Emma Patterson — Children’s Ministry Director (outgoing)

Emma has worked with the children of Trinity since 2015 and serves as Children’s Ministry Director. We have known for some time that Emma would be departing soon after getting her graduate degree at UT (she earned her MSSW in May!), and now is that time. We are happy that Emma has received a full-time job offer with the city of St. Louis, MO, but this means she will be leaving us after church on September 20.

Emma grew up in St. Louis, MO and received her B.S. in Psychology from Truman State University. She is a recent graduate from The University of Texas at Austin in the Steve Hicks School of Social Work. She hopes to use her education to enact positive change at a community and institutional level.

Since moving to Austin in 2014, Emma has worked in education, primarily in after-school programs as a mentor and program coordinator. In her free time she enjoys reading, live music, and spending time outside.
