Emily Ashworth
Administrative Assistant

Emily joined our team in back in 2015. She helped run Push The Rock Harrisburg programs; She led the Push The Rock AAU basketball club, as well as the home school program there. In June of 2018, she transitioned into an administration role. Now she handles the behind the scenes work for both HQ and our International Operations projects.

Emily played field hockey, basketball, soccer, ran track and swam through high school. She played basketball four years at Messiah College where her team made it to the sweet 16 during her junior year of college in the D3 NCAA Tournament.

She grew up going to church and accepted Christ at a church camp during sixth grade, but it was during her time at Messiah College where she learned to know what it was really like to have a personal relationship with Christ. She was challenged by the girls and coaches on her team and encouraged in her faith.

God is teaching me about…

Favorite post-workout recovery food or drink is

The best lesson I learned about sportsmanship was…
While in college at Messiah, we always talked about how basketball was a platform to share Jesus. When we were playing at other schools, that might be the only chance that one person in the gym might have to see Jesus. It really made me think about my actions and words on the court in the heat of the game, how I treated my teammates, and really how I was representing the Lord through my play.

My favorite/ the most rewarding part of my work at Push The Rock is: 

I love details, planning, organization – and I get to do all these things on a daily basis. I get to use the gifts God has given me to support so many different parts of the ministry that is happening through Push The Rock and around the world. My favorite part is getting to hear the stories of growth and love and people coming to know Jesus. I’m proud to use my gifts to support the people that are daily sharing the Gospel through the avenue of sports to their community.

At Push The Rock, we are full-time missionaries and are financially supported by people like you.

Would you like to help to personally support Emily as she serves the ministry with Headquarters?
