In the early 1960's Jack Harvey and Jim Cooper focused their attention on developing two Independent Fundamental Baptist churches on the island of Nassau. A need was then discerned for the training of young people. Nassau Christian Academy was soon established. This Christian School is now totally administrated by national leadership. Because of the Haitian immigration, Carl Goodfrey planted a Haitian church. Since his death, his wife Shirleen and Dr. and Mrs Henry Howell has assisted the national pastor in this work. Missionaries Keith and Jane Ford are starting a deaf ministry in a church at Freeport.
All works started by BIMI in the Bahamas now have national pastors. Since the Bahamas passed a rigid work law, few missionaries are permitted work permits—those who were trained in days gone by accomplish the work today. Most recently Calvary Baptist Church and Academy on the island of Abaco was nationalized. Missionaries Ken and Joyce Touchton have semi-retired after 35 years of faithful service in the Bahamas.
