Congratulations to Dr. Atef Gendy on the fifteenth anniversary of his service as the President of the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo.
At the end of June, I will finish fifteen years of serving as a President of this Seminary. I found it helpful to share a few lessons I learned during this period.
Days pass very quickly. We don't have the luxury of wasting time on what we are not called to do.
- In ministry one is easily pushed and challenged to be part of fights and disputes but the best lesson I learned is to choose my battles.
- The Lord has blessed me with an abundance of things and encouraged me by many achievements. The best of these blessings were friends, partners and colleagues who made it possible to face challenges and overcome problems.
- One cannot accept the role of leadership and avoid risk taking.
