PCC Moderator Celebrates 55TH PC Day with Christians of Tubah- Boyo Presbytery

 

The 55th Presbyterian Church (PC) Day celebration was one with a difference in the newly created Tubah Boyo Presbytery.

It was very unique in d sense that Christians of this baby Presbytery were privileged to have the Moderator, the Rt Rev Dr Festus Asana in their midst on this special day. Secondly, unlike other congregations who were celebrating at Parish level all the roads of the different Parishes in Tubah- Boyo led to PC Tubah on November 11 2012 where all the Christians converged to mark this history making event of the PCC. Also it will be interesting to know that Tubah- Boyo Presbytery on this 55th PC Day was proclaimed as a Presbytery by the Moderator of the PCC and the day also witnessed the institution of the Pioneer Presbyterial Secretary for Tubah- Boyo, the Rev Ajime Nelson.

Present at the triple celebration were officiating ministers such as the Synod Clerk the Rev Abwenzoh William and the Moderator’ sRepresentative in the NWR, the Rev Jum Ignatius, together with over twenty pastors. Over 3000 Christians, guests, traditional authorities, Elite of Tubah- Boyo, top administrative authorities as well as some Heads of Departments were also present.

Drawing inspiration from 1st Corinthians 3:5 – 23, on the theme, “Jesus Christ is our sure Foundation, the Chief Celebrant, the Rt Rev Dr Festus Asana advised Christians to build their lives on a firm foundation which is Jesus Christ.

As they celebrate the 55th anniversary of the PCC on the theme, “be steadfast,” he charged Christians to reconsider their ways and look up to Christ. According to him those who do not love, destroy the Church while those who bring division weaken the foundation of the Church. Commissioning the Pioneer Presbyterial Secretary of Tubah- Boyo, the Moderator challenged him to be equal to the task and likened the new Presbytery to a mustard seed that will grow and spread. The occasion was also marked by speeches from the pioneer Presbytery Chairperson Mofor Cecelia who described the new Presbyterial Secretary as a young, dynamic, energetic and fore sighted young man who will surely move the Presbytery to higher heights.

On their part the Fon of Bambui Fon Angafor Mumbo II and the Divisional Officer for Tubah Mr. Etta Ashu Bokaya challenged the Elite and Christians to join hands and make newly inaugurated Presbytery to grow. The two promised their unflinging support towards the achievement of the noble goals of the Presbytery.

After receiving the batten of command the pioneer Presbyterial Secretary said he can only succeed in his endeavour if Christians rally strongly behind him.

The climax of the 55th PC Day was the Moderator’s message on the occasion of the 55th PC Day which was presented by the Veteran Communicator, the Rev Achowah Umenei. In the message which was received with a heavy applause was captioned “be steadfast.’ In the message the Moderator encouraged all PCC Christians to hold firm their faith in God within the PCC and not allow themselves to be toast about from one Church to another.

 The day was crowned with singing and a great mission feast.

Impressions on the 55th PC Day

 

We should be Forward Looking

 

The day was harmonious and we saw joy in the faces of the Christians. My evaluation is very positive. My hope and prayer is that, this positive attitude will be demonstrated in the functioning of the Presbytery.  I am calling on all Presbyterians and Cameroonians as a whole to be forward looking. I tend to look at life from the sunny side. We must look forward to something better than today. I believe that we are moving forward. I have the belief that every problem has a solution.

We Should Deepen our Individual and collective spiritual Growth

 

We should deepen our individual and collective spiritual growth through regular affirmation of faith in God, prayer, Bible reading and meditation. It is commitment to the truth of the Good News that despite all the intimidating twists and turns in the Church we hang on there. With these, our overwhelming loyalty  to the Church will be displayed. Once we believe and follow Christ all will be well. The Bible says seek ye first the kingdom of God and all other things will be added. I think this is the heart of the Moderator’s message and if we abide by the theme, “be steadfast,” the movements and Choirs will carry out their evangelization mission to the Church by winning more souls for Christ.

A New  Dawn Has Come

In deed we are indebted to God that the 55th PC Day celebration went on hitch free in Bafut Presbytery. I hope this celebration is going to usher us into another new day. From seriousness and commitment and we are going to stand on our own. We receive the Moderator’s message with very good intentions. Certain things we were taking for granted will now be treated seriously.

Presbyterians Should Remain Committed

The significance of every PC Day is always a reminder of when Cameroonians having had the gospel for a number of years  decided that they wanted to grow out of the Basel Mission. In reference to this year’s theme , “be steadfast,” I think it is  very appropriate because it engages all Presbyterians to a spirit of commitment and when you commit yourself to something you got to support whatever you are committed to. It is therefore a call for Christians to be committed to the gospel and to be committed to being Presbyterians.

 A Day of Reflection

The PC Day is a very important and significant day in my life. Because as a Presbyterian it is the day that makes me look forward to what I am as a Christian. What I can do as a Christian, not only looking up to what the Church can offer me but what I can offer to the Church.

A Symbolic Celebration

 

This 55th PC DAY is particularly significant to me because of my late husband the Rev Kenji Zephaniah who died last year. He died at the age of 55. So this 55 years  I remember it because he was 55 years and this day the PCC is celebrating their 55th  anniversary. I rely want to thank God that he has made me to see this day and also to remember my husband who worked in this Church tirelessly. I just pray that the PCC should continue to grow from strength to strength and God should continue to bless the leaders of the Church so that they should bear more fruits in this Church.

Moderator’s Message Was Pregnant with Meaning.

The PC Day celebration each year carries with it a lot of significance. It reminds us of our birth and we celebrate it as our birthday. It is the day when we changed from the Basel Mission to the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon. Today we do not only remember our independence but also that we are 55 years old. The theme of this year’s celebration is very timely, coming to Christians and calling on them to be steadfast, to stand firm and to trust in God. In the face of new challenges and storms in the Church, we are supposed to remain steadfast. I appreciate the message of the Moderator; it was well worded, timely and pregnant with a lot of meaning.

PCC Christians Stand Very Firm

The message of the Moderator was very touching and I believe that if all of us Presbyterians remain steadfast in our faith we are going to go to higher heights. As Presbyterians we should remain committed to the Church and see that we serve the Lord with fear in our hearts.  Every Christian must work hard to see that Presbyterian Church stands on that solid rock which is Jesus Christ.
