Pastor Emily joined the staff in August 2016. At 8 years old, she accepted the Lord on Easter Sunday. Growing up as the daughter of a pastor, God instilled her love for ministry at a young age. Throughout her teenage years, she received mentorship and discipleship from her youth pastor that confirmed to her the Lord’s calling into full-time ministry.
Pastor Emily graduated from the University of Valley Forge with a major in Youth Ministry and a minor in Church Music. She was licensed through the Pennsylvania-Delaware district in 2013. She was able to use her gifting in preaching, teaching and worship leading to minister in Annapolis, MD.
Blake and Emily met on the fields of Dawson shortly after she joined the New Life staff. They were married in May 2018. Now, together their passion and desire is to see the young people of this generation press into a deeper relationship with Christ and seek their full potential in Him.
