CAMEROON

about bcc in cameroon

BCC’s first contact in Cameroon was in 1973. Over time, especially from 1987 onwards, this developed into three main fellowships, i.e. in Yaoundé, Bafoussam and Douala. BCC in Cameroon is represented by AEJAC (Association pour l’Encadrement des Jeunes et Adultes du Cameroun).

During the year several national conferences are held at Vallée Verte Conference Centre in Yaoundé. 

 

The construction of Vallée Verte Conference Centre commenced in June 2012. With the high unemployment rate, especially among the young adults in Cameroon, it was decided to do the project through voluntary work by young adults from Cameroon, with technical and managerial support from members of BCC South Africa. The aim of making use of volunteers was to give unemployed young people the opportunity to learn skills helping them to make a living for themselves. The project proved to be a great success, with most of the 50 volunteers being employed or self-employed shortly after the project was completed.

The conference centre (Vallée Verte) was completed at the end of 2013, including a meeting hall with seating for 450 persons and 6 accommodation buildings with 4 apartments each.

The general weekly program consists of:

  • Sunday school for children 
  • Sunday general service
  • Sunday youth activities 
  • Wednesday evenings general service
  • Bible studies on Saturday afternoons
  • Saturday evening youth service
  • Children’s activities
