William and Sharon Emberley, both originally from Newfoundland, are delighted to be the parents of three grown children and 8 grandchildren. Sharon received her BSc and BEd from Pillsbury College in Owatonna, Minnesota. William’s education includes an M.Div. from Central Baptist Theological Seminary and a Th.M. (New Testament) from Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary. The Emberleys served churches in Newfoundland, Minnesota, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. William also serves as adjunct faculty at the Pastor’s Training College in Nairobi, Kenya.

William began his current ministry at Grace Baptist Church January 1, 2019, having pastored previously at GBC from 1993–2016. Both William and Sharon are delighted to return and serve with the congregation to extend the reach of the gospel of Jesus Christ locally and globally. The greatest need of humanity is to be in a right relationship with God. Christ’s death, burial and resurrection means the work of redemption has been accomplished! It will now be applied to all who, through faith alone in Christ alone, will trust exclusively in Christ. The Emberleys greatest desire for Grace is she may faithfully embody that Gospel – this greatest of all news.
