Social cohesion in Cameroon is threatened by corruption, the rising cost of living, unemployment and terrorist attacks by Boko Haram. For some time, moreover, this country has been plagued by civil unrest stemming from a dispute between the central government and the English-speaking population. Given this background, good academic training for qualified theologians is critically important. The Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Kumba (PTS) and the Faculty of Theology in Yaoundé (PUCA) train pastoral staff with an ecumenically open approach and with due regard for Cameroon's traditions. They ensure that the churches exploit their potential to voice their views on crucial social problems and to offer practical assistance.
