Comforted by God’s word… and God’s men!

The first time that I met and “fellowshiped” with Reformed pastors was in 2009. It was hosted and organized by the late Rev. Dr. Ed Bradley of McLean Presbyterian Church and Oakseed Ministries International. It marked a major milestone in my spiritual journey.

Last year, I visited pastors and churches in the Washington DC area for the third time. In response to my request for supervision and accountability, officers of the Potomac Presbytery (www.PotomacPresbytery.org) of the Presbyterian Church in America (www.PCAnet.org) met and concluded that an Oversight Committee be established for me. Since then, for 9 months months now, I have enjoyed and tremendously benefited from the love, friendship, supervision, direction, counsel, accountability and prayers that these men of God have been blessing me with. It’s beyond words!

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. 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) May God give you grace and peace.
