Committee to Assist Ministry Education Overseas Records.

Identifier: CN 091

Brief Description

Correspondence, minutes, reports, monographs, financial records, mailing lists, questionnaires, and photographs related to the origin and activity of CAMEO, a joint committee of the Interdenominational Foreign Mission Association and the Evangelical Fellowship of Mission Agencies (EFMA, formerly Evangelical Foreign Missions Association). The documents reflect CAMEO’s development from a group that was primarily concerned with mission agency education programs to one assisting in the development of indigenous seminaries and Bible schools outside of the United States, especially in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific Islands.

Subjects covered include theological education in developing countries throughout the world, programmed learning, a self-evaluation program for institutions, Theological Education by Extension (TEE), education of prospective pastors and Christian workers, IFMA and EFMA as the sponsoring bodies of CAMEO and activities of US-based mission agencies. Questionnaires returned from hundreds of institutions on priorities, staff methods, future plans, accrediation, etc; responses were later published as THE WORLD DIRECTORY OF MISSION-RELATED EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. Featured correspondents include Ted Ward, Ralph Winter, Fred Holland, Sam Rowen, Delbert Kuehl, Milton Baker, C. Peter Wagner, Philip Armstrong and CAMEO's leaders such as Raymond Buker, Sr., Lois McKinney, and H. Wilbert Norton.

Biographical or Historical Information

Evangelical mission support agency; founded in 1964 as a joint committee of the Evangelical Foreign Missions Association (EFMA) and the Interdenominational Foreign Mission Association (IFMA) to provide liaison with and communication to mission-related educational institutions, primarily in developing countries throughout the world; later emphasis shifted to helping develop indigenous seminaries and Bible schools in developing countries; committee board membership evenly divided between EFMA and IFMA; subcommittees addressed specific aspects of educational policy; circulated resources on theological education and programmed learning; leadership provided by Raymond B. Buker, Sr. (1967-1975), John Gilmore (1975-1978), Lois McKinney (1978-1982), and H. Wilbert Norton (1982-1989); renamed Committee to Assist Ministry Education Overseas, 1978; dissolved in 1991; also known by its acronym, CAMEO.

Founded: March 3, 1962 a meeting of representatives from 15 Evangelical Christian College met at Calvary Chapel in New York to hear Howard Ferrin of Barrington College talk about ways to raise the level of theological education offered to pastors in areas served by North American missions. The essence of the meeting caused a meeting of the National Association of Evangelicals’ Educational Commission (meeting in April) to convene another meeting on the topic. On June 18, 1962, a small group of Evangelical college professors and representatives of the Interdenominational Foreign Mission Association (IFMA) and the Evangelical Foreign Missions Association (EFMA) met to discuss how the overseas education institutions of missions could be better supported. A temporary committee was set up to present the problem to the IFMA and EFMA and suggested the formation of a permanent organization. In April 12, 1963, the National Association of Evangelicals gave its approval to the group and later the same year EFMA and IFMA gave their joint endorsement. In April of 1964 the committee had its first formal meeting with Delbert Kuehl (IFMA) and Milton Baker (EFMA) as co-chairman and eight other members, four from each organization. Several educators were also appointed.

Governance: Although the size of CAMEO's governing board varied, half would continue to be appointed by EFMA and half by IFMA.

Executive officers:

Coordinator (part-time): Raymond B. Buker, Sr., 1967-1975; John Gilmore, 1975-1978

Executive Director: Lois McKinney, 1978-1982; H. Wilbert Norton, 1982-1989

Interim Coordinator (part-time): G. Dal Congdon, 1989-1990

Following Congdon, the executive director of IFMA took care of any CAMEO matters until the committee was dissolved in 1991.

Significant events in organizational history:

1966. Interdenominational workshop in Guatemala marked the beginning of CAMEO’s greater participation in Theological Education by Extension.

January 1973. World Directory of Missions-related Educational Institutions, a CAMEO project, was published.

July 1991: A joint IFMA-EFMA board meeting voted to dissolve CAMEO.

