CBC Ordains Five Pastors 

By Jeff Ngawe Yufenyu

Five pastors belonging to Nkwen Association of Churches of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, CBC, have been ordained. 

The ordination ceremony took place recently at Nkwen Baptist Church, Bamenda.
The occasion, which was presided over by the Deputy Director of Evangelism and Missions of the CBC, Rev. Christopher Fanfon, took place in the presence of a college of 25 Pastors.
The five pastors ordained include Pastors Emmanuel Ekwo Jatoh, Hycint Njobara Lenjo, Jonathan Kui, Etiene Ntumbi and Joseph Ngwani Nyugap.

In his welcome address at the occasion, the Chairman of Nkwen Association, Ngwang T.M, said the newly ordained pastors will bring the number of pastors in the church to nine.  Ngwang said Nkwen Association is an administrative unit of the CBC, which consist of 14 churches and nine prayer groups.

In his homily at the ordination, drawn from 1Timothy 04:06, Rev. Edward Njini urged the new pastors to be worthy Ministers of Jesus Christ. He told them that a sound doctrine, a godly life and commitment to the ministry make one a worthy servant of God. Rev. Njini warned his newly ordained colleagues against alcohol, women, money and pride. The five pastors vowed never to embrace any practices that would be at variance with the Word of God. 

They were dressed in ordination gowns as signs that they have become reverend gentlemen of the gospel. They each received a certificate of ordination and a gift from CBC hierarchy.
Speaking to The Post at the end of the ceremony, Rev. Fanfon said the ordination empowers the pastors to carry out certain ordinances of the church such as baptism and administration of the Lord’s super.
