Pastor Gregg S. Magee, Sr & 1st Lady Irene T. Magee

Empowerment Ministries Christian Center (EMCC) was founded by Pastor Gregg S. Magee, Sr. in January of 2007.  During that time Bible study was held at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church on Friday nights at 7:00 p.m.  On June 10, 2007, Pastor Magee changed his service times to Sunday at 11:00 a.m. at Bayou View Apartments Recreation Center.  On January 27, 2008 Pastor Magee began having service at the Teen Extreme Center in downtown Gulfport at 9:30 a.m.  As the ministry began to grow and the hunger for God’s Word became greater Pastor Magee added a Thursday night Bible study on June 5, 2008.  On August 19, 2009, we purchased our first building, located at 1700 30th Avenue, Gulfport, MS. EMCC since has added weekly corporate prayer at 5:30 am on Wednesday mornings. Due to continued growth, and God’s favor, Pastor Magee added a second worship service in 2012 to accommodate members and visitors to EMCC
