And even though we may not be able to be together physically, we are bound together in the Holy Spirit.










Exciting news!  I have released my first book, The Color of Hope.  This work was originally a dissertation that I completed for Apex School of Theology entitled: “Educating the African American Church Toward Those with Disabilities to Have an Attitudinal Change” in partial fulfillment for the Degree of Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Studies.

The book is available on

COVID-19 Update 

In an effort to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, it's critically important that we embrace the cancellations and closures to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, we have temporarily discontinue face to face corporate worship services, group meetings, and all programming until further notice from the Governor. 


Bear in mind our worship services and support groups will be streaming live on Facebook

and via conference call at (641) 715-3580 Access Code: 199-870.


We encourage people to trust God and avoid the sins of worry (which doubts God’s sovereignty or goodness) and panic (which is unloving because it contributes to chaos and harm to others). Seek expert medical advice and implementing reasonable precautions (Prov. 12:15, 22:3).   As this progresses, we will provide updates on all of our events and activities.


We encourage everyone to stay positive! Emerging HOPE Ministries will be reaching out to you through social media platforms as we all get through this together.


God bless,


Reverends Curtis and Dr. Pamela Robinson, Sr.
