Children's Ministry Co-Coordinator
Emily grew up attending Southwest on holidays when visiting her Kamloops family and feels very much at home within the church community. Emily also served as our Children’s Ministry Intern in the summers of 2014 & 2015. She is excited to see how God will be moving and working as He establishes His kingdom in Kamloops through Southwest. Emily is honoured to be the Children’s Ministry Coordinator and loves working with both the children and the dedicated volunteers.
