Pastor Emeritus. Daniel(Dong Won) Lee

The pastor emeritus of Global Mission Church dreams of spreading the Gospel to the ends of the earth by taking hold of the motto: ‘Healing the nation and transforming the world’.

He desires to use his wholeheartedness, humor, and keen insights in his messages to help the congregants apply the Word of God in their lives.

This is the reason why he is known as a prominent storyteller who can express the challenging and comforting stories of the Gospel using contemporary language to help people both young and old understand better.

He has served as a senior pastor of Washington First Korean Baptist Church. He is also a frequent speaker for many parachurch ministries that act as a connecting source between different generations. Some of these ministries are New Life Seminar, KOSTA, and Hanmijun etc.
