The Episcopal/ Anglican Church in Egypt launched a new program to prepare youth leaders to take over the service in the Church in the future.
The program, which is supervised by the Church’s Youth Service, includes specialized courses in theological education and service skills, as 45 young men and women joined the church.
The program lasts for a year and a half, and the trainees attend its weekly lectures at the Alexandria School of Theology at the Church’s headquarters in Zamalek and Alexandria, provided that the graduates are used to serve in the various churches of the diocese of the Episcopal/ Anglican Church in Egypt.
It is worth noting that the Alexandria School of Theology was established in 2005 and its goal is to train lay ministers and priesthood candidates for the service of the Church.
The Alexandria School OF Theology (AST) is a strategic project for the Alexandria region of the Episcopal/ Anglican Church in Egypt, established in 2005. More than 130 male and female students from various Christian backgrounds are enrolled studying theology in Arabic at the undergraduate level, either with a two-year diploma or a 4-year bachelor’s degree, on campus in Cairo, Alexandria, and Minya branches.
