The Heart of Africa

Writers have long called Cameroon “Africa in miniature” because of its central location, cultural diversity, and varied geography. To serve in Cameroon with its 256 tribal groups is to experience the full breadth of African culture.

Christianity has grown from 9% of Africa’s population in 1910 to 63% in 2010. However, this incredible growth has left only one trained pastor for every 20 churches in African countries like Cameroon.

Cameroon is on the spiritual front lines of Africa. While Christianity grows, so does Islam. Islam is projected to expand in the region by 60% in the next 20 years. Further, voodoo, ancestor worship, and syncretism also compete with the Gospel.

Thus, Cameroon “was a strategic choice rather than a safe choice,” reflects Dr. Greg Trull. “We wanted to serve in the center of God’s work to train future world Christian leaders.” Corban has worked with International Training & Equipping Ministries to develop a 3-year training program at no cost for Cameroon’s pastors.

Corban’s School of Ministry first started the pastor training program in 2013 with a cohort of 38 pastors, who were ministering to nearly 8,700 people each week. Corban partnered with these select leaders in order to extend and empower their ministries and to further Corban’s mission.

Currently, the School of Ministry is training a cohort of 50 pastors, who provide instruction and leadership for nearly 22,000 people in this strategic region of Africa. They will complete the program in May 2018.
