Yeshua’s House Ministry (YHM) was founded and launched on the 29th. of June 2018 at the Kendal Shiloh Apostolic Church in Manchester, Jamaica. It is an arm of the Russells Shiloh Apostolic Church in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. YHM was formed to help prepare/position God’s people, through the living word and by determined faith, to possess their inheritance.
Quarterly meetings held at various locations globally, bring together heirs of the promises of God, to listen to Inheritance Experts, who share their stories of how they took control of their God given positions and are making marked differences in the earth. An exposition platform is also made available for other Inheritance Experts (inventors, developers, creators etc.) to present their items for patronage – all to the glory of a God who is very generous!
The commitments/obligations we deliver to Joint Heirs are duly supported by faithful sponsors and well wishers of the ministry.

JANICE E. GAYLE, BSc: 3024 North Powers Drive Apt. 60, Orlando, Florida 32818, USA
She feels blessed to be the seventh of fourteen children born to Roderick and Robertha Smith, both Shiloh Apostolic Church of Jamaica Pastors, of Swaby’s Hope in Manchester.
Fresh out of high school, Janice landed her first job at Manchester Co-operative Credit Union (1977) Limited in November 1993, where she served until 2016. She thanks God for that job, adding that she gained invaluable experiences. She affirms that her positions – the last being manager of the Christiana Branch – has certainly enriched her professional life and enlarged her scope in the work environment. Gayle considers herself more a leader than a manager.
Janice worshiped for years with her parents at the Warminister and Russell Shiloh Apostolic Churches and concludes that the opportunities given to her to teach Sunday school, be the secretary and treasurer for many committees have shaped her into the successful professional she is today.
It is out of her commitment to serve the Lord and out of the love for the souls of men that caused Pastor Robertha Smith, her mom to appoint her an Evangelist at the age of seventeen. Gayle later served at the Holiness Born Again Apostolic Church in Heartsease, Mandeville, as an Evangelist.
Janice now resides in Orlando, Florida, with her husband of twenty-one years, Andrew, her three children; Kay-Andrew, Kedrine, and Andrew Jr.
