About Emmanuel Christian Center
"Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain." Psalms 127:1

ECC Bishop Michael V. Jackson and Evangelist Louise Jackson founded Emmanuel Christian Center (ECC) in Ruckersville, Virginia on April 7, 1996. Our ministry began as a small, storefront church located on Route 33 in Ruckersville, just 25 miles North of Charlottesville, VA. The vision was saving souls and building leaders. Immediately, ECC made a positive difference in the Greene County community.

In March 1998 due to a growing congregation the church relocated to a facility in the Greene County Industrial Park. This sanctuary became known as "our upper room" for two reasons: it was located on the second floor of the building, and most importantly, you were certain to have an upper room experience during service.

Many signs and wonders followed the ministry. Emmanuel Christian Center broke many denominational and cultural barriers with neighboring churches and the community at large. The goal was to "Take the City - God's Way." As a result, the church experienced both spiritual and numerical growth, so that Emmanuel Christian Center had to once again search for larger facilities to meet the ever increasing needs of the ministry. In March 2001, Emmanuel Christian Center purchased what was once "West 33 Café and Dance Club" and transformed it into a beautiful, sacred house of God.

The ministry in once again challenged by the need for larger facilities to meet the growing needs of the congregation and the community. Emmanuel Christian Center is diligently seeking "The City of Praise," which will include a youth center and many more amenities, all for the glory of God. Today, Emmanuel Christian Center continues with the explicit purpose to save souls and build leaders.
