My name is Matthew Stahl, and it is a great privilege and honor to serve the LORD as pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church. Our gracious God has given me a loving, virtuous wife, Angie, and five precious children- Hannah, Joshua, Emma, Luke, and Jude. Our daughter, Hannah, is married and she and her husband are missionaries overseas. Our son, Joshua, is serving in the United States Army. Our youngest three are serving here at the church alongside us, and it is a joy to serve our Lord and Savior together.
We are sent out of Wolverine Baptist Church in Wolverine, Michigan. Since the LORD brought us to Bay Saint Louis in 2011, we have seen what only He can do in building His church! He has truly done “…great and mighty things…” (Jeremiah 33:3).
There are many places to serve him here as we grow in the Lord: we invite you to join us at the next scheduled service. As the Pastor, it is my desire that our Heavenly Father receive all the glory and honor and that the Lord Jesus Christ is lifted up, so that others may be saved and raised to walk in newness of life.
