Get to know Emma Dickinson
When Emma was a junior at Ithica College, she was invited by a friend to watch IF:Gathering. Immediately struck by the authentic and biblically sound teaching, she knew the mission of IF was something she didn’t want to keep to herself. This call was not just for moms or older women in the Church. It was for her too.
With snacks and blankets ready to go, she invited friends over to her basement to watch IF:Gathering. She started small groups and discussed different messages from IF with campus ministry leaders. She pulled together Young Life leaders and talked about each message and this high challenge to go and disciple a generation.
What Emma didn’t realize at the time, was that God was using this spark of discipleship to affirm her next step after college. Instead of pursuing a career in her area of studies at Ithica, God had full-time staff with Young Life in mind. Today, she’s the Area Director of Young Life for the city of Boston, and wants to spend her life discipling other girls.
Sometimes people want to feed college girls fluff. And I’m not here for that. This was hard-core biblical truth and I was passionate about passing it on.
