Hosea 4:6a (KJV) says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” While many people believe this verse only relates to scripture, it transcends so much more than sole knowledge of the Bible. Because Ryan Woodzell understood that this verse applies to more than just knowledge of the Bible but to all areas of life, Ryan sought knowledge that would prepare him for life in the form of a Psychology degree.
Matthew 4:19 says “Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men (NKJV).”
But how can you follow someone when you have no idea where you’re going?
For Jon Campbell, Wellons Hall Residence Director, the story of the prodigal son was his life. But that story ended once Jon allowed himself to become a part of God’s story instead.
Growing up in Athens, Ga., Jon attended North Oconee High School. A year later, he transferred to Athens Christian where he graduated in 2008.
Many students dream of packing up their bags and moving to Los Angeles or New York City after graduation to work in the entertainment industry. For Sara Ray, this is her reality as she currently serves as the assistant to the Showrunner of the CBS hit show, “Madam Secretary”.
Growing up in Royston, it was a given when the time came for Sara to choose a college that she would attend Emmanuel.
Majoring in Communication Studies and minoring in English, Sara had an instant interest in journalism.
A native of New Zealand, Rachel Burge knew nothing about Emmanuel College when she began getting recruited by Coach Rodney Estrada to join the Archery team just a month and a half before the school year began. However, she had a good feeling about it, knowing God was calling her to be here.
Please join us November 4th and 5th at 7:30p.m. in Taylor Chapel as students from Emmanuel College and Hart County High School put on a production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet.

EC Support and IT Specialist Leo Satara is a problem solver. When he was a child he would tear apart his television set only to try and put it back together, and had a passion for fixing things. Here at Emmanuel, he does just that making him this week’s Faculty & Staff Spotlight.
Originally from Former Yugoslavia, Satara dreamed of playing basketball in the United States. As a teenager in the 90’s his country broke out in a Civil War and all teenage boys were required to serve in the military for one year once they turned 18, something Satara was not eager to do.
EC’s first year Collegiate FFA program traveled to Indianapolis for the 89th Annual National FFA Convention held October 19th-22nd.
