Emily Snider lives in Roseville, Michigan with her husband, Greg and their two children. After receiving her teaching degree from Wayne State University, Emily paired her gift of teaching with her desire to build relationships through full-time children’s ministry. In 2006, Emily was hired as the children’s pastor at Christ Community Church. Five years later, Greg was hired as youth pastor and they have worked to synchronize their ministry to the entire family. In 2020, they stepped into the role of family pastors to better minister to the family as whole. Emily is a freelance writer and has contributed to Children’s Ministry Magazine, KidzMatter Magazine, and children’s ministry resources for Group Publishing. Emily’s passion is providing encouragement to fellow ministry leaders while helping churches find solutions for their children’s ministries.
