YUSUPH EMMANUEL

Missions Director

Yusuph is a missionary from Tanzania, a husband to Katie, and a huge fan of Whataburger. At Fivestone he oversees the global mission efforts. My passion for ministry is that found in Romans 15:20, “preaching Christ where He is not named yet.” God has given me a deeper desire to spend the rest of my life in seeing Jesus preached, healthy churches being planted, and villages being transformed all for the sake of Christ.
