National Christian Lifetime Awards (NCLA)

In 2008, for the first time in Jamaica, the NCLA Council, which was established in March 2008 embarked on its mandate to honour Matriarchs and Patriarchs in the Christian faith, who have given extended years of dedicated service to our nation.  The inaugural function was a great success and the Council, in collaboration with the NCLA Executive Board, is in the process of planning the 2009 ceremony.

It is our intention to honour at least fifteen (15) persons each year.  Your involvement is key in making this year’s ceremony a memorable one.  We will need your assistance in the selection process of the nominees and as such we invite you to nominate at least two (2) individuals from your organization/denomination/fraternal. 

These two (2) individuals should meet the following criteria in order to qualify for the award:

  1. Have been involved in ministry for more than forty (40) years.
  2. Because of their ministry, a profound impact has been made on the Body of Christ, at large.
  3. Are examples of those who are indeed Christians, not in word only, but also in character and lifestyle.
  4. Have dedicated their life to promoting the cause and forwarding the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  5. Will leave a legacy that reaches farther than just their local assembly, but is “noised abroad”.
  6.  Have made substantial contributions to their community, parish, and the nation of Jamaica.
  7. Because of their ministry, souls have come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

Please note that the selection of the individuals should not be limited necessarily to those who have served in the highest office in your organization and may very well be a Sunday/Sabbath School teacher, or any other “ordinary” Christian worker who meet the criteria.

To facilitate the process, we have a Nomination Form (which may be copied).  Please complete and return same to us.

You will also have the opportunity to place advertisements in the programme for that evening. You may click here or contact us at:
