First Missions Roundtable in the Middle East

First Missions Roundtable in the Middle East: 

Ripe for the Harvest

11-12 October 2018

Recently, All Saints Cathedral hosted three incredible conferences in the All Saints Garden Conference Center, the third of which was the First Ever Missions Round Table in the Middle East! This conference was an amazing gathering of many people serving the Lord in a variety of capacities all throughout the Middle East.

The conference included an inspiring opening speech by Professor David Shenk, as well as presentations on ongoing and upcoming development projects throughout the Middle East. Bishop Mouneer spoke on the importance of improving education here in Egypt and elsewhere; Bishop Samy talked about how theological education, like that happening at Alexandria School of Theology, is crucial to developing mature Christian leaders; Archbishop Ezekiel Kondo shared about the challenges the church in Sudan is facing and the missions opportunities there; and International Design and Development (IDD) gave a presentation on the partnership they are doing with the Diocese to expand the University in Gambella. In addition to these presentations, there was plenty of time for networking and conversation.

The conference concluded with a beautiful Eucharist service in the evening, where we celebrated the unity of the Church through sharing in the Holy Communion together. We thank Bishop Kuan Kim Seng for preaching during the service, and Bishop Samy Shehata for translating.

If you would like to partner with us to continue to see the love of God spread throughout the Middle East, please contact us here.

Global South Primates Meeting

Global South Primates Meeting

10 October 2018

All Saints Cathedral recently hosted three incredible conferences in the All Saints Garden Conference Center, the second of which was a gathering of the Primates of the Global South to discuss the structure of the Global South.

We welcomed primates from Nigeria, South Sudan, Egypt, North America, Kenya, Sudan, Rwanda, Southeast Asia, Uganda, Kenya, West Africa, Myanmar, and the Indian Ocean; as well as the “Study Team” who has been working to develop the proposed structure. It was a productive meeting and it was wonderful to all be in one place, here in Cairo! The Primates had the opportunity to pray together, to worship together, and to seek God’s will for the Global South structure through discussion and prayer. They also had time to fellowship together over dinner, strengthening old relationships and building new ones.

Please continue to pray for the spread of the Gospel throughout the Global South and the world. Pray for the Church to be filled anew with the Holy Spirit.
