Victor and Emily Wooten were born and raised in DeKalb County.
Emily accepted Jesus as Lord at the age of 6 years old. She was baptized at 8 years old and teaching
in vacation bible school at 13 years of age. She knows first hand that God loves the children
and desires a personal relationship with them. Emily believes that every child is a gift from God and carries
great potential. He has planted his seed of grace and favor in them for the call he has placed on their life.
“Whether it is helps ministry or the mission field we believe in encouraging each child to believe in the
promises God has given us all and learn to trust his spirit to lead us in his plans, purpose and pursuit for our lives.”
Emily is dedicated to helping young ones understand that God loves them and has a plan for them. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Emily also attended Rhema Bible College in Broken Arrow Oklahoma. While she was there she worked
in the children’s ministry at Rhema Bible Church. She has developed children’s ministries in
various churches throughout the years. We are happy God has planted her here and the children enjoy
her teaching style. If you have a child in the Fort Payne area, we encourage you to take
advantage of this ministry to and through children at Fort Payne Church of God.
