Dear friends of ETSC,
Greetings in the Name of our Lord!
In accepting the Board of Directors’ invitation to serve ETSC as its President, I know that I stand on the shoulders of many men and women who have sacrificed to create its 160-year legacy of service to the Arabic-speaking Evangelical Presbyterian Church. I am both honored and humbled. For 31 years I have been privileged to participate in the equipping of pastors and leaders and have watched with gratitude as this seminary has flourished, despite innumerable obstacles and challenges. I am thankful for God’s grace and guidance which has made this growth possible. I want to acknowledge the hard work of my colleagues who have poured their lives into its mission, often without due recognition. Finally, I take this occasion to thank our faithful covenant partners whose prayers and generosity have contributed to its success. This seminary stands as a testament of the global church’s vision and collaboration. Christians from all over the world have shared in its story, and I pray that God will continue to write its story in the lives of men and women for years to come.
Please join us in unrelenting prayer that ETSC will pass this challenging season and that God will guide us in sustaining and strengthening ETSC’s mission. I very much want to meet our partners, and I invite you to join me for a telephone call over one of the video platforms. Nothing would give me more joy than to create strong relationships with the people who have invested in this ministry. You are very much a part of the ETSC community, and we would love to have you visit our campus.
May God unite us in a common participation in service to the Kingdom!
Grace and peace,
Rev. Dr. Samuel Rozfy, President
