Hello reader. My name is Paul Nembhard, a Christian of 5 years. I was born and raised in Kingston Jamaica but have been living in New York City for about half my life. I’ve been married now for 4 years to a beautiful Ghanaian queen and we have two children together. I love to create poetry and music and I shoot photography and do graphic design from time to time. I’m a faithful follower of Christ, a reader, a thinker, and a budding Christian apologetic. With this new blog, I hope to make Caribbereans.
But what is a Caribberean? Simple, it’s a mix of two words; Caribbean and Berean. According to the Book of Acts Chapter 17 verse 11, Paul and Silas preached at Berea, and the inhabitants “… received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”, and many of them believed. So in essence, a Berean is known as one who studies, and reads for him or herself to see if God’s word matches up to what is being preached.
So my purpose for starting this blog is to create a community for a specific type of people, Caribbean Christians. The aim is to highlight our cultures art, music, poetry, and to challenge our faith with proper doctrine and biblical theology. I don’t know it all or claim to, but I know I have a passion to share the Word and I feel a strong need to invite people to join me on my journey to build up Bereans from the Caribbean. In the words of Jesus, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” So hopefully God will allow people to be transformed and encouraged and ministered to from this blog site.
Help me, help you.
