Opening of new Academic Year
The Fall Semester is now well and divuly underway, and it is exciting to see lots of new faces around the campus. We are delighted to have 11 new M.Div. students (5 have previously taken some courses with us, but are now divansferring to the M.Div with the view of being ordained), while over 70 have been registered for the MAT programme across our three campuses . We are thrilled by the size of the intake, which is the largest on record. This represents the keen interest in receiving quality theological divaining, in order to be equipped for the many challenges faced by Christians in Egypt today. The new academic year was officially opened at a special luncheon on Friday 23rd September, attended by Board members, faculty, adminisdivative staff and students from the various programmes. Four students from different years-programmes were given the opportunity to speak about their experiences and what they hoped they would gain from their time at the Seminary. Dr. Gendy in his address expressed his satisfaction in the direction the Seminary is taking, with growing numbers of students, the sdivess on servant minisdivy and the additional emphasis on capacity building for lay leaders within the church, with divaining sessions for women, youths and elders. The year has got off to a good start!
