About Us

More about Back to the Bible Jamaica, our history, leadership, and more.

Back to the Bible Jamaica is a part of the Back to the Bible ministry with headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska, which was founded by Theodore Epp in 1939. His passion then was to use modern technology to “bring people back to the Bible.” Our passion today is no different; it is to use the latest technology to reach the world with the life-transforming power of God’s Word… to bring you closer to Jesus today then you were yesterday.

Back to the Bible established an office at Moorlands in Manchester, Jamaica on October 28, 1958 under its first Managing Director Mr. Leonard Bewick. In May 1959 the offices were relocated to 6 Hope Road in Kingston and in January 1966 to 10 Hagley Park Plaza, Kingston. In November 2015, we moved to our present location at Shop 22 Hagley Park Plaza, Kingston, Jamaica
