Rev Canon Dr John Benson spoke about “Developing Leaders in Church” in 6 lectures at Bishop Ghais Hall in All Saints Cathedral. The lectures were conducted on the 24th and the 25th of November to different leaders from the churches of Egypt across the Diocese.
Canon John, first, emphasized God’s purpose for us in spite of our failure and weakness by exploring Jesus reaction to Peter after his denial to give him a new assignment. The following lecture, Dr. Benson explained the main goal of the disciples was to be Jesus before they were sent to evangelize with the power of His Spirit. He, then, introduced the “inverted discipleship” in which he advised leaders to listen before sharing their experience with their disciples. He also spoke about being filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and the priorities. He concluded the conference with good biblical teaching about the great commission.
