The first church that was founded under the leadership of the freshly ordained corps of elders was Bethel at St. Joseph’s Road in Kingston.  Pastor White’s sister Gladys, and her husband Hubert Reynolds kept a Sunday School in their home on Crescent Road.  Bro. Albert Karram had a special desire to see a work founded in this area, so the brethren banded together, had open-air and cottage meetings, secured a plot of land, erected a building and Bethel Gospel Assembly was born.
