Emmanuel Wesleyan Academy has been providing a quality education to young people that is well rounded and Biblically based.
Along with these two particular ministries EWC operates a broad range of ministries that reach young and old alike.
These ministries include youth and childrens ministry, a monthly nursing home service, prayer support, and heavy support of foreign missions.
In October of 2004 the main phase of the Journey of Faith project was completed.
This project was to build a new church auditorium. The project was started in Sept 2002 under the leadership of Rev. Tim Dotson.
As the building project went forward the church body gave their support and truly lived out the campaign slogan, Not equal giving, but equal sacrifice.
With the new church auditorium completed further expansion of Emmanuel Wesleyan Academy and growth of many other ministry opportunities have been made possible.
Future plans include further expansion of Sunday School rooms in the basement of the new church along with a new church office and pastors studies.
