Working together to build a stronger, kinder and more just community

 

Stonegate Ministry welcomes

Program Coordinator

 

 

Emily comes to Stonegate Ministry excited to be the Ministry Coordinator.  She comes as an experienced teacher, having taught grade 6 for two years and then running a women's GED program in the Jane and Finch neighbourhood for five years.  She is also a recent graduate of Tyndale College's Masters of Divinity in Clinical Counselling program, which included working for 18 months with a women's counselling centre for those who have experienced abuse.  Coming to Stonegate, Emily is excited to be able to use both her teaching and counselling knowledge in her new role.  
 
Emily currently is living in a MoveIn Patch, where Christians intentionally live in an poor, urban community.  The philosophy is to interact with your neighbours and to share the gospel.  She feels that Stonegate Ministry is an extension of this philosophy and loves that Stonegate is first and foremost about Jesus and loving individuals.  
 
In the short time that Emily has been working with Stonegate Ministry, she has stated that she is impressed with the organization and its role in the community.  She has seen repeatedly how Stonegate Ministry loves those in the neighbourhood and how they partner with other organizations and churches.  She is excited to see where this role will take her.
