Faith story

  • I was born in a Presbyterian family that influenced my spiritual growth in wonderful ways. My church in Port Said helped me in my spiritual journey as I grew into adulthood. I entered the pastorate in 1986 in the First Presbyterian Church in Al-Tayeeba, a village in Upper Egypt, where I was ordained in 1987, and served until I joined the teaching staff at ETSC in 1992. God blessed my ministry in Al-Tayeeba Church with tremendous growth very quickly as he trained church leaders, and as I gained significant practical experiences, which has in turn greatly informed my teaching of courses on pastoral care and counseling at the seminary.
