Ministry Plan

Emmanuel Baptist Church // 2023–24

A Letter from Our Pastor
and Church Leaders

Dear Emmanuel Family,
It is a privilege to partner with you in seeing the Kingdom of Jesus grow!

Every week at Emmanuel hearts and lives are being changed by the grace of God and the power of His truth. God has worked in many marvelous ways this year, and we celebrate His provision and amazing grace. By God’s hand of blessing, every aspect of our ministry has experienced growth and development in recent years. This is largely a result of your faithful and generous investment in Jesus’ Kingdom.

We are delighted to present to you our ministry plan for the fiscal year of 2023–24. This plan involves the work of about three dozen gifted and devoted people over several months, and it represents the unified hearts of all of our pastors, deacons, finance team, and CPA/consulting firm. More importantly, we believe this plan honors Jesus in mission, expresses faith in God’s direction, and demonstrates fiscal responsibility in wise stewardship.

By this plan, we earnestly and prayerfully desire to press forward passionately in gospel ministry, and we celebrate the many obvious ways in which God is active in our church and in our lives.

The purpose of Emmanuel is to “Love God, Grow Together, and Serve Others.” The plan articulated in the graphic below shows our annual budget through the lens of our purpose. As you review it, you will see the percentage allocation of our collective giving as it flows directly into Kingdom initiatives and healthy church ministry and mission.

We cannot thank you enough for generously giving, serving, and loving God’s work through Emmanuel! As a pastor, I personally pray often that God will financially bless and increase our church families so that they might bless His gospel purposes flowing through Emmanuel. We look forward to all that God has in store for us this year.

As always, if you have questions please ask. After you review the plan below, please click the link to continue to the affirmation page.

Blessings to you as you seek first Jesus’ Kingdom!

With the Pastoral Staff, Deacons, and Finance Team

Love God.





Love God. Grow Together. Serve Others


This year’s plan proposes a total increase of 3% over this past year’s actual provision. The numbers on this plan include both our general fund as well as Emmanuel Global (missions) budget. This increase is modest in view of the growth and needs of the ministry, and it also reflects the real rising costs of a growing, healthy ministry in today’s economic environment. We anticipate that God will use all of us to exceed this goal for His glory and Kingdom. Please examine the purpose-centric graphic, and click the button to personally affirm this year’s plan.

Our Ministry Theme Verse

“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”
—Philippians 1:27
