After nearly twenty years of service in the Covenant-Free Church mission office in Bangui, Rev. Jean Bete was installed as president of the new Communaute Evangelique de l’Ubangi en Mission en Afrique (CEUMA), (the Evangelical Community from the Ubangi, in Mission in Africa). Leaders of the Covenant Church in Congo laid hands on Bete and consecrated him into the newly formed sister church that will serve in the Central African Republic. The installation service also included music, with a men’s chorus singing two pieces written specifically for the event. (The Evangelical Covenant Church)
