It was an exceptional day at the 'Eglise Presbyteriene Camerounaise' Tohi Parish, Yaounde on Sunday March 30, 2014. The event was the commissioning of the new Parish Pastor, Rev. Jacques Duclaire Sap, who received a call from the parish.

Christians, relatives and well wishers thronged the church building to celebrate the solemn event. In his sermon, the Moderator of the 57th General Assembly of the EPC, Rev. Félix Ebo'o Zambe, said Rev. Sap accepted the call of the parish and so he has to show compassion to Christians and non-Christians alike.

Drawing from the Holy Bible, Rev. Ebo'o Zambe said Rev. Sap has the role of teaching the word of God, healing, preaching and winning souls. He said a pastor who has accepted the call of Christians has to work according to these guidelines. He called on the Christians to love their pastor and to pray for him as he carries out his task. Rev. Jacques Duclaire Sap was born in Ngambe, Sanaga Maritime Division of the Littoral Region on May 29, 1972.

After secondary and high school education, he got admission into the University of Yaounde 1 where he obtained a Bachelor's degree in Earth Sciences in 1999. He later got admission into the Faculty of Theology of the Protestant University of Yaounde in 2002. He also has a DESS in 'Technologies des Semences' from the University of Yaounde 1 in 2008 and a Masters II in Analysis and Evolution of Projects respectively from the Universities of Yaounde II and Rennes I.

Presently, he is preparing a Master's II programme in Missiology at the Faculty of Evangelical Theology, FACTEC, Yaounde. Pastor Jacques Duclaire Sap was initiator and animator of an evangelic mission in Minta in the Upper Sanaga Division of Centre Region from 2004 to 2006. He is the organizer of several evangelization campaigns in Yaounde and its environs. In the EPC, Rev. Sap was President of the Board of Administration of the Department of Planning, and Director of the Department of Agriculture and Development.
