Ministry of the Church of God (Holiness) in the Cayman Islands first began in 1932, when three traveling evangelists on a “West Indian tour” stopped over at Cayman Brac for two days and three nights. Ministry on Grand Cayman began in the 1970s.
Through the work of many faithful missionaries and through the commitment of many Caymanians, three churches now thrive in the Cayman Islands—Spot Bay and Watering Place on Cayman Brac and Red Bay on Grand Cayman. One of the high points of their year is the annual Vacation Bible School.
Bob and Cinda Thompson pastored in Grand Cayman for 25 years. Their ministry was very effective in reaching out to the community through the years. After the conclusion of their ministry, Sis. Anna Gracia Smith Joseph (Sis. Gracie) faithfully served as senior pastor from 2011-2018.
David and Zenia Woods, along with their boys Joseph and Noah, moved to Cayman Brac in 2014 to pastor the people there. In 2018, they accepted the call to pastor the Red Bay church in Grand Cayman. In 2020, they returned to the United States.
David's parents, Gayle and Micki Woods, moved to Cayman Brac to pastor in the summer of 2018, where they continue leading the churches forward for the glory of God.
