Basic information about

Our Mission

Embark’s mission is to facilitate your discipleship. This means creating opportunities for you to grow deeper in your personal relationship with Jesus. We do this by asking people to do 3 things:

Our Focus

1. Spiritually grow
We facilitate spiritual growth primarily through grow groups. Grow groups consist of 3-12 people that meet regularly and do life together. These groups allow you to learn more about your faith by putting you into contact with content you would not come into contact on your own, as well as connect you with others who want the same thing. To see our current grow group offering, click the button below. 
2.  Make a Difference
You have God-given gifts and skills that He wants to use to make a difference, both for Him and in the lives of others.  We want to help you discover, use them and connect with others doing the same.  We facilitate this learning and “plugging in” in “Next Steps,” a 2 week class that is immediately following our worship services.  Click the button below for more information and how to sign up.  
3. Reach Others
When you EXPERIENCE the life changing power of Jesus in your life, you can’t help but want to share what you have experienced.  We facilitate opportunities for you to learn how to share your faith AND serve our community.  For more information and to learn how we do that, click the button below.

Student Ministry

We have a middle and high school student ministry led by Krashawn Guess, our Student Ministry coordinator.  They meet every Sunday from 5:30-7:30pm at our church building.  Evenings include games, food, worship and a lesson.  There are also several fellowship and community service projects that occur throughout the semester.  Click the button below for more information and how your student can be involved.

Children's Ministry

Our children’s ministry offers a clean, safe environment with age-appropriate Bible stories and activities for infants through 5th grade.  Classrooms are divided by age groups into ages 0-2, 3-4, grades K5-2nd, and 3rd-5th.  Each lesson is designed to teach children the basics of faith and connect kids with kids.  For more information about what we do and checking your kids in to children's ministry, click the button below.

Who is the pastor?

Jud Jordan is Embark’s founding and lead pastor. He graduated from The Citadel with an undergraduate degree and from Columbia Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity degree.

What does Embark's leadership structure look like?

We are a non-denominational church. Our leadership structure is patterned after healthy and growing churches. This is why we are free of destructive “church politics” that often hinder people growing in Jesus. We are also connected with a larger network of like-minded churches, mPact network.
