Equipping Staff Team

Our staff recognizes the authority of God and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.  We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.  Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.


Gordon McClure, Sr. Pastor
Pastor Gordon was born in Centralia, Illinois and recognized his love for music at a young age.  His love for music grew into a Calling into full time Worship Ministry which caused him to leave his career as a teacher and serve local Churches in Ohio, Illinois, Colorado, and Kansas.  As time went on Gordon developed a love for the Word of God which was fostered by several wonderful mentors in his life.  Gordon is excited to be the Sr. Pastor at Emmanuel Church and believes his life journey has prepared and equipped him to love and lead people as he encourages the Body of Christ and seeks to engage those who don’t yet know Jesus.

God has given each of us gifts and skills, and I get the opportunity to form relationships in and out of worship-leading to utilize and help grow those skills.
