• Senior pastor                                                                ROGER CANUEL

    Both Gina and I are honored to be here and delighted to serve the Kingdom through Emanuel Church. Prior to arriving at Emanuel, we most recently served in the Augusta, GA area with folks that we dearly love. However, through a set of unexpected circumstances, God has joined us together to serve the Kingdom. The Lord never ceases to amaze us! Gina and I have four children and two grandchildren. Family is a priority in our lives, and we hope that you'll be getting to know ours as we get to know yours. Church family is very important to use as well, Jesus and his people continue to transform us. Being eternally grateful for that, we love to see others have the same transformative experience with Jesus and his people that we're having. We're grateful for the opportunity to reach out together with you and offer the hope of Jesus to those who need him. Looking forward to getting to know one another. 

    God's peace, Roger and Gina.

  • LAY LEADER                                                                     RANDY WATSON

    My name is Randy Watson. I've served as Lay Leader at Emanuel for the last 10 years. I grew up worshiping at Emanuel, it's my family church. I have many great memories including several pastors that took me under their wing and held me accountable. There was a time where I slipped away from the church, but about 15 years ago I came back to Emanuel. Since that time, I have had several excellent mentors who helped me to grow in my faith, including Pastors Carl Barnhardt, Eddie Morrison, Donna Avera, and Ken Sharpe. I believe my role as the Lay Leader is to assist our current Pastor Sharpe in making Disciples of Jesus Christ. I would like to personally invite you to come worship with us at Emanuel.
