23 Jan Meet the Team: Emily Schneck
Posted at 19:12h in Uncategorized
This post is part of a series called “Meet the Team” introducing you to our Generation LINK staff. We hope it will help you get to know Generation LINK staff members serving around the country a little better.
Where did you graduate from and what did you study?
I graduated from Clemson University in May of 2013 with a bachelor of arts in architecture and a minor in history.
What led you to do Generation LINK?
During the fall of my senior year at Clemson I began thinking and praying about what God would have me do after graduating. I had no desire to continue studying architecture or to pursue a career in the field, and therefore faced a lot of uncertainty as to what my next steps would be. I had heard briefly about Generation LINK while attending Crosspoint, but became really interested in this opportunity as it was presented in the Connecting Point group that I was attending. I was excited about the chance to serve full-time in the church and to pursue growth and discipleship with like-minded believers. As God grew my desire to be a part of Generation LINK, He made it clearly evident that this is where He wanted me.
Which location & what areas of ministry do you serve with through Generation LINK?
I serve in the family & children’s ministry at Crosspoint Church in Clemson.
What are you most excited about in your area of ministry?
I am most passionate to see children grow in their knowledge and understanding of the Gospel as they are consistently presented with the Truth. I am excited to see children recognize their need for a Savior and dedicate themselves to a lifetime of serving and honoring Christ.
What books have been most formative in your walk with Christ?
Don’t Waste Your Life by John Piper
Radical Womanhood by Carolyn McCulley
What are your favorite things to do in your free time?
I enjoy running, finding new recipes & cooking healthy foods, doing craft projects, and almost anything outside (especially when it is warm!). I love tea, both iced and hot, any kind of whole wheat bread, popcorn, and vine-ripe tomatoes.
What is your typical coffee shop order?
I’m not a coffee fan, so I don’t visit them frequently… but when I do, either hot tea or a smoothie.
