The Young Adult Ministry of EAC-Miramar exists to provide twenty and thirty year olds a sense of community and belonging within the Gospel-centered EAC family. Our goal is to connect, grow and equip our generation with the transforming message of the finished work of Christ. This will naturally result into a people who radically season a needy culture with love, truth and service. Our motivation to live, love, and serve will never run dry as we connect ourselves to the overflowing and life-giving fountain of the Gospel.


The couple’s ministry seeks to enrich marriages by several methods. Some of the methods include: retreats, seminars, fellowships, social outings, and other creative. Our wish is to see married couples grow in their faith in Jesus Christ and closer to each other. We define marriage as a union between a man and a woman (Genesis 3: 18-24)


The Bible opens with a marriage (Genesis 2:18-24) and ends with a marriage feast (Revelation 19:7-10). Your wedding and marriage is meant to be a wonderful, magnificent expression of God's design for your relationship. Our wedding policies are intended to honor God and enable you to begin your married life in a service of worship. We believe that preparing for marriage is necessary and wise, and so have made marriage preparation a requirement for weddings here at Emmanuel.
