Emily Ashworth
Sports Ministry Associate

Emily joined our team in 2015 and works hard behind the scenes learning the ministry. She helps run Push The Rock programs in the Harrisburg area, while pouring into the lives of her students at West Shore Christian Academy where she and others teach PE and Health classes, coach, and disciple students. She leads the Push The Rock AAU basketball club in the Harrisburg area, as well as the home school program there.

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.

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.