Ministry emphasis: CAMEO’s first activity was surveying seminaries, Bible schools, colleges, high schools, and grade schools around the world about their size, staff, policies, problems, etc. Subcommittees were set up to study specific aspects of education policy such as recruitment of personnel, workshop and area studies, accreditation and affiliation, interchange of personnel and curriculum and textbooks. Besides liaison and communication, CAMEO helped educators by circulating papers, reports, and monographs of mutual interest. But its major activity came, under the leadership of Buker and McKinney, to be theological education by extension (TEE), a means of providing theological training at the college and seminary level to areas of Asia, Africa and South America where there were not sufficient Evangelical seminaries to handle the need for trained Christian workers. This was done in coordination with international accrediting agencies. CAMEO sponsored many workshops, at which professors from North America led seminars. The committee sponsored other programmed learning techniques, such as correspondence courses. Under the leadership of Norton, emphasis was especially placed on educational renewal at seminaries.

Geographical emphasis: CAMEO’s interest were worldwide, but most of its sponsoring agencies came from North America and most of its work was done in Asia, Africa and South America.

Arrangement and Description

Coordinator's files

Arrangement: Files are in alphabetical order according to title. Most of these titles were supplied by the archivist. Within each folder material is arranged chronologically according to date with undated material at the end. Except for minor changes by the archivist, the folders remain in the order in which they were received from CAMEO.

Date Range: 1956 to 1979, although almost all the material is from 1964-1975

Volume: 8.195 cubic feet

Boxes: 1-10

Geographic coverage: United States; information from most parts of the world, especially Latin America, Southern and Southeast Asia, Sub-Sahara Africa, Australia and Oceania

Type of documents: Correspondence, minutes, reports, monographs, financial records, mailing lists, questionnaires, audio tapes, and monograms.

Correspondents: Philip Armstrong, Milton Baker, Raymond B. Buker, Jr., Robert DeMoss, Vergil Gerber, John Gilmore, Fred Holland, W. Orman Knight, Delbert A. Kuehl, William Kerr, Lois McKinney, H. Wilbert Norton, Samuel Rosen, Jack F. Sheperd, William Taylor, C. Peter Wagner, Ted Ward, Ralph Winter

Subjects: The beginnings and development of CAMEO, the status of theological education around the world, the testing of instructional techniques such as programmed learning, and the activities of various United States based on mission boards.

Notes: Several folders contain records concerned with the origins and development of the CAMEO. Folder 1-11 contains correspondence and reports dating back to the first exploratory sessions held at Wheaton in 1962, and outlines of what the new committee's goals would be. Minutes of CAMEO's board, as well as of its steering and local committees, are contained in folders 2-5 and 2-6. Some miscellaneous reports, memos and notes of the board are in folder 1-9, while folder 4-6 contains correspondence between members of the steering committee and the executive committee in folder 1-26. The resources and expenses of CAMEO's work are contained in the financial reports in folders 1-28 and in 2-2. There are also several files of correspondence with foundations (folders 1-18, 1-29, 2-6, 2-19, 4-31). Especially important is the correspondence between Raymond Buker and Robert DeMoss of the National Liberty Foundation. Besides what is contained in folders 1-29 and 2-19, letters between them are contained throughout the rest of the collection. They often corresponded on possible CAMEO projects. Finally, the newsletters put out by the coordinator for the public gave general information at regular intervals on the committee's work.

Perhaps the most interesting group of data in the collection is contained in the questionnaire CAMEO received back from the schools it sent them to between 1963 and 1966. The committee surveyed hundreds of institutions on their priorities, staff, methods, future plans, accreditation, etc. The answers they received can be found in folders 1-1, 1-4, 1-19, 2-1, 2-14, 2-15 and 2-16. Later editions of the mailing list used to send out the questionnaires are contained in folders 3-9 to 3-13 and 3-20 to 3-23.

An activity of the committee was the arranging of full or partial scholarships for foreign students or teachers to come to United States colleges and American teachers to work for a brief period of time overseas. Folders 1-33 and 1-34 contain some of the correspondence and data of those planning this program. Folders 4-14 to 4-29 contain letters exchanged between CAMEO workers and various scholars about whether they wanted to participate in the scholarship work.

