Fall Revival with Don Hattaway

Dr. Hattaway
We are so blessed that Dr. Don Hattaway has agreed to be our Fall revival speaker.  Brother Don is no stranger to Emmanuel, having served as our senior pastor from November 1993 to February 2002.  He is currently the longest-serving pastor in church history.  It was my great privilege to serve as his minister of music for over half of that time.

Emmanuel experienced incredible days of expansion and renewal under Dr. Hattaway’s leadership. Emmanuel became known state-wide as a leader in Sunday School and evangelistic growth.  In the Fall of 2000, Brother Don led the church to embrace a vision to build our current sanctuary.  The growth and expansion we’ve seen since that time is but a continuation of the faithful foundation God used him (and those before him) to help lay.

For nearly 10 years now Brother Don has been the senior pastor of Tabernacle Baptist Church in Cartersville http://www.tabernaclebaptist.org/.  That church has also experienced wonderful days of revival and growth during Pastor Don’s tenure.  Brother Don also has a media ministry which can be accessed at http://www.realpeacetoday.org/.

Our Fall Revival will begin on Sunday, October 2nd and continue through Wednesday night October 5th.  The choir will be singing in each service and there will be other special music as well.  You will not want to miss a single service!

My love for Don Hattaway is no secret.  It will be a delight to spend 4 days with him in October.  But more importantly, I want to spend those days (and my time between now and then) in the presence of God, asking Him to pour out revival on His people.
