. For over 50 years we’ve served in the area near Highgate- faithfully.
Several teams were lined up to come down and in March when COVID-19 hit, the entire world changed quickly – eliminating the opportunity for travel into the country. Our missionaries and staff there have been safe and healthy. They are serving to meet the needs as they can, but are also in need of work.
A ‘virtual build‘ takes place over a 4-day span and the family that receives this blessing is overjoyed! Our staff is thankful for the work as our ministry continues.

Click through each section and see what we did to ‘achieve’ connection via Zoom videos and deliver this home to a family in need.
We are praying that virtual builds will keep our staff engaged and employed until our teams can return. And the list of families waiting for homes is in the hundreds! Since the late 80’s CSI has been able to provide basic shelter for hundreds of families. We are thankful that even in the midst of a pandemic, with the internet and some creative planning – our ministry is continuing.
