EVANGELISM – OUTREACH – ENCOURAGEMENT
Two City Pastor Training Events
AL MINYA & BENI SUEF
Pastors, Al Minya – Outreach Evangelism Training Seminars
Pastors, Beni Suef – Outreach Evangelism Training Seminars
This Month Pastor Habib organized and ministered in two different training sessions for pastors and church leaders in Al Minya and Beni Suef. 30 pastors met in each city to study God’s Word and develop practical outreach strategies to help one another evangelize the cities and villages where their churches are located.
We are looking to change their lives and encourage them to hear the voice of God and move further into His purpose for their lives and ministries and to reach the people of our nation.
HOW DO WE OBEY THE WORD?
We studied from the book of Jonah about God’s intention to save the people of Nineveh rather than judge and destroy them. Jonah went to them only to decree their Judgement and Destruction; not once did he even suggest that they repent. Jonah hated and feared them, they were the enemies of his people; he wanted them to perish. God’s mercy was for their salvation despite the unwillingness of the prophet.
WE DO THE SAME WHEN WE FAIL TO TAKE THE GOSPEL TO THE LOST!
Our role is to preach and deliver the message to all human beings, not only those we love or want, but salvation for all.
In both places we experienced a very deep time of conviction and dedication; many of them made a vow that they would start an Evangelism movement in their villages and in their churches.
We also gathered around and fervently prayed for a family that will be going into Lebanon to preach the Gospel to the Syrian Refugees now living there.
OUR VISION IS TO DEVELOP AND SEND MINISTRY, NOT ONLY HERE IN EGYPT, BUT THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST!
