Emanuel Woods, High School Director

Emanuel hails from Rome, Georgia, and became the Hope for Opelousas High School Director in 2014. He believes his life is a testimony of the HFO mission statement, “Love changes everything,” and has dedicated his life to serving and relating to teens with a similar background to his own. We are so glad Emanuel answered God’s call to “be a light in dark places,” and to make disciples through sharing God’s love.

 As High School Director, Emanuel oversees and plans tutoring sessions, events and bible studies, while keeping a pulse on each student’s progress. In his free time, Emanuel enjoys spending time with his wife, Nasia (our Grace Hope intern!), staying active and studying God’s word.
