After graduating from Concordia Nebraska with a degree in Secondary Education, English, and theology, Emily served as a mission partner in Asia with MCN for six years. She spent two years teaching English and Bible classes in Chaiyi, Taiwan; two years studying Mandarin and working with a church in Tainan, Taiwan; and another two years serving two English-speaking congregations elsewhere in Asia. Since returning to the US in 2020, she is grateful for the opportunity to continue partnering in Gospel proclamation work and to stay a part of the MCN family.
Emily works to connect churches and individuals with needs in the mission field through recruitment, communications, and resource development.
Emily and her husband live in Nebraska where Jacob is an English teacher. They welcomed their first child, a daughter named Nora, in May 2021.
In her free time, Emily enjoys reading and writing, playing board games, watching college basketball, drinking coffee, and having deep conversations.
