At Emmanuel College, we call this EC Serve.
"Service to others is an natural outgrowth of our Christian walk, regardless of career paths,” EC President Ron White says. “May we never tire of doing good."
EC Serve is all that and more:
- Doing humanitarian work in the name of Jesus
- Linking with people and organizations already serving
- Serving with specialty ministries
- Serving to become a crucial and critical part of our witness
- Incorporating Emmanuel’s mission statement into EC Serve
- Touching and changing lives for eternity
Recent examples include mission trips to Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, New Orleans and Nashville; the MLK Day of Service at Royston Elementary; volunteers with organizations like SafeHouse, Crisis Pregnancy Center, The Ark Family Preservation Center, and many more.

Emmanuel College has been honored many years to be named to the U.S. President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Our students, faculty and staff invest countless hours in serving others in our local communities, in other states and other countries.
EC Serve is the heart of who we are and what we do at Emmanuel College. Ephesians 2:10 explains it well: "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."

Topics to be covered
How well can you defend your faith? What would you say if an atheist challenged your deepest convictions about God and the Bible? In this session Sean will role play an atheist, raise tough questions against the faith, and see how well the audience can defend their faith. Then Sean will step out of character and help students directly learn from the experience.
HOMOSEXUALITY: COMPASSION AND CLARITY
The issue of homosexuality is here to stay. There’s no avoiding it. The key question is how Christians will respond to this critical issue. Sean will offer a biblically informed yet gracious answer to help us respond with clarity and compassion.
WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT PORNOGRAPHY?
Pornography is more accessible, accepted, and aggressive than ever before. It is a HUGE problem for young people, including Christian teens. This session will provide insight, hope, and direction for young people to avoid the snare of pornography.
Dr. Sean McDowell is a gifted communicator with a passion for equipping the church, and in particular young people, to make the case for the Christian faith. He connects with audiences in a tangible way through humor and stories while imparting hard evidence and logical support for viewing all areas of life through a Biblical worldview.
