“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord.” —Isa. 6:3

Beit El-Salam Conference Center, Alexandria, Egypt "Meeting Christ By The Seashore"

A major ministry of the Synod of the Nile is carried out at Beit El-Salam Conference Center at Agamy, on Alexandria's Mediterranean coast, where more than 12,000 persons "encounter Christ by the seashore: each year. It was started as a work camp fifty years ago on the remote outskirts of this legendary coastal city and became a legend in itself. Former Moderator Jack Rogers was among the early campers' group of Egyptian and American youth in 1955 when he was discerning his call after graduating from college. Since that time, hundreds of campers became leaders not only in the Egyptian church and society but also in the world church. The facility itself has miraculously grown, but is in need of further expansion.The vision is to expand it not only to accommodate the demand but also to embrace new opportunities for Christian witness in that land and region. The space is available and time is opportune, but funds are needed. You are invited to be a new "work camper" for expanding not only the facility but also the circle of witness from the center out.
