Get to know: Good Shepherd Association Church
The Good Shepherd Association, built in 2000, was the first Christian place in that area to serve the people of Hurghada. Philip Beshay has been leading this church association in Hurghada for five years, with the spiritual service group pictured above. This church association serves through regular worship services, including Sunday school and youth services. Good Shepherd also has a theater group and a library. Outside its walls, the association serves the needy, through acts of mercy and giving material aid. They host evangelistic events, as well as visit individuals in their homes to share the Good News. Good Shepherd goes twice a year to the True Light shelter in South Sudan, to serve the children there.
