He was set aside in 1997 and in 2002, he was ordained as a minister. That same year, he was privileged to serve as a coordinator for Higher Service for Men for the National Messengers of Peace. The following term, Omar served as a National Music Coordinator. He served two consecutive terms as Secretary for the National Messengers of Peace.
