Youth Leaders Training Conference - Zababdeh
"By this my father glorified, that bears much fruit come, you shall my disciples" (John - 15:8)
(Spiritual slogan for the Youth Leaders Conference)
The Church of St. Matthew’s, Zababdeh hosted the Episcopal Training Conference for youth leaders June 22-23, in preparation for the Metropolitan Summer conferences which will be held between 30 July to 17 August.
The purpose of this meeting was to train the leaders who will assist the clergy at the summer conferences. Youth from the following parishes participated in this session: Shefa’mer, Nazareth, Reineh, Ramleh, Nablus and Zababdeh. This meeting was led by Revd Nael Abu Rahmoun pastor of the Church of St. Matthew, Zababdeh, Revd Fuad Dagher, pastor of the Church of St. Paul in Shefa’mer, and the Revd Canon Samuel Fanous, pastor of Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Ramleh.
Events included spiritual fellowship and Bible study.
The Group also broke into small teams to prepare the materials and questions for the panel discussions on lessons and leadership.
The presence of Jesus Christ was felt by all the participants as they prayed, praised, sang songs and worshiped together. They are looking forward with hope to meeting together again at the conference which will be held at the Anglican Guest House of St. Margaret’s in Nazareth.
