Founder's Story

Pastor Emory Goodman has had a heart for reaching the nations since the day he gave his life to the Lord. Shortly after being born-again, he and his family felt the call of God to head to Haiti, where they served for nearly five years. The Lord then opened the door of opportunity for Pastor Goodman to pastor a small church in Fayetteville, NC, which grew to a solid membership of several hundred over the years. During that time, he authored an in-depth discipleship curriculum (MTS) that continues to be very instrumental in maturing believers all across the world. Ministry Training School (MTS) has been translated into many different languages to include: Afrikaans, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Creole, and the Thai language. OceanSide wishes to give tribute and recognize the great legacy left by its founding pastor, Emory Goodman.  Emory left us, to be with the Lord, on March 8, 2018.  He was a great teacher filled with the knowledge of God and had an amazing ability to preach the Word to whomever the Lord brought each Sunday.  His passion was always the “church”, those who know the Lord and those who are yet searching. We remember his teachings to this day, forever grateful for his wisdom and for the time we all had with him. As a living, thriving legacy, OceanSide Christian Fellowship continues on the path established by Emory Goodman.
