Emmanuel Presbyterian Church
About Emmanuel Presbyterian Church
Emmanuel Presbyterian Church began in 1945 on San Antonio's south side as a mission of Central Presbyterian Church. The original site was in a small neighborhood on Teresa Street, then later moved to our current location at 713 Division Ave. Many of Emmanuel's members are second and third generation descendants of the founding members. A rich inheritance of culture and tradition lives on in each of us. We are predominantly Mexican-American and bilingual, from professional to blue collar workers.
Our Pastor, Dr. Krin Van Tatenhove, has over three decades of experience working with congregations from 700 members to 70. He is also a prolific writer, photographer, and blogger. You can connect with him at these links:
Our Session, which is our Board of Elders, is the ruling body of the church. The dedicated men and women currently serving in this capacity are: Kenny Berryman, Debbie Berryman, Elodia Silva, Melinda Salazar, DeeDee Tapia, and Timmie Arcos. We deeply appreciate their wise leadership!
