Our exceptional team and vision.
EGM desires for everyone involved in the ministry to love Jesus with their whole hearts, to commit their lives to Him, and to reach their God-given potential in this life. Our service and care is for all aspects of the people whom we serve (physical, mental, spiritual). We want to pass on the vision that anything we do that is not for Jesus is meaningless, but the things we do for Jesus are eternal. We believe that God is using our ministry to change the destiny of Pakistan where the people are ready to hear and see the Gospel. God will change the hearts and minds of the people there and transform the country.

Head of Operations Pakistan
Daniel Saleem is a second-generation pastor in Lahore, Pakistan. His father was miraculously healed of terminal kidney failure in 1997 and gave his life to Jesus. He became a pastor and raised Daniel to love and follow the Lord. As Daniel grew up, he became successful with a good career climbing the corporate ladder. God then called Daniel to surrender everything and serve Him only. Daniel chose to chase after riches in Heaven rather than riches on earth. Daniel is the pastor of several churches in Lahore, as well as the Head of Operations in Pakistan for EGM. Daniel is highly respected throughout Pakistan and is looked to as a leader by many pastors. Daniel has organized and works with a network of pastors and churches for ministry.
