For the past nine years.
J.U.M.P. Ministries Global
Church (JMGC), a part of
J.U.M.P. Ministries Missions, a
holistic Gospel Outreach Ministry
addressing the needs of the
whole man, annually has held a
variety of free events featuring
tasty dishes from countries round
the world in the area of its home
church in Orlando, Florida.
Headquartered at 2550 West
Colonial Drive, Suite 300, Orlando,
JMGC is headed by
Grand Bahama native Dr.
Durone Hepburn and his wife
Lady Phuong, and according to
Dr. Hepburn, the Ministry is “especially
focused on the outcasts
and dispossessed of society, addressing
their needs, both physical
and spiritual, and bringing
real relief to their dire situations.”
For its tenth annual event, the
Ministry has decided to go international
and, according Dr. Hepburn,
there is “no better place to
start internationally than in the
founder’s birthplace of Freeport,
Grand Bahama.”
The Grand Bahama event is
slated for Freeport, on July 30,
2016, when a JUMP “team along
with hundreds of visitors and
participants will descend on
Grand Bahama bringing an international
smorgasbord of foods,
drinks and giveaways for the
people of Grand Bahama.”
According to the organizers, “a
brand-new car will be given
away free, as well, to the lucky
winner during the event.”
During a visit to New York, Dr.
Hepburn and Lady Hepburn
gave a briefing on the event to
His Excellency Dr. Elliston Rahming,
Bahamas Ambassador to
the United States and the Organization
of American States
(OAS), and the Hon. Forrester
Carroll, Bahamas Consul General
to New York, during a courtesy
call on the two Bahamian
diplomats at Bahamas House,
231 East 46th. Street, on Monday,
May 2, 2016.
