Yvonne Yow 

Media team coordinator

Yvonne is a superstar! God gave her a vision for a media ministry at Immanuel, and she has been obedient to following it. She has gone from using a little hand held camera to now running a multi-camera live stream every Sunday. The best part? Yvonne is all self taught! Her passion for media ministry has her learning something new every day to better our media ministry here at Immanuel. Yvonne is always looking for volunteers to join the media team. Yvonne will be the first to tell you...experience is not necessary!
