Since graduating from Evangelical, Omar worked at Philhaven in the community residential program and as an outpatient therapist. In 1998, he took a position at Hershey Evangelical Free Church as pastor for care ministries.
"What is particularly gratifying is to see how God can provide his healing grace to brokenness in people's lives and use the brokenness redemptively for his Kingdom's sake."
Omar also serves as an adjunct professor at Lancaster Bible College and has been a visiting professor at the College of Theology and Education in Chisinau, Moldova, since 1999. He makes an annual trip and has been involved in developing the school's Master's in Counseling program, a groundbreaking program in the former Soviet Union. This year marks the second year of the three-year program, with an inaugural class of 16.
