The Sheldon Emry
Memorial Library

— Welcomes You —

The teaching of the gospel of God's Kingdom has evolved through the ages. The invention of Guttenberg's printing press made it possible to use the printed word as never before. Radio made it possible to spread the spoken word in the form of sermons. The tape recorder — first the reel-to-reel and finally the compact cassette made it possible for a ministry to reach people far beyond a local church.

Pastor Sheldon Emry was a leader in utilizing all the media available to him to teach the Kingdom message in a clear and concise manner that few could equal. After his death in 1985, the availability of his books, sermon tapes and other literature began a slow decline for various reasons. The cassette was about to be replaced by computer discs; printing and postage costs increased. It seemed other ministers were too busy promoting themselves to keep Pastor Emry's memory and messages alive. If something hadn't been done soon, both he and his works would have been forgotten and lost for ever.

Therefore, in 2007 the idea of a memorial library in his honor was born. What was envisioned was a website where anyone in the world, who had access to the internet, could study his written material and listen to his many sermons. It was to be a spiritual endeavor where the Kingdom Gospel was free and NOT be another money making mail order business. You won't find a "Donation" button on this website. While we accept and have received help as God directs, we don't entice  you to place such gift on a (debt/usury) credit card. Efforts still continue to locate missing literature and tapes so the library can contain, as close as possible, Pastor Emry's witness as he would have presented it.
