Originally from Sacramento, Emily grew up in a broken home, where nevertheless faith in Jesus was valued. So from a very young age, she felt known and supported by the Lord, even in an often turbulent environment.
During a troubled, confusing time in high school, Emily recommitted her life to Jesus and has continued to deepen in intimacy and authenticity in her relationship with Him ever since. She worked as a nanny with little ones for years before becoming a mother herself; and through that experience, God reoriented her entire perspective, teaching her to slow down, listen to her soul, and see the Kingdom of God through the eyes of a child.
As the Nursery Ministry Coordinator, Emily supports our nursery volunteers in caring for the babies of The Village, while also encouraging and connecting with parents. She and her husband David deeply love San Francisco and the community they’ve found at Reality. They feel called to cultivate God’s Kingdom here for years to come.
