Amir Shenouda

Pastor David Holt

My name is Amir and I love serving here at Living Hope. I originally come from Cairo but have called Melbourne home since 1996. My beautiful wife and I have 3 wonderful, and very cheeky, boys.
I own an optometry practice and am constantly amazed by the awesome design of the human eye that reflects the glory of God who designed it. I have come to know the Lord in my childhood at a youth camp in Egypt, where for the first time, I understood how Jesus paid the complete price of my salvation on the cross of Calvary. My favourite verse is Ro 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
In the church I love to preach and teach the Word of God as that helps me to dig even deeper and find hidden gems. I am also a part of the youth and music ministries and the oversight of the church.
My favourite thing is to spend time in the presence of God, worshipping Him with songs of praise. I love to do this with my brothers and sisters but I also love spending one on one time with Him just praising and worshipping Him on the humble guitar.
