George and Sara Salloum
After many years working in the corporate sector in Rochester, we decided to explore the possibility of international missions work and discovered that God was doing some amazing things through SIM. Browncroft Community Church commissioned us for missionary service with SIM in 1998.
Saying "yes" to God’s 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, who is married to Lindsay, is serving as a 1st Lt. with the Army and also is attending law school at Vanderbilt University. Adam serves on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and is growing a new chapter at the University of South Carolina.
We are currently located in Charlotte, NC where George serves as VP of Finance and Operations for SIM USA. Sara serves as a Research and Training Consultant, preparing new workers for overseas ministry.
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.
