Rev Emem Esenam
At Hope Waddel Training Institute, Calabar, where he did his secondary education, he was an excellent sportsman who fought for the students and for justice. His many principled fights and defence of the truth brought him before the school authorities many times. Rather than be punished and rebuked, his principal sent for him and prayed for God to bless him and make him a real blessing to his world.
Today, more than 35 years after, he is living in
the manifestation of that prayer. Pastor Emem Esenam, Coordinator of Church of God Mission in Europe, has been a blessing as a preacher, teacher, administrator, counsellor and conference speaker. In his position as Coordinator of CGMI in Europe, he overseas the growth and expansion of the church in 12 European countries. He also doubles as resident pastor of the international headquarter church in London. He has pastored many CGMI branches in Nigerian and outside Nigeria.
Pastor Esenam studied History at the University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) and has a post-graduate diploma in International Relations. He started life as a broadcaster with Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation, Uyo and played professional football in his younger days.
