The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, PCC, has commenced the ordination of 11 out of 25 pastors of the 2011 Rejuvenation batch, as reverends of the mission.
The Moderator, Rt. Rev. Dr. Festus Ambe Asana, commenced the ordination recently in Kumba. 
The ordination of the remaining 14 will take place in Bamenda, Northwest Region.
The ordination ritual precedes two years of service by the young pastors in various congregations across the country, after their training at the Presbyterian Theological Seminary, PTS, Kumba.
Addressing the young pastors at Presbyterian Church Kumba Town, the Moderator urged them to serve and not rule over their people.
Rev. Asana reminded them that the Stole and the Bible given to them, is a sign of authority which they have received to preach the gospel and administer sacraments to God’s people in and out of season.
The Moderator cautioned the newly ordained pastors to convince, rebuke, exhort and be unfailing in patience.
To the church, family members and colleagues, the Moderator appealed for constant prayers to enable the servants of God perform their duties with the fear of God. 
He challenged family members especially, not to cause the new pastors to derail from their vision.
Situating the importance of the ordination, Asana remarked that it is, first an opportunity for the new pastors to renew their vow before God and to respect the constitution and guiding principles of the PCC.
Asana rejoiced that the ordination signifies an increase in recruits who are ready to carry the gospel of Jesus Christ to all the corners of the world.
Giving meaning as a pastor to the ordination, Rev. David Kings Njie, resident pastor of PC Kumba Town, expressed delight that more servants are coming to help enhance the work of God. 
Njie asserted that the new pastors would come in with an impetus that would give more strength to the vision of the PCC in Cameroon.
