Emad and Almess were appointed by CBM in January 2015 to serve at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Lebanon, where they first met and studied.
Emad will serve as a lecturer in the areas of Old Testament and Islamic studies at ABTS. His desire is to equip and empower students with sufficient tools to develop their understanding of the Old Testament and to learn how to apply it in their Middle Eastern and North Africa setting. Emad will also develop resources and models for ministry in that context. While both Emad and Almess will be involved in mentoring students in ministry and leadership skills, Almess will also explore opportunities to work with Iraqi and Syrian refugees.
Emad was born in Egypt where he was a high school teacher and later a pastor. Almess was born in Iraq where she earned her BA in accounting. After immigrating to Canada in 2005, Emad worked as a support worker, and Almess as an interpreter. Together, they served among the Arab immigrant community around Waterloo, Ontario. They have two boys Timothy (age 9) and Nathaniel (age 7).-
