Reverend Savannah Jackson, Ministry Leader
The Bereavement ministry mission is to comfort and encourage the bereaved and work to lighten their burden by assisting them with arrangements for their loved one(s). We provide a process to assure that homegoing celebrations are handled with dignity and are consistent with EMBC guidelines. If you experience a loss in your family, please alert the church office to contact Rev. Jackson


Sister Melonie Reed, Ministry Leader
Emmanuel’s Helping Hands Ministry reaches out to the most needy among us, providing meals and other resources to our local homeless population. Our Helping Hands offers the compassion and love God offers each of us, modeling the personal example of Jesus Christ who stressed giving to those in need. “…invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” —Luke 14:13-14



Sister Robin Rene Koonce - HIV/AIDS ministry
Emmanuel’s HIV/AIDS Ministry offers education, prevention, and free HIV testing to our congregation and the community at large. Emmanuel collaborates with both the  It Takes A Village & Southern Colorado AIDS Project. Ministry members are available for speaking engagements, health events, and training other churches in creating a ministry. The Holy Bible and Emmanuel's vision are the basis for the services that are provided.


“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?”

Romans 10:14 ESV



Robert Burrs, Ministry Leader
Emmanuel's Prison Ministry advances the Kingdom of God by ministering to prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ. We assist prisoners and their families in an effort to bring about healing and reconciliation, as well as assisting prisoners and ex-prisoners in dealing with everyday practical situations. This ministry impresses upon the local church the importance of the call, the charge and the mandate of the church to minister to those who are incarcerated.



Reverend Eric Graham, Ministry Leader
Emmanuel's Visitation Ministry provides home, hospital and hospice visits to sick and shut-in members. The Visitation Ministry ministers to the sick members and their families as needed, and reports their status to the Pastor.

Transportation Ministry

Richelle Gittens, Ministry Leader
We minister to the body of Christ by ensuring the safe and secure transport of members and visitors to the church for Worship Services and Events. We ensure the church van is properly serviced, clean and comfortable
