Emmanuel grew up in a Christian household in Nigeria. As a child, he believed the only way to escape hell was to behave perfectly. His family moved to the U.S. in 2005 and it wasn’t until his junior year in high school that God showed him (through his cousin) that good deeds weren’t enough to earn salvation. He was introduced to Campus Outreach as a sophomore at Houston Baptist University and was discipled by Tyler Clark. As he became more involved with CO, he started ministering to his fellow teammates on the HBU soccer team. He recently joined staff and continues to work with college students and athletes.
