Significant time in the middle east
LATE LAST YEAR we ran two back-to-back seminars in Jordan and Egypt. Despite great regional instability, we had larger numbers than in 2012. In both places we ran two streams: one for pastors, the other for emerging leaders. In Jordan, we had representatives from Lebanon, Syria and Egypt.
Here is some of the feedback :
“There is no teaching like this in Syria, so it can take 20–30 years before someone can get into ministry. This type of seminar will accelerate the equipping of leaders by years.” – Philip, Damascus, Syria
“This seminar covered the spiritual and the practical. As a pastor, I feel refreshed and will put new plans in place. I’ll run leaders’ meetings to share what I have learned and I will focus on my team. It has renewed my thinking.” – Pastor Joseph, Beirut, Lebanon
“The teaching was simple and applicable to our context. The stories Bruce shared helped us to understand. It was so practical and related to the daily challenges of the churches here in Jordan.” – Ibrahim, Amman, Jordan
