My freshman year at Emmanuel, I was a Christian Ministries major. For my practicum, I had the privilege of going to SafeHouse Atlanta, a ministry that reaches out to the homeless community on the streets of Atlanta. When I transitioned into an English major before my sophomore year began, I never thought I’d get the chance to serve at SafeHouse again. Three years later, I was given that chance to join this year’s SafeHouse team to help lead worship.

In his first semester as a full-time professor in the Natural Sciences Department, Dr. Jonathan Howell felt at times like he was in survival mode, not having had a chance to personalize his lessons.
Many of Dr. Howell’s students however would beg to differ.
“I'm absolutely astounded at how Dr. Howell interacts with the students in and out of the classroom,” one student said. “He is always so understanding and anxious to help us with whatever we need. It's nice to see a staff member that strives to be a part of this EC community as much as he does.”
EC Alumnus, Brent Farley (’07), always wanted to be his own boss.
Growing up in Virginia, Brent was affiliated with the IPHC from a young age and decided early on in high school that he would attend Emmanuel College.
“The best part about Emmanuel College were the people,” Brent said. “From students, to faculty and staff, I made plenty of lifelong friends while there that I still keep in touch with today.”
When applying for college, Kaylee Kirby had one thing in mind…playing tennis.

After taking a visit to Emmanuel, Kaylee began to realize her dream college was closer to home than she once thought.
