Re:Center Ministries

Re:Center (formerly Louisville Rescue Mission) is an organization dedicated to the Christian belief that we have a duty to help the less fortunate. In our case, we rely on the gospel to help prevent homelessness, provide relief to the homeless, and rehabilitate the homeless population by repairing their relationship with Christ.

Speak for the Unborn

Speak for the Unborn (S4U), a ministry born at Immanuel, equips local churches to invite abortion-minded men and women to choose life. They train churches to invite those men and women into a journey of discipleship within their congregation. We highly encourage you to join them on the sidewalk at the local abortion clinic, exhorting men and women with the truth of the gospel.

For more info, email Andrew King.

School Mentoring

We partner with Englehard Elementary School to mentor students with the love that the gospel has produced in our hearts! There are also plans to care for the Englehard staff, as they serve on the “front lines” of a very demanding profession. If you would like to participate in this ministry, please email

Nursing Home Ministry

Immanuel Baptist Church volunteers at Christian Care Communities to serve, build relationships, and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Christian Care Communities is located only a couple blocks away and houses residents for senior living and nursing home care. There are opportunities to attend chapel services and bible studies alongside residents, join residents for regularly planned activities, and schedule personal visitation with the nursing home residents. Also there are opportunities for preaching, leading bible studies, and leading music worship.

Prison Ministry

Immanuel Baptist sends members to minister in the Boyle County Detention Center throughout the year. Opportunities are on Sunday afternoons. The jail hosts three services on the last two Sundays of the month. One of these services is for female inmates.

The gospel need is great in the jail. Every month, prisoners are willing to come hear the gospel preached. The only question is whether or not there will be saints willing to take the good news to them. Also important is the reality that there may be believing inmates in the jail each month, and this may be their only opportunity to hear the Word preached.

Even if you’re not a seasoned preacher, or even if you’re a woman who is only comfortable sharing your testimony to lady inmates, please consider this ministry. They need the gospel.

Immanuel College Collective

Immanuel College Collective (ICC) is an arm of Immanuel that seeks to help her walk in this mission. This means going out to find, connect, and share with students where they are at. This passage in Matthew implies that if we go and share, people will be saved! As the Lord saves his disciples, we are called to teach them all that he has commanded. This means we teach them how to follow him. And following Jesus starts with the local church.
