Pause for Pastors, the latest release in the Pause series by Chris Maxwell, includes stories from many alumni and friends of Emmanuel College, where he serves as campus pastor and director of spiritual life.
This third book focuses on finding still waters in the storm of ministry.
As Emmanuel College celebrates 95 years in 2014, more than 300 alumni and friends attending Saturday's Annual Alumni Luncheon on October 4 were introduced to the new president of EC's National Alumni Association as well as the recipients of a special Presidential Award and the Distinguished Alumnus Award.
Many celebrating class reunions were also recognized and alumni from the Class of 1964 were inducted as Golden Graduates of Emmanuel.
Emmanuel College celebrates SEND Week on campus February 4-6 for a special focus on IPHC missions.
We proudly welcome our special guests:

Rev. John Hedgepeth has been a pastor for more than forty-eight years. Before coming to Northwood Temple Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina, in 1968, he pastored in Whiteville, North Carolina, and in the Princeton-Goldsboro area. His 42 years of service at Northwood Temple have been marked with phenomenal success.
Emmanuel College’s Volunteer Corps once again rallied to the call and arrived early in the morning on April 14, 2011, to help install 400 plants around the library’s new reading plaza.
Volunteers included local alumni, the men’s basketball team, this summer’s Costa Rica missions team, and members of the Emmanuel College staff.
Within one hour, all 400 plants were sorted and arranged according to the landscape plan. From 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., volunteers dug holes and put plants into the ground. Lunch was provided at the Emmanuel College Dining Hall.
A marathon-style golf tournament is similar to a walk-a-thon or jog-a-thon. Before the tournament, each golfer gathers pledges. Participants are encouraged to play 100 holes of golf (or as many as possible), at their own pace, while enjoying the fellowship of friends and the benefits that will be provided. At the end of the allotted time, each golfer collects money according to how many holes he or she was able to play.
