Elder Art Belcher


Art has been a member of Emmanuel Christian Assembly since 2003. He and his wife Rhoda have been ministers to college students since 1985; serving as Bible teachers at Ohio State University, the University of Toledo, and finally the University of Akron. Art takes the mission for his life from Jesus prayer in Gethsemane; “…yet not my will, but Yours be done.” His life desire is to see the people of his community meet King Jesus personally, so that they may take the Kingdom of God to the ends of the earth.

Art says he and his wife are perfect for each other; “he likes to eat, she likes to cook.” They live happily together in Akron, Ohio and have three children.
