Rev. John EmighPastor
About Pastor John
As a believer first, a husband and father second, and a pastor third, I hope to exemplify the presence of God upon my life. I will work relentlessly to help all people honestly seeking an authentic lifestyle of “faith and works” in relationship to God’s call upon their life. I have a passion for bringing children and youth to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and attempt to do so in a somewhat unorthodox fashion. I have a heart for the sick and will offer comfort whenever possible. I have a desire to move the church towards a ministry of relevance in a society that has dismissed organized religion. I prayerfully want to adhere to the Wesleyan standard “do no harm, do good, and love God.” I would love for you to join me on the journey.
