At the OmniSport Grace Brethren Church in Yaounde (so named becuase it’s near a very prominent sports stadium), we met these leaders. At left is M’boum Antoine, who will assume the presidency of the Grace Brethren churches of Cameroon when the current president, Pastor Santos, leaves for Bible training in Bata, Central African Republic.
Gabrielle (center), also one of the leaders of the OmniSport church, is also one of the three men who will move with their families to Bata in the fall to enter a three-year pastoral training program. Currently there are 36 Grace Brethren churches in Cameroon–OmniSport is one of the largest and most prominent. None of these churches has pastors, but all have a “responsible” person who is the lay leader.
Please pray for these three men and their families as they move to the CAR in the fall for pastoral training at Bata–this represents a huge commitment and sacrifice on their part!
