George and Sara Salloum
Serving in United States of America
From: United States of America
Who we are:After many years working in the corporate sector, we decided to explore the possibility of international missions work and discovered that God was doing some amazing things through SIM. Saying "yes" to His call opened the door to the most fulfilling years of our lives. He continues to provide and equip us for new ministry opportunities, growing our faith and blessing our efforts.
We are originally from upstate New York and have two grown sons. Alex is married to Lindsay and serves as a Captain with the Army. He is currently attending law school at Vanderbilt University. Alex and Lindsay have a baby daughter who brings great delight to all of us. Adam serves on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and is currently growing a new chapter at the University of South Carolina.
What we do:We are currently located in Charlotte, NC where George has serves as VP of Finance and Operations for SIM USA. Sara serves as Director, Office of Research and Instructional Design.
From April 2013 to March 2014, we served a one-year assignment as Acting Field Director for South Sudan, one of SIM's fastest growing and most difficult fields. We provided leadership, encouragement, and logistical support to an international team of workers who serve in remote areas of South Sudan.
Our field experience in South Sudan has provided additional perspective and appreciation for the challenges our workers face. We feel a great sense of privilege and responsibility in our roles of preparing and supporting them from the US office.