Some of the early correspondence and reports refer to projects A, B and C. Project A was the gathering of information from educational institutions about their work. Folder 3-6 contains the correspondence involved in this project including a report on the work of the Sudan Interior Mission (SIM) and the Evangelical Church's of West Africa's (ECWA) educational work, a copy of a directory of theological schools around the world, and letters from Harold Cook, Ken Mulholland, Robert Chapman and William Beck. Project B was an attempt to "...develop a model for the involvement of a mission training school, seminary or Bible school in a self-study, self-help institutional improvement program." Ted Ward of Michigan State University went to the Far Eastern Bible Institute and Seminary (FEBIAS) in the Philippines to try a pilot program at that school. Also involved was the Philippines Association of Bible and Theological Schools. Folders 1-27, 2-23, 3-1 and 3-7 contain correspondence on the planning and intentions of this project as well as reports on its results. Besides Ted Ward and Ray Buker, correspondents included Philip Armstrong and W. Orman Knight. A model of self-evaluation is contained in folder 1-21. This has a self-evaluation of the staff of the Evangelical Alliance Mission (TEAM). Project C, which was never implemented, was to have been the making available to Third World Christian leaders and students, the facilities of the American Institute of Holy Land Studies in Israel so that they could study Christianity at the site of its geographical origin instead of secondhand through Western teachers. Folder 3-8 contains the genesis of this project as well as a great deal of information on the institute.

Another activity of CAMEO was theological education by extension (TEE), which was also called Project D. This was an attempt through the uses of program texts, seminars and workshops to provide Christian workers in other lands with some basic theological training without their having to spend a year or more out of their lives and work in residence at a seminary or college. For several years, TEE was the major activity of CAMEO. Folders 3-24 to 4-4 contain the correspondence, planning memos, registrant lists, and manuscripts of a workshop held in Wheaton in 1968 to determine where TEE programs would be most valuable and what kind of textbooks should be designed. Correspondents in these files, besides Buker, DeMoss and Ted Ward, include Milton Baker, Vergil Gerber, Delbert A. Kuehl, William Kerr, Wilbert Norton, Jack F. Sheperd, William Taylor, C. Peter Wagner and Ralph Winter. Folder 4-2 contains some of the manuscripts delivered at the workshop or used in preparation including ones by Harold Alexander, Milton Baker, J. Allen Thompson, C. Peter Wagner, Louise Jeter Walker and Ralph D. Winter. Also in this file is a transcript on the question and answer session and reports on TEE needs in various parts of the world.

Many other files contain information on TEE workshops and programs outside of America. Folder 4-12 holds reports, newsletters, correspondence, etc. about programs in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It also had reports or descriptions of other extension programs, such as that of the Southern Baptist Convention. Also in the folder is a list of the key people in the TEE movement by Peter Savage and material from Bong Ro and Richard Sturz. Folders 4-7 to 4-11 and 4-13 contain reports and correspondence about specific workshops. Many other folders contain documents on the need for and achievements of TEE in countries and areas including folders 1-5, 1-10, 1-12, 1-14, 1-15, 1-31, 4-14 and 4-32. Folders 3-2 to 3-4 contain the records of another programming technique workshop held in Wheaton. The next folder, folder 3-5, contains a sample of a programmed text.

This collection also contains much data of other Evangelical organizations in and outside of the USA. For example, folders 2-23 and 3-1 hold material on the founding of the Philippine Association of Bible and Theological Schools, as well as a report by Philip E. Armstrong evaluating the work, program, staff and goods of the Far Eastern Bible Institute and the Seminary and a statement on the work of the education committee of the Conservative Baptist Mission in the Philippines. Most of the organizations for which there is information can be found by consulting the folder titles in the container list. Of special interest: the report in folder 1-6 on the results of a survey of the types of students in mission programs in colleges and seminaries; a discussion of the church growth in general and in Latin America in particular folder in 1-22; material in folder 2-15 on the application of electronic data necessary to mission work (this file also has a study of Haitian culture and correspondence from Edward Risedorph Dayton); and the reports of the Institute of Church Growth. The miscellaneous files (folders 2-7 to 2-14) contain brochures, reports, letters, etc., about other Evangelical organizations such as, for example, a report on the history of Baptist missions with chronology and statistics; reports on the Chinese Fellowship for Christian Studies; documents about Missionary Service Institute; data on Men in Action; an evaluation of the Sierra Leone Bible College, etc. Of special interest are the model constitutions and by-laws in folder 2-8 for Bible Schools and Seminaries Association in Foreign Lands. Folder 2-17, labeled "Monographs", has various papers on education theory, curriculum, evaluation of educational institutions, music instruction, education by extension, programmed learning, seminaries in the Dominican Republic and Honduras.

