A Look at EMC

Empowered Master’s Commission -Women’s Edition- is a new kind of discipleship program. Our Executive Director, Rev. Shelby Hardy, desires to create an experience that empowers young women to realize they are daughters of the King so that they can go out and Impact the world. We do this by giving young women the opportunity to be fully surrendered to God of a season of nine month to three years, much like the disciples.  Durning this time they are devoting their time and being trained and equip to look like Jesus.  The whole focus is to guide these ladies in taking their rightful place in this relationship with their Father. At this time, God is calling forth the his daughters, to know who they are and become EMPOWERED by the Spirit.  The goal for the women who join Empowered Master’s Commission     -Women’s Edition- is that like the women in the Bible, though they may have to overcome, they will rise up and become Godly women. 


Empowered MC offers classes to obtain an associate’s and/or bachelor’s degree through West Coast Bible College & Seminary, along with extended time dedicated to prayer, scripture memorization, public speaking, leadership, servanthood, life-skills, and specialized curriculum for women. We also offer opportunities to travel in the U.S. and abroad. We want to raise up a generation of women, so in love with the Father and EMPOWERED by the truth about who they are, they can walk boldly into any arena and excel. This program is designed to help launch them into the next phase of their life with a firm foundation in Christ.

Who Are We?

It's hard to explain what EMC is without experiencing it because it's so unique. It's a school coupled along side intense discipleship. A special aspect of having an all women’s team, is that women will be able to experience how to truly be a Godly sister to other women. They will learn how to work alongside other women, and not be threatened by other’s gift-sets.  It’s not uncommon, for a woman to distrust other women. In this culture, it’s accepted, and sometimes even encouraged, for women to form cliques and operate in unGodly-comparison. This only breeds insecurity, pride, and jealousy. At EMC, this will not be the case. We base this virtue off of scripture, "They will know you are my disciples by your love for one another," (John 13: 35).  Here, is where a woman can come and sit at the feet of Jesus and be healed. She can learn to trust other women and how to interact with Godly-love towards everyone, especially women.  She will strengthen her character and have the ability to encourage others and be excited for their success.

Student Body Info

Our student body is made up of young women, ages 18-29, who desire to grow deeper in their walk with Christ.  We have students come right out of high school, after college, and from the workplace; aiming to be discipled and set a part. Empowered Master's Commission can be both a first step or a next step, but no matter what, we know each student will challenged, changed, and transformed.
