In the year 1923 during the General Assembly of the Church of God, in Cleveland Tennessee, USA, George F Walter was appointed as missionary to Jamaica
although information regarding the arrival of Walter is unclear, he was the first missionary officially appointed to Jamaica by the church. Notwithstanding the uncertainty of Walter’s arrival in 1923, the work of the church was already operating in the Island prior to arrival of J.L. Kinder in 1931.This is evidenced in the fact that R.C. Smith was converted during an evangelist service in Kingston where Mrs. Nina Stapleton, a missionary from the Church of God over which A/J. Tomlinson was the overseer, was the preacher. Shortly after his conversion in 1921, at the age of 18, Smith began to answer the call of God to preach the message of salvation in a remote area of Clarendon, called Main Ridge.
