Hi I’m Salem (but you can call me Sal!), and I am the Executive Pastor here at Glad Tidings.

I grew up in Jordan, where I met my beautiful wife Randa, and had our two children Farah & Jamal. My background is in Banking & Finance, and I worked at a bank for 22 years, but for many years Randa & I were always involved in ministry as volunteers in the A.O.G. church in Jordan, until we moved here to Canada.

After a couple of years of attending GT, I felt the calling to join the amazing GT team. I’m currently the Executive Pastor, after many years serving as the Care, Seniors, New Comers & Intercultural Pastor.

I love worshipping at GT where we celebrate more than 72 nationalities worshipping together every Sunday. I love the fact that I get to meet with people who come to church for the first time, or are new to Burlington or even to Canada, and I have enjoyed creating life long relationships with many here at GT.

I hope to meet you next time you’re coming to check out GT…You cant’t miss me, I’m always in the lobby unless I’m on vacation. But rest assured that the Welcome team will take extra care of you! We are a Family church, and would love for you and your family to join our big GT Family!!
