Introducing New Confluence Program Director

30 Jun
St. John’s Columbus is proud to introduce the new Confluence Year Program Director, Emma Helms-Steinmetz. Emma and Jed Dearing will be working alongside each other during the month of July, and she will assume full responsibility for the program in August.
Below is more about Emma. We couldn’t be more excited to have her taking the lead here in Franklinton.
Emma
Emma’s passion for community building started young on meals on wheels visits in Cincinnati with her mom. As a college student at Capital University she continued to bring people together over food and good conversation and felt called toward the ministry of community. Each summer in college she worked with YouthWorks and fell in love with communities across the country, spending summers in small town PA, San Francisco , CA, and two summers in Jackson, Mississippi. She earned her B.A. in religion and cultural studies from Capital University and never expected that she’d find herself back in Columbus. After working in a number of nonprofits in recruitment, development, and youth engagement, she knew she wanted to branch back into theological studies. She attended Trinity Lutheran Seminary where she received her Master’s of Theological Studies.
Emma has a passion for working with youth and young women, leadership development, and connecting folks to resources that will help them thrive.
She loves to find all the best columbus eats, exploring unique markets, and staying up to date on her favorite shows with her husband, Cory, and their three pets, Sophie, Lola, and Cami the bulldog.
