Founder/ Senior Pastor
Lee’s journey has been nothing short a miracle, from sexual abuse, rejection, broken marriage, pornography, addiction, physical violence, and depression. Many believed Lee would have ended up in prison or dead, that was until he was introduced to the love of Jesus Christ. The process has been amazing and painful, but worth the freedom that he now possesses. Lee Identifies himself as a world changer, and walks in unity with the Father as a son. His desire is to see people’s lives transformed by sharing the love of the Father which brings people into sonship. Lee serves as Senior Pastor overseeing Emerge Ministries, does itinerant speaking and is prophetic voice for this generation. He also offers inner-healing and counsel sessions.
Vanessa Rios began her ministry humbly within the precious walls of her home. After experiencing abandonment and years of self abuse her marriage and motherhood would lead her to truly know the Father that saved her as a child.
She now stands as an overcomer of many trials and longs to bring people through the same fire that has refined her. She serves as Senior Pastor overseeing Emerge, leads worship, offers deliverance/inner healing counsel, and leads an abuse support group online.
