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 is Vanessa Potter. 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: Jeffery Martinez, Shelly Franco, Angie Gudino, Teresa Hernandez, and Teresa Colmenero. We deeply appreciate their wise leadership!
