Ordained a priest in the Coptic Orthodox Church on June 9, 1989, relinquishing a medical career, Fr. Beniameen has been a “scholarly” priest ever since.

He was ordained on St. Mark the Apostle’s church at Giza, and served at St. Mary Coptic Orthodox Church, Texas, USA from 1993 through 1997. Currently he is the Priest at St. Mary and St. Mina Coptic Orthodox Church of the Carolinas in Fort Mill. Ever since his ordination as a deacon, he has been an active figure in the Bishopric of Youth, as a speaker as well as an author.

Fr. Beniameen’s passions are the Bible and the liturgy, a passion that developed into an insightful and proficient output of books and sermons.
