Welcome to Emmanuel Baptist Church College and Young Professionals Ministry!

Our college and young professionals ministry is under the capable leadership of Randy Trail, our Minister to students and professionals. Randy is a former missionary with the International Mission Board. He and his wife Kittie, along with their three sons, served for many years in Sub-Saharan Africa working with university students and local churches.  



If you are looking for a church home, a place to belong, we would like to personally invite you to visit Emmanuel.  At Emmanuel, you will find a church that is community oriented. We are more than friends. In Christ, we are brothers and sisters and EVERYONE is welcome at Emmanuel!

We are a church dedicated to the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our pastor, Paul Watts, faithfully preaches directly from the pages of the Bible each and every week. And, as a church, we are fully committed to obedience to the Word of God. Our desire as a church is to live daily what we believe. James 1:22: “Do not merely listen to the word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

We believe that God didn’t command us to simply “go to church.”  He commanded us to “be the church.”  As a community of believers, that is what we strive to be.
