The congress project comes through after a real battle with men. One hundred of them have abandoned their occupations for this meeting of teachings and exchanges. The theme "Faithfulness to His Prophets in the Search for Growth" has been developed into several sub-themes. The facilitators presented, among other subjects, Adventist partnerships, Christian entrepreneurship, keys to blessing, member self-sufficiency (Rwanda and Kenya case), investments and projects, and mark of the Adventist Church.

In addition to these moments of study, the participants spent great moments of prayer and meditation. The setting in which the congress was held, being away from the noises of the city, fostered a real communion with God. The delegates to this congress were not just men only, some women came to support in cooking and as well as taking care of the media coverage. It is a remarkable combination of genders to actually build for the Lord.
Brother Jean Félix Eboua Essam, director of the OAM in the SCC and his team are happy on how this congress was held and expect on a larger mobilization of the Adventist men for the development of the Adventist Church in Cameroon at large and especially in the Conference concerned. A number of projects have been considered to mark the implementation of the shared vision during this congress. Adventist men, long behind, stood up with this slogan: "Men for Christ, let us rise and build for the Lord! There is no shame in following our women in their zeal Christ. This, men in central and southern Cameroon have understood.
