The Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo (ETSC) has been training pastors for the Synod of the Nile for over 150 years. In recent years, it has begun to train church planters as well. In 2003, Frontier Fellowship helped with the establishment of the Missions Department at ETSC. Since then, our ongoing partnership has enabled the ETSC Missions Department to translate frontier mission materials into Arabic and support graduating frontier church planters. On a need basis, we also help professors promote frontier mission through their research and teaching projects.



Your gift to the ETSC’s Missions Department supports their frontier mission efforts through church planter training, development of frontier mission materials and support for graduating frontier church planters. DONATE NOW



ETSC Summer Internship Program
Each year, ETSC identifies students who have a particular interest in frontier mission. Your gift to the ETSC Summer Internship Program helps provide the funds necessary for these students to participate in a 6-8 week summer internship experience in least-reached communities throughout North Africa and the Middle East. DONATE NOW

Perspectives Development (Egypt) 
The Gospel is quickly taking root in the Arab world like never before. Recognizing the strategic value of equipping ETSC with frontier mission training, Frontier Fellowship helped fund an Arabic translation of Perspectives on the World Christian Movement. Perspectives is now part of the required coursework at the seminary, casting the vision for frontier mission to future leaders of the Egyptian Church. Funds for this ongoing project will be used to print and distribute Perspectives books, train teachers in the Perspectives curriculum and subsidize expenses for classes. DONATE NOW

Through the ETSC Missions Department, pastors, lay leaders and seminary students are receiving a vision for frontier mission. Those who sense God’s call to the frontier are being prepared to serve as church planters. As more leaders are trained and equipped with a frontier mission vision, more and more least-reached peoples gain access to the Good News of Jesus.
