Amgad describes himself as a “product of Presbyterian mission,” having been born and raised in Egypt where his Orthodox Christian grandparents joined the Presbyterian church. He graduated from Fuller Seminary and embraced his call to serve God as a ruling elder. Amgad served at the PCUSA national offices from 2005-2016, including six years in Presbyterian World Mission when he traveled to 19 countries as a mission coordinator and representative of the PCUSA. In 2019-2020, he served as the Interim Executive for the Presbytery of Des Moines. Amgad looks forward to working with congregations on their journey of discipleship and witness. He notes, “God’s mission is the vocation of the church. Mission is about who we are in Christ and as Christ’s ambassadors in the world.”
