A New Beginning for NATCOM Men’s Work of the PCC

The 2012 National Committee (NATCOM) for Men’s Work has been termed one of New  Beginning as the delegates pledged to make a fresh start. This was arrived at during their meeting held at Church Centre Mankon on September 1, 2012 chaired by the National President of the Christian Men Felowship (CMF), Barrister Nico Halle.

Opening the meeting with words of meditation drawn from Jonas 3:1- 3a on the theme, “trust and obedience are the measure of our love for God,” the Programme Officer of the Department for Men’s Work, the Rev Kumo Ruphus, told the delegates that the Lord expects compliance from them whenever he desires their services. He challenged the leaders of the CMF Movement not to abuse the confidence that the members have on them but to put their trust in God describing this as a true measure of their love for God.

Welcoming the members, the National President of the CMF, Barrister Nico Halle, expressed gratitude to all the Presbytery Presidents whom he said are pillars of the Movement and have been doing an enormous job at the grassroots for the growth of the Movement. As they continue to lead the Men, he charged them to be servants and accountable stewards in order to ensure transparency.

After deliberations on their previous activities and the financial report presented by the National Financial Secretary Mr Ngoumba Andrew, it was time for the Heads of Departments to make some interventions.  The National Youth Secretary the Rev Mekumba Francis encouraged the Men in their process of cleaning the Church and country from the overwhelming forces of evil. He expressed the readiness of the youths to work in collaboration with the Men for the growth of the Church.

The National Secretary for Lay Training and Evangelism, the Rev Fomuso S Jacob, on his part was delighted with the sacrifices made by the leaders in d field and urged the Movement to always knock on their doors for they are ready to give them their unalloyed support.

The Secretary Committee of the Ministry the Rev Prof Anyambod Emmanuel, while speaking to the delegates noted that they are an indispensable movement  in the PCC hence challenged them to always be frank so as to evaluate their successes and failures and equally make a balance sheet of all they have done for the past year.

It should be noted that the NATCOM of New Beginning, took some resolutions at the end of the meetings some of which were;

That subsequently, the CMF Rally quiz will no longer be open book  and will consist of objective and multiple questions, that the Rules and Regulations still within the disposal of the Constitution Committee be approved and distributed, that they should be more collaboration between the National Executive of the Movement and the National Secretary and on general note , that Religious Studies be considered as a criteria for employment into any public office In Cameroon.

Addressing the assembly of delegates for his first time, the New National Secretary for Men’s work the Rev Dr Fay Micheal urged all to put hands on deck so as to lift the Movement to higher heights.

Other highlights of the meeting included the election of a National Treasurer of the CMF Mr Fon Mukom Elias alongside the appointment of three internal auditors of the Movement. They were immediately installed by the National Secretary for Men’s Work and the Secretary Committee of the Ministry. Also a very befitting send off was accorded to the Rev Dr Joe Set Aji-Mvo outgone National Secretary for Men’s Work now on retirement. He was dressed in a beautiful traditional regalia by the National Executive who extended appreciation to the Rev Dr Aji-Mvo for his selfless service offered in the department over the years. The Spiritual Colossus as he was described by Barrister Nico Halle, thanked all who supported his services during his stay in office and wished the new National Secretary a very successful time in office so that he can even do better. He concluded with this statement which had been his driving force all along life’s road, which reads, “ it is sensible to be sensitive to the sentiments of the sentimental.”
