Pastors Paul and Patricia Emerson
Due to their faithfulness to God’s calling to take a struggling church in 1965 and put their heart and soul into it through evangelism and sacrifice, North Central is what it is today. Having served as Senior Pastors of North Central Church for 42 years, they retired from the position and now lead our Senior Adults Ministry and both teach Bible classes. Their wisdom and example continues to be a valuable part of what God is doing at North Central. They raised three sons, David, Larry and Steve while serving as North Central's pastors, and now they are blessed with 9 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Something Others May Not Know About You?
We had a ministry segment on the radio for years.
I have a lot of favorite scriptures, but Psalm 23, John 14:1, John 10:14, and John 11:25 are close to my heart.
