Dr. Chantal Yamthe was born in the country of Cameroon, Africa and has been in the United States since 1994. Married to Samuel Yamthe for over 28 years, she is both a wife and mother to four beautiful children. Dr. Yamthe graduated from Law school at the University of Yaoundé Cameroon in 1993 and came to the United States in order to join her husband to pursue a career in law.
It was not until May 2003 that God visited her and led her into a 30-day encounter with the LORD JESUS CHRIST. It was during this time that God called her into the ministry, and commissioned her to go into the world on His behalf with the greater power from above; to confront and plunder the kingdom of darkness and to populate heaven, setting the captives free, healing the sick and training and equipping the body of Christ. Dr. Yamthe attended and graduated from the International Miracle Institute and received a doctorate degree in Christian Theology in 2012 and doctorate degree in Divinity in 2013 under the ordination of Dr. Christian Harfouche.
She, alongside her husband, are the founders of Chantal Yamthe Ministries in Austin, TX and have planted two churches under the ministry in the country of Cameroon, Africa. This ministry’s mission is to train leaders worldwide and establish a people through the teaching and preaching of the Word of God, who will seek God with their whole heart while demonstrating the power of God.
Chantal Yamthe Ministries’ vision is for the believers to walk in the miraculous, and to see the whole world invaded with the greater power of God, and every believer not settle for anything less than God’s best for their lives.
Samuel Theophane Yamthe, a native Babouantou-Cameroonian, is one of seven children, three boys and four girls. In 1985 after completing high school, Samuel immigrated to the USA on a student visa. His field of study was electrical engineering. While attending The University of the District of Columbia, he was active in the university's student organization and was at one point, vice-president of the CAMSA (Cameroonian Student Association) Washington DC metro Area.
After graduation from The University of The District of Columbia, Samuel matriculated at Virginia Tech where he graduated in 1993 with a Master Degree in Electrical Engineering. Subsequently, he secured employment with The Texas Department of Transportation in Austin, Texas and moved to Austin where he has since resided.
Samuel, a longtime business owner, was not raised in the church, but was always a big support to his wife Chantal, even though he could not spiritually understand what was going on with his wife and his four children. It was not until 2009 that through signs, wonders and miracles following Chantal’s ministry, Samuel finally joined the body of Christ. Praise God for His faithfulness!
Today, Samuel is saved, filled with the Holy Ghost and sold out to Jesus. As a ministry team, Samuel and Chantal are resolute to take the Gospel of Christ to the ends of the earth. One family, one mission, and one vision!
