Missionaries were always just an unknown identity to me until I became Facebook friends with one. Now I interact with him, join him in prayer when there is a need, and rejoice with him when great things happen. I look forward to the time he visits the church to speak to him in person

Emma has discovered her passion for college ministry while receiving endless support and teaching from a college ministry as a student at Auburn University. In her junior year she spent a semester serving with the Globalscope campus ministry in Scotland, which confirmed her call to reach college students with the love of Christ. Emma enjoys being involved in creating a community like the one she experienced for the students in Scotland. She believes that by building meaningful relationships with students, she and her teammates demonstrate what it means to have a relationship with Christ. Emma will serve with the Globalscope team in Nottingham, England beginning in 2021, where she will be part of a campus ministry that shows God’s love to students and provides a safe place where they feel accepted and learn about Jesus.
Prayer Request: For opportunities to grow in my faith and to invest in the people around me. Also to avoid procrastination, be joyful and hopeful when I face challenges during the preparation process, and to be brave as I ask people to partner with me and build relationships through this process.
