Emily Robbins joined the staff at West End UMC as our new Youth Minister after serving for the past 2 1/2 years at FUMC of Lebanon, TN. As the Director of Youth Ministry, Emily has the joy of helping teenagers realize that they are beloved by a pretty amazing, mysterious God and how we all get to be a part of what He is doing here on earth. She received a B.A. Degree in Music Therapy at Florida State University and a couple of years ago she started the course work for a Masters of Youth Ministry Leadership at Huntington University in Indiana.
Emily loves cooler weather and living closer to mountains. She spends a lot of her time outside hiking, training for half marathons and taking pictures (many with her iphone). Back in 2003 she decided to quit her job and sell her house to go for a 6 month walk on the Appalachian Trail with her sister. She’s not very good at games, laughs a bunch, loves to have a LOT of fun as long as it is before 10 p.m, is extremely close to her family, talks with her hands, loyal to a fault and drinks her coffee with grass-fed butter blended in.
