Norm Seli comes from a background in Theatre, Music, and Classical Studies. He graduated from Emmanuel College and was ordained in the early 90’s. He has practiced ministry with Children, Youth, and Seniors in a variety of settings. While living in Southern Ontario his whole life, Norm was Minister and Liturgist in an old established downtown Toronto Church for 7 years, a two-point rural pastoral charge for ten years, and since 2005, in team ministry here at Jubilee United Church. Norm is a qualified Supervisor of students and interns, and is actively involved in the broader United Church as the Chair of the Board of Vocation that is responsible for the support, standards, accreditation and discipline of all United Church of Canada Ministry Personnel. Norm is also on the Board of the Toronto Urban Native Ministry and the Common Boots Theatre Company.
He currently provides Virtual Bible Reflections Mondays through Fridays, as well as a daily Biblical Podcast (both can be found on the Jubilee Website). Norm leads in-person Bible Study at Jubilee on Tuesday mornings at 830, Coffee in the Garden Room on Tuesdays at 1pm and delights in Definitely NOT Church (with the Howling Heretics), Men's Meditation/Book Group on Wednesdays at 7pm, Jubilee Youth and creating new things for the always vital Jubilee Community.
When not at Jubilee, Norm can be found at home with his wife, Anne, Henrietta the cat, and his 'oft visiting’ three sons: Matthew, Michael and Paul, most of whom simply love Norm for who he is, even when it’s inconvenient. In May of 2023, Norm became a Grandfather to Halley and this is probably his greatest joy.
