Elder Amgad Beblawi

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. After graduating from Fuller Seminary, he embraced his call as a ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Amgad served at the PCUSA national offices from 2005-2016, including six years in Presbyterian World Mission as a coordinator for Europe and the Middle East. In 2019-2020, he served as the Interim Executive for the Presbytery of Des Moines. Amgad enjoys working with congregations on their journey of discipleship and witness to God’s grace. 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.”
