Tyrells Baptist Church

Resident Elder

Pastor Ivor J. Walker was ordained to the pastoral ministry on December 31, 1990. He is a career military officer in the Antigua & Barbuda Defense Force with the rank of Lt. Colonel. He is a graduate of the Canadian Land Forces Staff College. He and his wife, Janet, have one daughter, Ariadne.


The Tyrells Baptist Church exists for the purpose of glorifying our God with specific reference to the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). The Great Commandment challenges us to love God and our fellowman. The Great Commission challenges us to evangelism, bringing people into right relationship with the Son of God; to covenant community, bringing people into a right relationship with the church of God; and to discipleship, bringing people into a right relationship with the Word of God.

Eldership and Affiliation

The Tyrells Baptist Church shares a common Eldership with the Baptist Circuit of Churches of the East Caribbean Baptist Mission, of which it is a member congregation. The elders are Pastor Dr. Hensworth W.C. Jonas (Presiding), Pastor Ivor J. Walker, and Pastor Orvin D.E. Paige. The Tyrells Baptist Church is historically Southern Baptist in faith and practice.


The Tyrells Baptist Church was officially constituted on November 29th, 1992 under the leadership of Dr. Hensworth W.C. Jonas. It started as a mission planted out of 27 charter members transferring from the membership of the Central Baptist Church. The ECBM purchased land on the Tyrells Main Road and constructed the chapel that is currently used for worship. The church has grown over the years to be a well-known lighthouse of the Gospel of Christ in the wider community of St. Paul’s.


The church is located between Builders Merchant Store and Mr. Plywood Lumber & Hardware Store on the way to Liberta on the Tyrells Main Road.
