Emmanuel Haqq | Senior Pastor
Pastor Haqq, who has a Ph.D. in physics, came to this area to teach and do research in physics at UMass. After several years, it became clear that the Lord had another plan for his life as he became involved with establishing a body of believers at Dwight Chapel. After a period of training, he was ordained by the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference. He has served as pastor for over 40 years and enjoys sneaking science into his sermons whenever possible. An important part of his ministry has been his leadership at the All India Institute for Evangelism where he combines his knowledge of science and Scripture to help equip lay leaders to reach India with the gospel.
He and his wife Jill have four adult children and six grandchildren and make their home in Belchertown.
