October 31-November 11, 2019
In the midst of upheaval and uncertainty the Presbyterian Church of Egypt - some 400,000 members strong - is planting churches throughout the country. We will visit some of those initiatives in and around Cairo and Luxor. We will also spend time at the Evangelical Theological Seminary of Cairo (ETSC) which marks over 150 years of training leaders for that Church and for Protestant congregations throughout the Middle East. Because our stay in Cairo will be on the campus of ETSC, there will be ample opportunities to get to know some of the students and to hear the inspiring stories of their calls, as well as their aspirations for ministry once they graduate.
We will not neglect the outstanding history of Egypt with visits to the Pyramids of Giza, the Cairo Museum (where Tut’s treasure is displayed in all its splendor), ancient Christian/Coptic Cairo. In Luxor, we will see the Valley of the Kings and the temples of Luxor and Karnak.
Estimated land cost is $2,200.
