We want to thank you for your interest in Emmaus Road Missionary Baptist Church.  Our goal is to clearly communicate a message of the hope that we have in Jesus Christ. This hope is not found in religion or anything that we can see, but only in a personal relationship with Jesus.

At Emmaus Road, we believe that Acts 1:8 compels us to practice this process on three geographical levels: Locally, Regionally and Globally.

We invite you to attend one of our Worship opportunities on Sunday and/or Wednesdays If you need assistance when you get here, be sure to ask one of our Hospitality Team members as they greet you, or stop by the Information Center, located in the lobby.

For more information about Emmaus Road, please explore this website or visit our "Contact Us" page at the top of the site to submit a request.  You may also contact our offices directly at (770)- 964-7007.  If our staff can assist you in any way, don’t hesitate to reach out.   Once again, thank you for your interest in Emmaus Road Missionary Baptist Church - we look forward to worshipping with you soon!


For more than 25 years Sedrick L. Hamner has been preaching and teaching the Word of God to people of various ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. He shines His light to illuminate the path of righteousness for those in relationship with God as well as lead unbelievers to the path of God.

Born and reared in Buffalo, NY, Pastor Hamner accepted his call to ministry in March 1987. His initial sermon titled “Real Love” set the tone for the subsequent messages he would preach throughout his years of ministry. It is Pastor Hamner’s belief that there is no greater love that humankind has ever known than the Love of God through the redeeming work of His Son Jesus Christ. His personal appreciation and faith in God’s love toward him has motivated and sustained Pastor Hamner throughout his tireless years of ministry.

May 29, 2013, marked the beginning of an amazing journey for Pastor Hamner as he received the call to serve as the Senior Pastor of Emmaus Road Missionary Baptist Church, College Park, Georgia. Prior to accepting that call Pastor Hamner has served as Lead Servant of Greater Faith Church, New Bethesda Church, and Mt. Sinai Baptist Church. His wonderful covenant with God allowed him to matriculate through Butler University and the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC). Pastor Hamner has also successfully studied preaching at Oxford University, England. In April 2009, he was inducted into the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Board of Preachers. Pastor Hamner established Walking Thru Life Ministries to expand the reach of his teaching and preaching around the globe. Along with many responsibilities to Emmaus Road Missionary Baptist Church and Walking Thru Life Ministries, Pastor Hamner also serves on several community, civic, and religious boards.
