Annual Goal: $82,000.00

Year to Date Gifts: $2,388.72

Describe the need affecting community
Needs that effect the constituencies of our church can be summarized as follow: 1) As a fairly new mission setting, there is a need for more leadership training. 2) Need of more contact with the outside world. 3) Need of efficient ways to advertise the work of the UMC in Cameroon. 4) Need of creating income generating projects in order to ensure the sustainability of the church in the future.
How will this Advance project help to address the need?

The United Methodist Church in Cameroon is a Mission Initiative of Global Ministries that exists to preach the Good News in order to make disciples of our risen Lord Jesus Christ, interact with other existing churches and alleviate human suffering.

Describe the primary goal of the project

Overall goals: 1) Establish a strong and valuable United Methodist presence in Cameroon. 2) The Cameroon Mission Initiative to become a Provisional Annual Conference in 2020. Objectives: 1) Create at least 35 places of worship. 2) Train at least 25 pastors and help them to get a MDiv. We have already trained 14 so far. 3) Train at least 10 lay persons in various ministries of the Church: 2 have been trained so far - One in Music in Uganda and the other one in Micro-finance here in Cameroon. 4) Ordain at least 20 pastors. We have already ordained twelve. Of those twelve, two have retired; one has left voluntarily; one has left under disciplinary action; and eight are remaining. 5) The timeline for all these objectives is 2020.
