We are the student pastors for Empowered Student Ministries at Empowered Church. We believe in the Holy Spirit that is referenced in the book of Acts(1:8) where Jesus says that you shall recieve power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you. The scripture says that we shall be witnesses to the whole world. As student ministers our goal is to show young people not only how to live a life of empowerment but to help them share this life that God has given them with others. Our prayer is that we can be instrumental in helping you find your way to living an empowered life.

God Bless,

Tommy & Sara Gilbert

The Gilberts are a sweet married couple that have blessed and continue to bless the lives of students every week. They play crucial roles in the operations of ESM and we appreciate their hard work and sacrifice!

Tommy serves as our sound and media director for all of our youth events. He also coordinates all Impact Fridays.

Sara directs our student lead worship team. 

Erin Jackson

Erin Jackson is an awesome team member that always has a contagious smile. Students are naturally drawn to her because of her natural gift to lead others. 

Erin is our social media director and one of our key speakers. She also assists in leading ESM in worship on our Wednesday evening services.
