October 31-November 10, 2017
In the midst of upheaval and uncertainty, the Presbyterian Church of Egypt is hard at work. They are planting churches and revitalizing congregations which have been faithful for well over a hundred years. We will visit some of those initiatives and see how God is working.
While in Cairo, we will stay at the Evangelical Theological Seminary (ETSC), where leaders are trained for congregations throughout the Middle East. We will have opportunity to meet students there and hear inspiring stories of their calls and aspirations for ministry. We will visit exciting new church developments in the city and in satellite cities. We will also discuss establishing ongoing church-to-church partnerships.
Traveling south to Luxor, we will see both new church developments and old churches being revitalized by young, enthusiastic pastors. We will not neglect the outstanding history of Egypt, with visits to the Pyramids of Giza, Cairo Museum and Old Christian Cairo, as well as the Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple .
The trip will be led by Marilyn Borst, Associate Director for Partnership Development and Tom Widmer, Director of Development. Estimated land cost is $2,150 including meals, accommodations, ground transportation, transfers, flight to Luxor and touring (does not include $20 visa upon arrival and international airfare). Trip application deadline is August 31st.
