Welcome New Student Ministries Pastor!

Michael WilburnChurch News

Dear Church Family,

Mike Srisam-ang accepted the call to become the Student Ministries Pastor at Immanuel Baptist Church. Mike became a Christian in college as God surrounded him with Christian friends and a Gospel-preaching local church. He graduated from California State University Fullerton and The Master’s Seminary, and he has served as a pastoral intern at the First Chinese Baptist Church of Walnut, California for the past three years. Mike and Hannah were married in 2014 and have two beautiful daughters, Charlotte (2 years old) and Lucy (2 months old). Hannah is a second grade teacher and loves art and music.

Praise the Lord for answering prayer and filling this pastoral staff position. Mike and Hannah will immediately begin the process of relocating from Southern California to Richmond, VA. Mike will start his full-time responsibilities as Student Ministries Pastor on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

As Student Ministries Pastor, Mike will shepherd the church by participating in regular pastoral responsibilities, oversee Sunday School education for students 7th through 12th grades and college students, lead Immanuel Youth on Wednesday nights, facilitate regular student activities, and disciple students in the church.

Please pray for the Srisam-angs. Pray for the many goodbyes to family and friends in Southern California. Pray for wisdom as they search for an apartment in Richmond and all the additional needs for establishing a home. Pray for work and ministry transitions as Mike finishes his responsibilities at First Chinese Baptist Church and as Hannah finishes teaching. Pray for their spiritual walk with the Lord and their physical well being in travel.
