A little about Emily...

Emily spent 3 years as a teacher in the public schools. These years trained her to adapt and teach messages that yield understanding in the hearts & minds of her listeners. She left full time teaching to pursue the call of God on her life, and now works as a part of the PennDel Women of Purpose Ministry team, organizing events, writing blogs, and speaking to teens. On her off days, she can still be found working in the schools as a substitute teacher.

Emily is married to her best friend, John. At her church, she serves alongside her husband, who is the Young Adults Pastor, and also on the Women’s Ministry Team.

Some notes from Emily...



Right now, my family consists of my husband John and I. We have one little boy blessing in Heaven. We are excited for God to one day bless us with more little ones that we can raise up to be mighty men and women of God. John and I support each other in the plans that God has for each of our lives - individually and as a team. We are different in so many ways, but we admire one another's strengths. John inspires me to grow every day. He is as a person who challenges me to trust God in greater ways. 


"By Your Side" choreographed by Emily in 2013


I love ice cream! Growing up, I ate it every day after I got home from school. Now, I love to go for ice cream on spontaneous dates with my husband. I am a stickler for organization. I would much rather buy a new organizational tool than a new pair of shoes. Dance is my favorite form of creative expression. I love dancing around in my kitchen to my favorite songs. 


Hiking "The Beehive" in Acadia National Park, ME


I love to go hiking and explore new places. My husband and I will often drive to a quaint town or city, just to walk around and look at all the houses.  I also really enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
