Pastor Emmanuel Asse was born on November 2, 1974 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He learned how to worship and praise God, from a young and tender beginning. Growing up in a Christian family with a deep foundation of the word and fear of God, formed a very strong foundation of his preaching ministries. Emmanuel rejected the call of ministry on his life for many years, but in 2002 he rededicated his life to the Lord and came to the revelation that what God had for him was far more superior than what the world could offer. He enrolled in Mt. Olive Bible College and obtained a bachelor degree of theology. Pastor work as a Housing Case Manager, Substance Abuse Counselor & Minister of Health & Wellness Social Service Department at the Harlem Congregation for Community Improvement (Interfaith Community Organization). Pastor Emmanuel work with people of diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds, guiding and supporting them to cope with various family problems and life challenges. He is very active in community affairs and work closely with politicians and law enforcement agencies along with other community leaders.
At Gateway, Pastor Emmanuel serves as the Minister of Community Outreach and is instrumental in aiding Gateway’s effort to be a blessing to the communities it serve.
