Emmanuel: Growing Forward Seeing it is believing it
all brings with it the return of many things. Cooler weather— which hasn’t returned yet, but is hopefully on its way—is one. A new school year is another. Students are back and classes are in full swing. Faculty and staff members are working diligently to give the students an enjoyable experience as they begin another year at Emmanuel College. Here at Emmanuel, Homecoming also arrives with fall. This year’s theme is “Growing Forward.” If you haven’t seen the campus lately, you will surely want to take the opportunity to return for this event-packed, two-day weekend. Many amazing things are happening at Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs, Ga., and God has blessed us in many ways. To see it is to believe it!

The Gathering in Charleston, South Carolina
Nearly 60 Emmanuel alumni and friends met in Charleston, S.C., March 24-27 for the annual get-together commonly known as “The Gathering.” This historic coastal city offers a variety of activities and some of the South’s most spectacular homes and gardens. Last year, the group travelled to Pennsylvania’s Amish Country, and in prior years, they have visited various other locations, including Hampton Roads, Va., and Hawaii. As in years past, The Gathering included Emmanuel’s president, Dr. Michael Stewart, and his wife, Pam, as well as many regulars who wouldn’t dare miss such a special time among friends and former classmates. The 2011 director, Charlotte Humphries, organized a well-planned schedule of activities, including city and garden tours, golf, barbecue, Low Country boil, shrimp-and-grits, and a heartwarming Sunday worship service at her island home’s private chapel. What’s in store for 2012? A great gathering is already being planned by last year’s director, Linda Queen. You can bet it will be an equally-enjoyable four days you will not want to miss! See the back page of the Quad for more information.
On May 14 and 15, alumni and friends of Emmanuel College arrived at the Marriott Resort and Spa in Hilton Head, S.C., for an exciting two-day golf tournament held to raise support for the school’s athletic department.

Spotlight Q ua d m a g a z i n e Fall 20 11 6
feature story Emmanuel Alumnus Clint Ross: Actor, Filmmaker and Professor by Ryan Swails Emmanuel has experienced some exciting changes as it has grown over the past year. Along with all of the beautiful additions to the exterior of the campus and the increase in student body population came a need for new faculty members. These new members add experience and energy to the ranks of Emmanuel’s already brilliant and esteemed educators. One such person is Clint Ross, a first-year professor in Emmanuel’s communication department. While this role is new, Clint is no stranger to Emmanuel College.
Confederate Sgt. Richard Kirkland, “The Angel,” tending a Union soldier’s wounds.
Clint first came to Emmanuel as a School of Christian Ministries student in 2002. A little over a year after having become a Christian, Clint felt God’s calling to full-time ministry. He recalls, “I had my eyes set on EC’s Christian ministries program and nothing was going to stop me.” After four years of hard work, determination and perseverance, Clint graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Christian ministries. After college, Clint spent several years working, using that time to pray for God’s direction for his life. Throughout his life, Clint had had a heartfelt love for stories with deeper meanings and principles for living. He recognized that parables were often Jesus’ favorite tools for sharing practical truths with unbelievers. Clint recalls, “I wanted to be able to tell stories that way and have people go home with something memorable that, in the end, pointed to Christ. … I began to take notice of film and how this medium is such a powerful form of communication in today’s culture.” Clint then searched for a film school that valued quality and utilized the same equipment and technology as Hollywood studios. Clint enrolled at Savannah College of Art and Design in 2008 and, after two years, received his master’s degree in film and television. At school, Clint discovered a real connection with stories based on factual accounts in history. Clint notes, “It’s the stories that people need to hear ... because it’s in the stories that people will remember … and if they can remember, they can relate ... and if they can relate, they will most likely feel led to the discovery and appreciation of the facts, as well as the overall context.”
movie. In “The Angel of Marye’s Heights,” Clint acted as director, producer and co-writer. The film received rave reviews and has been screened in theaters from Georgia to Pennsylvania and beyond.
Clint Ross as Sgt. Richard Kirkland.
One of his favorite historical documentary filmmakers said, “There is far more drama in what is and what was than in anything else the human imagination makes up.” For his thesis, Clint chose to focus on a historical account from the winter of 1862 at the Battle of Fredericksburg. The morning following one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War was cold and loud—but not from the chaos of gunfire or cannons. More than 17,000 federal troops were scattered across a battlefield, dead or dying. Their screams Clint Ross explains the angle of lighting to his Intro to Video Production class.
and moans filled the air for countless hours, and Sgt. Richard Kirkland of the 2nd South Carolina Infantry could no longer stand to let them suffer unattended. He leapt the stone wall at the base of Marye’s Heights and began tending their wounds and offering water. Initially, the Union troops thought he was robbing the dead and began shooting at him but were unable to hit their mark. They then recognized that he was providing their men with much needed care and they began to cheer loudly. He was allowed to continue providing aid to the wounded for an hour. His heroic deeds led to his being affectionately referred to as “The Angel,” a term not given to him by his own company or Confederate soldiers, but rather by the Federals who witnessed and heard of his selfless act of kindness.
Clint is excited about the opportunity to prepare students for careers in media and filmmaking. “I would love to see us move things to an HD format, as well as build up our video program by adding new equipment, gear and accessories. I would love to see Emmanuel College become a school where churches could recruit highly trained videographers, where studios find qualified interns, and be a place known for quality media production. This school has incredible potential and some amazing things are already going on in these areas. EC is ready to take media to the next level, and I came here to be a part of that.” “The Angel of Marye’s Heights” is on permanent exhibit at the National Civil War Life Museum in Fredericksburg, Va. It can also be purchased on the documentary’s official website: www.theangelmovie.com.

