Eric Taylor to Speak at Fall Graduation!

Emmanuel College is thrilled to celebrate our Fall 2022 graduates on Saturday, November 19 at 10:00 a.m. in the Shaw Athletic Center. 31 graduates will be receiving their degrees. 

Landscape Architect and overseas short-term missionary, Eric Taylor will be serving as the Commencement Speaker. 

Taylor is one of those rare individuals who is able to do it all – advance in his profession, run his own business, serve Jesus as an ambassador to people in multiple countries, participate in outdoor high adventure, and last but not least, raise a family.   

He has climbed the 14,000-feet peaks of Mt. Shasta and Mt. Rainier, and in 2013, he summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania at 19,341 feet.

In serving Jesus, Eric is just as adventurous, ministering in Alaska, the Caribbean, Central America, and Africa. He served at the Puani Bible College in Mombasa and supported preliminary construction as an aquaponics consultant in Tanzania. He has helped in church construction and ministry in multiple trips to Costa Rica and Belize. He assisted with building revitalization and new construction for the Caribbean Center for the Deaf in Jamaica. He provided construction planning, consulting and on-going support for the Comprehensive Educational and Production Aquaponics Initiative in the Dominican Republic.

Originally from Grayson, Georgia, Eric attended the University of Georgia’s School of Environment and Design where he received the 5-year Professional Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture. Following graduation, Eric started his own business, Morgan Taylor Design, a landscape architecture design, consulting, and installation firm. 

The ceremony will be live streamed on the Emmanuel YouTube channel.