Another set of data gathered at CAMEO consists of the addresses of mission education institutions around the world which are in index card boxes 5, 6 and 7. In box 7 are some other cards apparently used for invoicing and billing.

In addition to the materials in this collection is data gathered for a CAMEO Directory of educational institutions around the world at all grade levels which might benefit from the theological education and programmed techniques devised by the CAMEO staff. Folders 8-1 to 8-5 contain lists of schools in various areas of the world (see Container List). Returned questionnaires are listed by countries in folders 8-8 to 9-33. Folder 8-7 contains correspondence relating to the setting up of the survey, its choice of questions and arrangements for distribution. Also in the folder are minutes of CAMEO meetings, copies of survey forms sent to mission boards, and Unit outlines, e.g., Introduction to French Culture, listing objectives, assignments and class materials. Files containing returned questionnaires are listed by countries, and are a valuable source of information for each school, giving enrollment figures, tuition, sponsoring churches or agencies and all pertinent data.

Folders 9-34 to 9-39 contain Annual Meeting folders for Interdenominational Foreign Missions Association, one of the sponsoring bodies of CAMEO. Included are reports of CAMEO's activities as one of IFMA's committees, minutes and copies of IFMA's constitution. Folder 9-35 has reprints of Horace L. Fenton's article, "Missions and Revolution," originally from Latin America Evangelist, and an editorial response from World Vision magazine.

Theological Education Extension (TEE) Workshop reports and correspondence with individuals and organizations involved in these activities are in folders 9-1 to 10-12 and 10-19 through 10-21. Correspondence is concerned with setting up the workshops in various areas, arrangements for translations of the materials, analyses of their effectiveness and suggestions for modification. The letters are particularly valuable for their insights into the cultural settings of countries or continents, revealing many details of cultural differences which affect the learning processes and utilization of theological education. Folder 10-9, for example, includes a workshop survey in detail of methods, response and evaluation of programmed materials in Third World countries. See Container List for workshops in specific countries.

Folders 10-13 and 10-14 contain the correspondence about orders and the proofs of a booklet used by CAMEO, Parental Preparation of Missionary Children for Boarding School, expanded from a thesis by James Romaine Beck. Monographs in folder 10-16 include copies of reports of the factors necessary for constructing a curriculum, principles and content and the possibilities for upgrading Bible colleges. Correspondence of John Gilmore, CAMEO director between 1975-1978, is in folder 10-25. Lois McKinney's folder, 10-15, includes the period when she was completing a doctorate before eventually becoming CAMEO's director in 1978. CAMEO's correspondence with William Carey Library, a publishing house, is in 10-17. CAMEO began phasing out its own publishing activities about this time (1972). The file has a list of Theological Education by Extension texts, edited by Ralph D. Winter of CAMEO.

Folders 10-19 through 10-29 give extensive information about the use of programmed techniques and the TEE activities in Africa (folders 10-20 and 10-21) and Brazil (folder 10-19). Folder 10-19 contains newsletters in Spanish of AETTA (Associacio Evangelica Teologica Para Treinamento Por Extensao). Folder 10-20 includes valuable information about the development and use of programmed activities of TEE in Africa. Data of the formation of ABICAM (Association of Evangelical Bible Institutes and Colleges in Africa and Madagascar) is in this file. There are also bulletins, statements of policy and outlines of seminary extension training. A sample Programmed Workshop brochure describes how to design programmed learning. A newsletter discusses the best methods for use in Africa. A booklet of the Second Africa Evangelical Conference (1969) has a calendar of events, of participants and speakers, with some quotations.

Folder 10-21 has a packet of TEE materials with budgets, evaluations, report of Fred and Grace Holland's use of programmed materials in Africa, schedules and participants, and plans for the 1972 Workshop at Salisbury, Rhodesia.

