PCC: Increase humanitarian work, Construct Hospital, Schools, Win souls for Christ targeted in 2023.
By Bakah Derick
The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) has indicated his readiness to direct the church into more humanitarian work, construction of a hospital, completion of schools and continous evangelism in search for more souls for Christ. The Rt. Rev Fonki Samuel Forba was speaking recently while evaluating 2022 and making projections for 2023.
According to the PCC Chief Shepherd, the church reached out to over 60.000 persons in need within 2022 as part of her humanitarian mission which was insignificant compared to those who were seeking assistance from the church.
"Last year we touched atleast 60.000 souls in humanitarian activities at all levels of the church. It was not an easy task because everybody was looking up to the church as a source of hope but because the church was really deep into the crisis in Anglophone Cameroon, we were unable to meet the needs of every Christian or Cameroonian who came to us." The Rt Rev. Fonki Samuel said
One of the major projects realized by the PCC in 2022 was the construction of an imposing Synod office in Buea christened The Faith Project. With the same faith, the Moderator says he is hoping to realized more infrastructural projects in 2023, amongst them, a hospital within the premises of the former Synod office, construction of the Pres Micro Finance building and completion of Presbyterian Secondary School structures in Yaounde and Douala.
With the hope of maintaining her role as a peace broker, the PCC Moderator hopes to lead a church that is relevant to her members, stays true to the original mission of evangelism thereby "winning more souls for Christ."
