Meet our Pastor.


Dr. Emanuel Foster

Dr. Emanuel L Foster is a native of Bessemer, Alabama. He attended a local public school and graduated from Jess Lanier High School. He pursued his education at Jacksonville State, receiving a bachelor's in elementary education. Several years later, he graduated from Southeastern Bible College with a major in Bible Studies. Also, in 2010, he graduated from New Orleans Theological Seminary.

Pastor Foster is an assistant principal at Huffman Middle School in Birmingham, AL.                                           

Pastor Foster is a member of Beulah Missionary Baptist Church in Bessemer, AL. He received his formal training under Pastor Patterson's tutelage and received his call into ministry at seventeen. Pastor Foster served in various capacities at Beulah: Sunday school teacher, Usher, a member of the Christian Crusade, and also sang in the choir. 

Pastor Foster's gifts of anointed teaching and preaching have opened many doors for him to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. He counts it a privilege and a blessing to be used by God for His purpose and glory.

Following years of preparation, God called Pastor Foster the Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church pastor in Bessemer, AL, at twenty-one. Pastor Foster has a hunger and thirst for God and His people. He is an advocate for education, secular and spiritual. Pastor Foster lives by the vision that God has given him to the Church, to reach the lost by teaching the cross and maturing those in the Christian faith.