    Notes: The files in this series document the work of McKinney and Norton as leaders of CAMEO, mainly in the area of arranging and often holding TEE workshops where they were needed and otherwise assisting in the development of theological education programs outside of North America and Europe. CAMEO had various levels of contacts with very many of the North American Evangelical institutions that was concerned with foreign missions, theological education. or college and university students, as well as most of the Evangelical seminaries and theological associations outside of the United States. Since the files are arranged alphabetically, anyone searching for information on a particular institution or association should look for a file under the organization’s name. In several cases, a file contains the correspondence with several organizations, such as ETTA, FESP, etc.

    The activities and goals of CAMEO are probably best studied in the minutes and reports of the executive committee and board of directors in folders 22-3 to 23-10. Some correspondence with board members is in folders 16-3 and 16-4. Other executive committee minutes, often duplicates, are in folders 32-1 through 32-4. Also, folder 42-1 contains a notebook of executive director reports, board minutes, financial statements, and other documents from 1982-1990, the last years of CAMEO’s existence. These contain the executive director’s description of her or his recent activities and future plans. However, there are no documents from the very end of CAMEO. Some documents about the dissolution of the committee are in collection 165, the records of the Evangelical Fellowship of Mission Agencies. See especially folders 142-7, 146-21, and 147-17.

    Also helpful are the documents from CAMEO history in folders 25-11, 26-1, 26-2, 28-14 and 40-1, and the files on the development of the coordinator position in folder 15-15 and the development of the executive director position in folder 23-11. See also folders 27-7 and 31-14.

    Ray Buker reminisced on tape in 1985 about his own life and the early history of CAMEO. The purpose of the recording (T1 and T2) is unknown. Among the topics he covered are: (tape T1) his boyhood, experiences as a track athlete, Eric Lidell, Buker’s work as a missionary on the Chinese-Burma border, the beginnings of Conservative Baptist missions, the founding of CAMEO, the survey of mission education programs, the development of TEE; (tape T2) the principles of CAMEO’s operation, CAMEO’s work in Africa, Fred Holland, financial support of the work from the DeMoss Foundation and elsewhere. The tape concludes with his thoughts about the development of CAMEO. A transcript of this tape can be found in folder 40-2.

    A good deal of the work of the executive director was done through correspondence. Most of the files in this collection are correspondence files. See especially Norton’s tickler files in boxes 37 through 39. The contents of these files give a good idea of the projects and concerns that he was involved with. (A tickler file is one that contains materials that a person wants to remind himself about.) Some of these relate to non-CAMEO projects that in which Norton was involved.

    Folders 29-2 through 31-11 contain documents from McKinney’s travels to Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Australia, the Pacific and Latin America between 1979 and 1982. Besides holding workshops, she conferred with regional associations, such as The Association for Theological Education by Extension (TAFTEE)of India, the Associaco evang lica para treinamento teológiao por extensão (AETTE), the Philippine Association of Theological Education by Extension (PATEE). Folder 30-4 contains many of her travel diaries from these trips. In these diaries, as well in the folder of contacts, are listed many of the non-Western theologians and educators who she was working with. Folder 30-7 contains information about the seminars she taught at the Union Bible Seminary in India. See also folder 40-11. Also in this set of folders are documents about her participation in planning meetings and consultation by the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization (folder 31-2) and the World Evangelical Fellowship (folder 31-11). Other information about her travels can be found in documents throughout the series, such as the folder 12-3 which has correspondence and reports from her 1979 African seminars.

    Norton continued the tradition of travel. Information on his trips, however, are scattered through the series instead of mostly concentrated in one group of files. As an example of his travels, see folder 12-4, with materials from his 1985 trip to Africa. Norton’s Christmas letters in folders 15-4 through 15-9 also give an idea of his activities.

    The series also has a great deal on the development of so-called Third World theologies in the 1970s and '80s. Material can be found in various folders, but see especially folders 12-12, 13-1, 13-4 and 13-5 with records from the 1978 consultation of the Asian Theology Society in Singapore in 1978.
  • Arrangement Note

    The documents in this collection include correspondence, minutes, reports, monographs, financial records, mailing lists, questionnaires, and photographs related to the origin and activity of CAMEO, a joint committee of the Interdenominational Foreign Mission Association and the Evangelical Fellowship of Mission Agencies (EFMA, formerly Evangelical Foreign Missions Association). The documents reflect CAMEO’s development from a group that was primarily concerned with mission agency education programs to one assisting in the development of indigenous seminaries and Bible schools outside of the United States, especially in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific Islands.
