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 at Concordia Middle School 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 serving with MCN 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 missionary mobilization, church partnerships, and resource development.
Emily and her husband live in Omaha, Nebraska where Jacob is an English teacher and Emily works from home while hanging out with their two young daughters.
In her free time, Emily enjoys reading and writing, playing board games, watching college basketball, drinking coffee, and having deep conversations.
