Welcome to my blog!
My full name is Rev. Glimar Barbado Melo. Most people call me Pastor Glem. I am a believer-follower of Jesus Christ. I am married to beautiful Aymi, and have 3 wonderful kids: Yanan, Giona and Rosh. We are members of the Presbyterian Church in America. I am under the care and supervision of the pastors and elders of our denomination in the Chicago Metro Presbytery, serve as a pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) student at Mid-America Reformed Seminary.
I am also the founder and President of Open Eyes Mission. For 17 years, with missionary co-laborers, I planted and pastored a church in southern Philippines, taught more than 500 pastors, trained more than 100 missionaries, formed 2 church planting teams targeting Muslims, and facilitated the deployment of more than 30 missionaries all over Asia. Today, I provide teaching, training, mentoring, and counsel to 3 church plants in different regions, and train the pastors, leaders and members of 3 established congregations.
The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
