Brief about the pastor of the church


Saleem Sleman Shalash he is the pastor of Home of Jesus the King Church.

Pastor Saleem was born in the city of Nazareth in a Catholic family and served in a Catholic church for five years then he left the church to live his own normal life like any other teenager in Nazareth.

Pastor Saleem studied in a Hebrew university a “travel agent” subject and graduated from it.

Pastor Saleem served as a police in the city Nazareth for four years as a volunteer.

Until the date 6th of August 1994 in this day in an unexpected accident the lord talked to Pastor Saleem from a cruel accident and the voice of the lord was clear and he was telling me to accept him as his saviour and in that day I lost a friend then I heard a voice talking to me saying:”Saleem someone died to reborn a new one” and he meant to me personally. So I prayed and asked the lord Jesus to guide me.

So he leaded me to Nazarene church in Nazareth and there I was thirsty for the word of God and there it was the first time I have my own bible and I was hungry for the word of God and to serve him and Pastor Saleem studied in Bethlehem Bible College and he got the B.A and continued serving the lord after he went to serve in another Baptist church in Nazareth and served there for 3 years and continued his studies in theology in the ICB college in Netanya and got M.A in ministry and there was something special for him, he learned in the ICB (Israeli College of the Bible) and in that time there was 12 Arab pastors and 12 Jews pastors studying together in the same place in the same room and we felt what God said about the last days in Revelation “Arab and Jews loving God together” and in Deuteronomy chapter 32 verse 43 “Rejoice, you nations, with his people” and we were living a historical days doing the will of God. Pastor Saleem continued his studies and got the biblical studies and last month in the 20th of May 2108 he finish his doctorate in theology from the international bible college in LA. Pastor Saleem now served in Home of Jesus the King Church for seven years and he is married to Nisreen and he have two children the oldest son Sleman and the youngest daughter Nardeen and he lives in his house in the city of Nazareth and he lives with faith.

It’s the vision of Pastor Saleem and the vision of the church and it’s to reach to many people around Israel with the message of salvation. And prepare people to serve the lord honest servants and keep the city of Nazareth holy that Jesus lived in it.

Pastor Saleem’s wife serves with him in the church in Sunday school and in the women meeting and Pastor Saleem have two children study in school and his oldest son is the administrator of the sound system in the church and his daughter serves by worshipping.

There is many needs for the church but the most important is to pray for the lord keeps this service in Nazareth the city of Jesus Christ.
