On the 20th of November, Bishop M. H. Anis led the clergy of the Diocese of Egypt in their annual retreat in St. Bishoy Monastery. The main theme of the retreat was about “Developing Leaders in the Church” delivered by Rev Canon Dr John Benson, former Director of Training for the Anglican Diocese of Singapore, who brings a wealth of experience as a church leader and mission mobilizer.
The retreat with the clergy of the Diocese of Egypt was held over four days. Each teaching session involved rich biblical reflection on the life of the Apostle Peter with application for the Egyptian context. Canon John has raised up next generation leaders for many years. Bishop Mouneer Anis has invited Canon John to return in the Spring of 2018 for follow-up training.
