The President of the Protestant Churches’ message to the Evangelical Youth and Students of the Middle East:
"The Protestant Church, since its establishment in Egypt, provides its services to all local communities without discrimination."
"The church is not an isolated island; it is a part of society that is affected by its circumstances and challenges and affects it."
"Spiritual and social work complement each other in serving and building man in an integrated way."
"Christ was not isolated from society, but interacted with it and served everyone without discrimination."
"The Protestant Church in Egypt is a pioneer in social work and reflects a real relationship between the church and society."

Rev. Dr. Andrea Zaki, President of the Protestant Churches in Egypt, inaugurated the activities of the Eighth Conference for University Students in the Middle East yesterday, Friday, at Al-Salam House Conference Center in Al-Ajami. The conference is held under the auspices of the Christian Education Council of the Nile Synod, headed by Rev. Ehab Talaat, Elder Ramez Atallah, Advisor of the House of the Bible in Egypt, and Engineer Ayman Anwar, leader of the conference.
The conference was attended by 180 participants representing several Arab countries, including Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. Many Evangelical church leaders from America, Ireland, Nigeria, Kenya, and Mexico also participated.
The President of the Protestant Churches welcomed all the attendees from the various participating countries, expressing his great happiness at the Protestant Church in Egypt, hosting the youth of the Eighth Conference for University Students from the Middle East, along with the participating church leaders.
The President of the Protestant Churches said, "Since its establishment in Egypt, the Protestant Church has sought to provide its social services to all local communities without discrimination. It has also offered - concurrently - its spiritual services. Whenever the church building is built for worship, the hospital or school is built next to it simultaneously. This strongly indicates the leadership of the Protestant Church in Egypt in social work and its concept of the church's relationship with society.”
The President of the Protestant Churches added: "The church is not an isolated island. It is a part of society that is affected by its circumstances and challenges, and it affects it. The Lord Christ was not isolated from society but interacted with it and served everyone without discrimination.
During His service, He was also aware of the conditions of the religious and political community. Spiritual work and social work are two distinct calls. There is a profound scriptural basis for social action, and both complement each other in serving and building the human being in an integrated way.”
