Welcome to Emma's Personal Page
Please support my call to serve as a volunteer for the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program!
With great excitement I have accepted the opportunity to serve as a Young Adults in Global Mission volunteer in the United Kingdom, starting in August. I will be one of 28 young adults serving on behalf of the ELCA in 6 different country programs around the world!
I am originally from Centennial, Colorado and graduated in May 2023 from Wartburg College in Waverly, IA with degrees in Neuroscience and Psychology. I love spending time outside with friends and family, cooking, and reading a good book.
I am thrilled to accompany the community in London and follow my passion of working with children in the diverse community through a local church. YAGM gives me an opportunity to surround myself with new people in a new place to experience God's love and grace.
As part of accepting this call, I have a goal to raise at least $6,000. Please help me reach my goal by supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation today. Through your donation, you join me on this journey as I grow in my own faith and walk in partnership with our global companions. I am thrilled to think about the ways in which this year will form and transform me.
Support me for one day, week or month!
A gift of $50 is all it takes to support my year of service! You can support me for one day for $50, one week for $350 or even a whole month for $1,500. The total cost for my year of service is $15,000 over about 10 months. I will be so grateful for your support in any amount. Thank you — your gift truly matters!
This page is set up to receive donations from individuals only. If you’re giving on behalf of a congregation or other organization, please visit ELCA.org/YAGMgive or get in touch with me for information on how to give via check.
About Young Adults in Global Mission
The ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program provides young adults, ages 21-29, the opportunity to grow in their faith and work in partnership with our global companions. Young adults in the program serve in churches, schools and social service ministries. Currently the program is engaged in work in Argentina and Uruguay, Central Europe (Hungry), Jerusalem and the West Bank, Mexico, Senegal, and the United Kingdom.
The total cost for one young adult in the program is $15,000. Each young adult is tasked with raising a minimum of $5,000 to help support their year of service. The ELCA commits to raising the additional $10,000 per volunteer through generous congregations and individual donors. If more than $5,000 in gifts is received, the additional funds will help support other young adult volunteers and the future of the Young Adults in Global Mission program.
