Pastor O’mar Stennett

…has a great sense of humor! As a minister of the gospel he leads one of Jamaica’s fastest growing ministries – Church on the Rock Ocho Rios which was founded in July 2002.

Our Pastor is real and relevant but is known mostly for the excellent way in which he communicates the Word of God and for his compassion for people. His main focus is praying for, teaching and being a pastor to COTR. From its location at Unit #5 Jamaica National Building, 5 Graham Street, Ocho Rios, St. Ann, COTR-Ocho Rios is striving to reach the world with the Gospel of Christ through audio/video media, printed material and missionary sponsorship.

Pastor O-mar now in his thirties, began preaching in his late teens. He has spoken at High Schools, conferences, and other churches all across Jamaica. Pastor O-mar has been able to breach denominational barriers and find attentive listeners from every conceivable religious background.

Pastor O-mar is joined in the ministry by his wife, Annilessa, daughter Karlessa and sons Nathan and Jonathon. They reside in Priory, St. Ann.

Annilessa Stennett

Annilessa Stennett was born and raised in St. Ann, Jamaica. She became a member of Church on the Rock Ocho Rios in 2006 and serves faithfully alongside her husband.

She is the quintessential Proverbs 31 woman. Lady Stennett, as she she affectionately called by the congregation, is a woman of noble character, who is clothed in strength and dignity; she is wise and fears the Lord.

Having been blessed with many spiritual gifts, Lady Stennett heads the Praise and Worship, Women’s and Prayer Ministries. She has a heart to serve and declares that she shall serve God with her entire being.

She is devoted to her family and is happily married to the Senior Pastor O-Mar Stennett. They are blessed to have three children, Karlessa, Nathan and Jonathan and she God parents many others.

Lady Stennett is excited to serve in ministry at such a time as this and looks forward to what the Lord God Almighty has in store for His Church.
