Director of Church Development
Associate Director of Church Development
Hailing from Muncie, Indiana, (and High Street UMC), Emily Reece now lives in the greater Indianapolis area. A graduate of both Ball State and Illinois State universities, Emily serves as Associate Director of Church Development for the Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church. Prior to this position, she served several years for the UM General Church, for both Discipleship Ministries (Path1) and United Methodist Communications (Rethink Church/Igniting Ministry). Emily served in lay ministry coordination for congregations in Illinois and Indiana and worked in a variety of corporate and non-profit organizations before beginning her ministry career. She celebrated 20 years of ministry service in April of 2016.
When not working (which is rare), Emily enjoys sewing, gardening, dancing, watching movies and spending time with her family. Her labradoodle, Boomer, and her nieces, ages 17 and 15, are Emily’s favorite “hang time” companions. She recently fulfilled a life goal of visiting all 50 United States and now needs a new travel goal. Suggestions welcome…
