About Us

Our History


In 2003, Jonathan and Shena Carey embraced the ministry assignment given to them by the Lord. For them, it was The CTC Network a mobile ministry providing biblical principles to the mountains of culture. Throughout the years, the Lord has tweaked the vision, and their commitment is to continue to have an ear bent toward the voice of the Holy Spirit. Today the Network is registered in The Bahamas, Domincian Republic, USA, and in the process of registeration in Zambia, Southern Africa. The CTC Network USA continues with a national and international mobile aspect while the others are nationally based.

Reset Caribbean - Compassionate Ministries

RCCM represents facilities and ongoing ministry opportunities in the Domincian Republic and The Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Why RESET? During the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic we developed a workbook series entitled RESET. The five workbooks focus on Faith, Family, Friends, Finances, and Fitness ( fitness, both physical and emotional). These five are interwoven into the fabric of all we do, and therefore RESET has become a  ministry foundational block for us in this season. 


In October 2014, Jonathan was invited to the Dominican Republic on a vision trip. After that trip, he expanded the CTC Network to include the Dominican Republic. In March 2015, Jonathan and Shena invited a group from Glad Tidings Tabernacle Key West, Florida, to join them on a mission trip to La Florida, Dominican Republic. Those fortunate enough to accompany them saw the area firsthand, and Project Ruth was brithed. Property was donated by a resident, Ramon A. Ramirez, a property that had been in his family for many generations. Construction began in May 2015 on a church/community center and medical clinic, the initial construction was completed in August 2015. The ministry continues to add value to the community through a holistic approach in Jesus' Name. Project Ruth is a ministry of The CTC Network Domincian Republic and respresents our Reset Caribbean - Compassionate Ministries there. 


In 2017, during the aftermath of Hurricane Irma in the Florida Keys, Jonathan and Shena as pastors of Glad Tidings Tabernacle housed teams from the Billy Graham RRT and Samaritan's Purse for twelve weeks. Their interaction with these two organizations and the workings of the Holy Spirit in their hearts created the Hope Plaza. They felt impressed by the Holy Spirit to establish a base for ministry in the land of their birth. Hope Plaza is location within view of where Jonathan went to primary school, and was first shown the love of Jesus. The vision of helping others prepare effectively for seasons of crisis, and to ready themselves for eternity holds a special place in his heart from this location.

Reset Caribbean - Compassionate Ministries serves the communities of The Bahamas and the Domincian Republic. It is our vision to assist in raising up emerging leaders in both nations while serving communities through compassionate ministries. We invite you to join the cause.

Effective Leadership-Enquiring & Rebuilding: Nehemiah wore three hats: he was a cupbearer, a builder, and a governor. In our study, we will view the enquiring & rebuilding principles from his roles as cupbearer and builder.


Joshua teaches how to be successful in your personal life and leadership roles. It presents biblical and practical steps for successfully fulfilling your purpose. The six steps presented are: Respond, Remove, Relocate, Request, Require, and Respect.


Leadership Essentials. In essence, we are all leaders, be it in our homes, ministries, workplaces, or leisure places. Continual personal success and the successes of those we influence are in part connected to Visibility, Prayer, Counsel, and Faith.

José sabía que había un llamado generacional en su familia y lo tomó como suyo. Para un adolescente esto demandaba un gran nivel de perspicacia y fe que normalmente no se asocia con los jóvenes de su edad. José oyó hablar de la voz de Dios en su la vida de su bisabuelo, de su abuelo y de su padre y él deseaba lo mismo. José quería que Dios lo usara eficazmente.
