Emmanuel Assembly of God was founded in 1994 by three families who started worshipping together in a rented classroom of Step of Faith Christian School in northeast Houston. The church asked Rev. Daniel Koshy to become its founding pastor and began to grow.
After a few years, the church decided to move to Galena Park Assembly of God, which was under the leadership of Rev. Vernon Guthrie. Rev. Guthrie graciously agreed to let the fledgling EAG congregation worship in the church's fellowship hall and eventually the newly constructed youth center. Rev. Guthrie and his family became dear friends to the EAG family and participated in countless church and family events, including baptisms, graduations, and conventions. EAG will always be grateful to this precious family for their support!
Due to most church members being from the Southwest Houston, the church decided to move to another rented location in Stafford, TX around the turn of the century. As the Lord continued to add members to the church, the members started making plans in faith for having a new worship location to call our own.
After nearly 5 years of intensive prayer, fundraising, and sacrificial giving, Emmanuel Assembly of God moved into its brand new home at 9245 West Bellfort, Houston, TX. The location allows us to minister to many communities and people groups in the South Houston area. We are truly grateful to everyone who prayed for and supported us during this building project.
In early 2012, a new era in the church began as Pr. John David was elected as the church's new senior pastor. Under his leadership, the church has experienced new levels of spiritual growth. We look to the future with hope and anticipation for what God will do in and through Emmanuel Assembly of God!
