Empowering the next generation
EARLIER THIS YEAR, we launched a three-month School of Ministry (SOM) with the clear goal of training and equipping young people to be effective in their personal ministries and to help empower their respective local churches.
We were encouraged when 50 young people from eight denominations registered for our SOM. A good number of well-known speakers have volunteered to teach on subjects such as personal leadership development, missions, church planting, children’s ministry and discipleship.
It has been very encouraging to see how these young people come to class each day with enthusiasm. We long to see a new generation of vibrant young Christians raised up in Egypt and empowered to live out their lives with boldness and confidence. There are many future leaders among them and they in turn can help lift the Church in Egypt to a whole new level of effectiveness and fruitfulness.
