“What I love most about working at Emmanuel College is being able to integrate my faith and my job. We are all called to be Christ’s hands and feet…Emmanuel provides me the opportunity to blend my skills as an employee with my servant’s heart. Emmanuel encourages its employees to model to the students the value of education, personal development, and in making a difference wherever you are; so that when they go out from this institution, they are better prepared to make their marks in the world."
