Dr. Elliston Rahming Bio.
Elliston Rahming – was born in the settlement of Black Point, South Andros to the Late Brother Ishmael Rahming and the wonderful Sister Daisy Rahming.
He experienced island life to the fullest before moving to Nassau with his parents and siblings in 1962. He attended Bahamas Academy and while doing so he assisted the family by engaging in small entrepreneurial opportunities such as shining shoes, selling wholesale straw bags for his mother, selling peanuts and newspaper.
Later in life he continued to embrace many other opportunities for entrepreneurship and employment such as being a teacher and newspaper journalist. With self-determination and encouragement from his family to further his education, Elliston Rahming engaged in a one (1) man walkathon around Nassau to raise some of the funds needed for college.
He graduated from Bethune Cookman College in Daytona Beach, Florida with a Masters Degree in Social Work and Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri with a Doctorate in Criminology.
Upon returning home while pursuing other ventures Dr. Rahming was appointed as the first Personal Assistant to former Prime Minister of the Bahamas, the late Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling. For the past eight years (8) he has served as Superintendant of Her Majesty’s Prison.
Dr. Rahming is married to Arthurlue Rahming, Administrator of Project Read Bahamas. He is a father and grandfather and his siblings include 2 members of this church, Brother Charles Rahming and Sister Ivy Rolle. Sis. Daisy Rahming, one of the oldest members of this church is his sanctified mother.
Dr. Rahming’s recent and most notable accomplishment to date is his recent appointment as the Bahamas Permanent Representative to the Organization of American States. Last week Thursday, April 4th, 2013 he received his credential from the Governor General for his appointment as Ambassador to the United States.
All of these accomplishments and more are great, but Dr. Rahming recognizes his greatest accomplishment as being a 3rd generation Seventh-day Adventist, a follower of Christ. He was a member of the Grants Town Seventh-day Adventist Church and is presently a member of the Philadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Church, where he serves as a deacon and is a member of the South Bahamas Conference Adventist Men’s Chorale.
His Excellency Dr. Rahming continues to be a humble person, believing in James chapter 4 verse 6 “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Church please pray for him in this new venture that God will continue to be the center of his joy.
