Later, On 25 May 1980, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III ordained His Grace Bishop Moussa as the first Bishop for Youth. It was Pentecost Sunday, and it marked the inception of a golden era for youth ministry in the Coptic Orthodox Church.
In 1989, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III entrusted His Grace Bishop Moussa to conduct yearly conventions across Europe, Canada, the USA, and Australia. These conventions have left an indelible impression on the spirit and lives of thousands of youth.
His Holiness Pope Shenouda III appointed Bishop Moussa to attend several ecumenical conferences such as WCC Assembly in Canberra in 1991, the MECC Assembly in Cyprus in 1990, 1994, and 1998.

Bishop Moussa: From 3Ss And 4Hs to 4Ps
For many of us, Bishop Moussa’s disciplined “Three Ss” marked a key to a victorious spiritual life. “A spiritual father, a spiritual program, and a spiritual atmosphere.” Similarly, the “4H” was unique in content and structure: “Be healthy, happy, holy and heavenly”.
To servants, Bishop Moussa highlighted the four Ps: Prayer, Preparation, Participation, and Personal Touch, which are the keys to having a fruitful youth ministry.
On marriage, he emphasized “Pray a lot, think a lot, feel little and seek spiritual direction”
Bishop Moussa focused on developing and nourishing the body, mind, and spirit. His tender and open personality, united with his active spirit, has reached and influenced the lives of many Egyptians.
And with the inception of www.youthbishopric.org, covering a wealth of suitable material for youth and servants, The Youth Bishop successfully attained to all the youth through multimedia resources.
Many youths, servants, monks, nuns, and priests were disciplined by the love and personal touch of His Grace Bishop Moussa.
