Nurture your soul with the spiritual support, fellowship, and welcoming environment you'll find at Emmanuel H.M. Turner
We are blessed to have Reverend Joyce Reece Kitchen, a Los Angeles native, as our pastor. She is a strong advocate for reading and education in general, and she practices what she preaches, as her credentials show. Her numerous degrees are as follows:
Pastor Joyce (as she is fondly referred to) has a diverse and rich history of service to the community in addition to being an Itinerant Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
Before and during her current work as our minister and pastor, she spent an enriching career helping others for 17 years as a physician assistant specializing in pediatric care. She also worked as an adoption specialist with the Department of Children and Family Services.
Pastor Joyce also helped build and launch The National Family Life and Education Center, a non-profit agency that provides services to "at-risk" youth and their families.
There is a saying that goes: "You do best, what you do most." Over the years, Reverend Joyce Reece Kitchen has been a vehicle for love, service, and charity. We at Emmanuel-Henry McNeal Turner firmly believe she has done it well, and we think she is "The Best."
Listen to a bless word from our recent worship service!
