Proclaiming The Gospel Through Every Effective Means​

What You Hear Whispered, Proclaim On The Housetops

Capacity Statement

The Communication, Publications and Archives Department of the Cameroon Baptist Convention exists to proclaim Christ to the lost world using the mass media (radio, television and print). The department also gives visibility to all CBC Departments and Ministries. This work started in 1960 with the production of the Baptist Voice Newspaper and the broadcast of sermons over radio Cameroon (which later became CRTV).  The Department has grown enormously and today operates a variety of services. The Department runs a modern printing press, two radio stations (Bamenda and Buea). It also has a growing Archives unit which preserves the administrative documents of the CBC since 1954. Plans are on the way for the launching of satellite Television.

We cover CBC events for Video, picture, radio, and news paper production.

We record, edit and produce content in diverse formats (print, audio, audio-visual) for radio broadcasting, Baptist Voice Newspaper and other purposes.

Radio broadcast started in the 1960s with some of the following in charge: Rev Daryl Martin, Rev Flavius Martin, Rev. Herald Lang, Rev Harold Schroeder, Smith Eko, Julie Cowie, Peter Ngong and Emmanuel Woloko. These people at one point were at the helm of Communications although Communication had several other workers. They produced and presented most of the programs: Baptist Meditation, Baptist Voice and a host of Educative and Evangelistic programs over radio.

 

 In 2003 CBC Radio Bamenda was born. This station runs on FM 97.2 and same year, CBC opened a Printing Press for the printing of CBC materials. In 2015, CBC   started another radio Station in Buea. It operates on FM 101.9. These stations have made great impact in the community and have been feeding the public with sound biblical messages, soothing music, a panoply of educative, informative and interactive programs and a host of other services. It has rescued some people who were at the verge of committing suicide and others still have made a commitment for Christ through sermons and rich Christian programs.

 The Communication Ministry as it was called began with broadcast of radio Sermons over radio Cameroon (which later became CRTV) and the Printing of the Baptist Voice Newspaper in the 1960s. The first editions of this publication were done on A4 paper using a manual type writer with drawings in place of pictures.  The document has grown over the years. It became a tabloid in the 1990s and in 2016 it evolved from an eight page document to a 12 page newspaper. It is published for now after every two months. It covers the entire life of the CBC including; Churches, Fields and Departments. It does not only inform CBC Christians about what is happening but systematically records the life of the Convention. It gazettes important decisions of the CBC. It is a veritable source material for the construction of the history of the CBC. Most of the past editions of the paper have been preserved in the archives.

The CBC Archives is a unit supervised by Communications. Besides newspapers the archives preserves administrative documents of the Convention: reports of CBC Boards, CBC General Council, General Session minutes and General Correspondences. It is a rich research Center with a small library attached. Efforts have been made to build the archives. The unit now has a building of its own with documents orderly arranged in archival boxes.

Challenges and areas of need

The challenges of the Communication and Publication Department are many and varied. They range from lack of adequate resources, (human, material and financial). The Department needs more trained journalists, broadcast ministers, technicians, cameras, recorders, mobility facilities and a host of equipment for effective ministry.

 

Prayer points

  • We pray for more resources and funding.