Clint describes it as “a real life story about a common, everyday soldier who rises to the occasion to do the noble thing when no one else would. ... It is a story for all generations and profoundly crosses international barriers and speaks a universal truth ... Love your enemies.” After much discussion with some of the most brilliant minds of television and film, he chose to tell this timeless story as a documentary instead of a full-length
Clint points to his time at Emmanuel as a profound growth experience that equipped him to handle the pressures of the film industry. “It prepared and strengthened my faith to be able to navigate the secular waters of the film industry. It really helped me to show the next generation of Hollywood filmmakers that Christians care not only about the quality and excellence of their work, but that integrity is to be the foundation of that work. Integrity is one of the most absent components of the Hollywood film industry, and this is an area where Christians can lead the way.”
Roberson Hall On August 3, Roberson Hall was officially unveiled to the Emmanuel and Franklin Springs communities. To accommodate the large number of people involved, two tours were given: one for all returning faculty and staff and one for Franklin Springs businesses. President Michael
W. E. “Erby” Shaw Reading Plaza The W. E. “Erby” Shaw Reading Plaza is a 3600-squarefoot outdoor reading and study area that offers comfortable seating and wireless Internet access. The Reading Plaza, which
Q ua d m a g a z i n e Fall 20 11
includes an 8-foot central water feature and is located next to the main entrance of Emmanuel College, is the first step toward a major campus landscape renovation. It was completed in late spring 2011 and will be dedicated during Homecoming weekend 2011.
In addition to the Reading Plaza, the new campus signs and streetlights around the library are a visual enhancement to the college entrance off of Highway 29. Spearheading these projects are Alumni President Sherm Smith and his wife, Bett, with the assistance of Jack and Lois Puckett. The entrance signs were dedicated during Homecoming 2009. The streetlights, along with the landscaping, will be dedicated at the same time as the plaza. Many Emmanuel employees, local alumni, and student volunteers donated their time to the completion of these projects. Time is important, but even more so, these projects would not have happened without the financial support of Emmanuel College’s alumni and friends.
Stewart opened both tours with a brief overview of the building and its solid foundation—from the initial gift to the last picture hung. Because of their incredible vision for Emmanuel, the Roberson family felt led to donate $1 million, the largest single gift in Emmanuel College history. This generous contribution was the impetus for beginning the building of a new residence hall.
The Roberson family played a key role throughout the entire Roberson Hall building process. The family, along with the David Allen Company and others who work with the creative minds that made this building what it is, donated many gifts-in-kind. The intricate marble and terrazzo flooring at the main entrance to the gathering hall was just one of the many extras provided. The custom-designed tree represents the theme “growing forward” and includes a Bible verse that clearly translates the message the tree implies.
growing forward Roberson Hall is a three-part building. It includes an east wing and a west wing, connected by a central gathering hall. The east wing houses men, and the west wing houses women. Both wings have apartment-style living spaces, which include a kitchenette; a fully furnished living room; and four bedrooms, each with a private bath. Roberson Hall has the capacity to house up to 138 students. The gathering hall provides a space where students can come together to study, talk, enjoy a cup of coffee, exercise, or relax in front of the stone fireplace. “The opening of Roberson Hall not only indicates the continued growth of Emmanuel College, but it marks our commitment to provide a quality, Christ-centered education to our students. Roberson Hall transforms our campus landscape just as we pray Christ will transform lives within it. We are deeply thankful to the Lord—Great things He has done!” says President Michael Stewart. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held October 8 at 3:00 p.m. during Homecoming 2011.
Athletic Complex Emmanuel has begun preparations at the site of the new athletic complex. The projected completion date for the college’s next big undertaking is June 2012. A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for October 8 at 4:00 p.m. during Homecoming 2011.
Prospective features include a 74,000-squarefoot wellness center, which will house a basketball arena; volleyball and intramural courts; an indoor track; a student fitness center with free weights, cardio machines, and an aerobics room; a swimming pool; a bowling alley; and a food court.
The projected cost for this facility comes in just under $9 million. Emmanuel is still accepting funds from donors who wish to take part in this project. For more information about contributions, contact Vice President for Development Brian James at firstname.lastname@example.org.
