Jo Ella Holman

Serving Christ in the Dominican Republic

As regional liaison for the Caribbean, Jo Ella Holman’s ministry focuses on churches in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, Curacao, Grenada and Trinidad & Tobago. She works closely with the Caribbean and North America Council for Mission (CANACOM), an organization that enables mutual mission among churches from the two regions. Her ministry involves facilitating and supporting programs of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) partner churches and organizations and implementing regional strategies. She also works with mission personnel in the region by communicating regularly with them, offering them counsel and encouragement and helping them reflect on and assess their ministries. She also works with PC(USA) congregations and presbyteries in the United States involved in partnerships with Christians in the Caribbean.

“God has provided me the opportunity to live or work in many different countries,” Jo Ella says, “and has given me a love for the church and for the people of God’s good earth and a desire and opportunity for service through the church.”
