Additional Info About Our Church

Pastor Liz Emrey has a passion to share the love of Christ with everyone, especially those who do not feel comfortable in traditional churches. In each of the churches where she pastored, in New York, Connecticut and Virginia, she created special ministries for ex-offenders, people with HIV/AIDS,alcoholics, addicts, refugees and the homeless. After serving four years as an Assistant Pastor at First Baptist Church, West Main,in Charlottesville, Pastor Liz felt called by God to start an inter-racial church in Charlottesville, which welcomes everyone. Many months of prayer and seeking God's guidance led to New Beginnings Christian Community having our first official worship service on Easter Sunday, 2002.

Pastor Liz was ordained by the American Baptist Churches in 1978 and received her Doctorate of Ministry in New Testament Ethics from The School of Theology at Claremont. She has also studied at Yale Divinity School, the University of Virginia and the Shalem Institute in Spiritual Direction. Pastor Liz not only continues to be a student, but she enjoys working with students. Her first pastoral pastoral ministry was the Chaplaincy of the University of Redlands in California.

We meet at Clark Elementary School (1000 Belmont Ave, Charlottesville, VA 22902).
