PCC, Presbyterian Church in Cameroon
The Basel Mission (now Mission 21) has been active in western Cameroon since 1886. The Presbyterian Church in Cameroon (PCC) became independent in 1957, even before Cameroon itself declared independence. It has been self-supporting in most areas of its work since then. The PCC is now the largest Protestant denomination in English-speaking West Africa. It has about 1.5 million members who are spread among the church's 25 districts (presbyteries). With support from Mission 21, the PCC is a key driver of progress in Cameroon society, and it plays a decisive part in the development of the healthcare and educational sectors.
