New Cairo, Egypt
In partnership with Forest Hill, Kasr El Dobara Evangelical Church has planted a church in New Cairo — a fast-growing, upper-middle class area of Cairo, Egypt — described as unreached for Christ and hurting as their marriages and families suffer.
The vision for New Cairo Church is to care for the small number of Christians in this rapidly growing part of town and equip them to make disciples for Christ by meeting the unique needs of this particular area and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
In 2017, New Cairo Church:
- Has grown to 250 in weekly attendance
- Has close to 30 in small groups meeting regularly for prayer, worship, and fellowship
- Has 60 youth attending weekly meetings
- Had 530 attend retreats focused on The Purpose Driven Life and healing
In 2016, FHC gave its Christmas Eve offering of $710,000 to support the vision for New Cairo Church.
