God then opened the doors and blessed Emmanuel Church with a fully furnished sanctuary. The first service held in Charlotte, Tennessee was on January 9, 2011.
Showing evidence of the calling and qualifications for the ministry, Pastor Blunt was ordained as a licensed preacher of the gospel and pastor of Emmanuel Church on March 27, 2011 by the laying on of hands, and prayers of consecration by Pastor Seon Thompson of Refuge Temple Church of Flint, Michigan.
