Steve Baker - Lead Pastor
Hey! My name is Steve Baker. In my role as Lead Pastor, I get to do what I love: sharing the good news of Jesus through preaching and vision! I have been married to my amazing wife, Amy Jo, for over 24 years and have three incredible grown children, Carson, Ethan and Savannah. Although we are newer to Emmanuel, the people of this church already feel like family. And although we are also new to living in New England, we feel right at home! My greatest passion in ministry is equipping and empowering people to love and live like Jesus!

Luke Proctor - Family Ministries Pastor
Hello! My name is Luke Proctor. In my role as Family Ministries pastor, I have the privilege of helping with the church's kids and youth, while providing pastoral care to our adults! My wife Dana and I recently had boy-girl twins named Emmett and Jane! We are loving and adjusting to this new phase of life! I'm most passionate about helping people with the thing I personally find hardest to do: being defined by God's grace while being conformed to God's Word. I'd love to meet with you to discuss more!

Brooke Daniels - Church Administrator
Hello, my name is Brooke Daniels. My family and I have attended Emmanuel for over 16 years, and I’ve worked here for over five years - it's definitely a second home to us! I’ve been married to my husband, Matt, for 20 years - you’ll find him jamming on the keyboard most weeks during worship. We have three children: Sophia is 17, Elliott is 16, and Gabrielle is 11. My roles have included a little bit of everything throughout my time at Emmanuel. But currently, I’m an admin helping keep the leadership teams organized and handling all the office Finance and HR tasks. On Sunday mornings, you’ll usually find me in the lobby - I hope you’ll stop by to say hello!

Robyn Montgomery - Family Ministries Project Manager
Hi, my name is Robyn Montgomery! A native Californian, I recently moved to New England to be closer to family. If I'm not hanging out with kids and families here at Emmanuel, you will find me hunting for the perfect latte, making a mess in the kitchen, or hiking on a trail somewhere. I have a deep love for paddle boarding and peacefully gliding on the water. Working in ministry, mostly with teenagers, has been a big part of my life. I served in a group home in California and as a youth minister in Ireland. On a Sunday, you will most likely find me in the kids wing or lobby, so feel free to come up and say hello!

Hannah Kohler - Communications Director
Hi y’all! I’m Hannah Joy. As the Communications Director here at Emmanuel, I am privileged to network with you on social media, the website, the phone, and email but my favorite way is to connect with you in person! I am a blended gal of both the North and South but have made my permanent home here with my husband and four kiddos. With a college degree in dance and a hobby of acting, I am passionate about artistic expression and communication. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns and I would be more than happy to help you!

Hi, my name is Stefanie Goula! I have attended Emmanuel for a little over 21 years and am super excited to have recently returned as the Director of Children's Ministries. I have five grown children and seven grandchildren (with hopefully more to come). When I'm not here teaching, you can usually find me decorating for an event or shopping the aisles of Hobby Lobby. On Sunday mornings, you can find me in the kids wing with my trusty sidekick, Camila. Please find us and say hello!

Ashley Tillinghast - Children's Ministry Coordinator
Hi, I’m Ashley! I’m a Pennsylvania native but moved to MA four years ago after I married my husband, Josh. We’ve been together for 12 years and have the happiest baby girl named Colbie. When I’m not taking care of her or teaching your kiddos, I spend my time glamming up women as a makeup artist. I may come off as quiet but I love meeting new people, so don’t be afraid to say hi!
Michael Webb - Worship Arts Director
Hello! My name is Michael Webb. As the Worship Arts Director, I have the privilege of leading our congregation in musical worship and leading our Creative Arts department! My wife Kaylie and I are so blessed to be a part of such an incredible community of faith at Emmanuel! I'm passionate about teaching the Gospel of Jesus through the medium of corporate singing. Music is an amazing gift that God has given us to express our gratitude and desire for Him, as well as to teach ourselves truths about who He is and what His word says. I’d love to meet you and chat more!

Ed Groh- Facilities Manager
Hi, I'm Ed. In my role as Facilities Manager here at Emmanuel, I oversee the operation and maintenance of all the church properties. This includes the church building, the office, two parsonages, as well as the grounds and parking lots. When I'm not working at the church, I enjoy playing golf and spending time with my wife, Jeanette, and my granddaughter. My goal is when visiting here, you find the facilities safe, clean, and comfortable. If for any reason you feel as if that expectation is not being met, please let me know. I am usually around for both services so you can either let me know in person or you can reach me at my email and phone number.
