Omar grew up in Temple Hills, Maryland. He considered himself to be a Christian for much of his childhood into his early adult years. His lifestyle, however, increasingly testified otherwise. He loved and lived for the pleasures of this world rather than loving and living for God. In 2009, the Lord graciously intervened in Omar’s life and saved him. Omar went on to complete the pastoral internship program at Capitol Hill Baptist Church and an MDiv at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He now serves as the senior pastor of Temple Hills Baptist Church and resides in Temple Hills, Maryland with his wife, Stephanie and their three children: Cameron, Leah, and Chloe.
