  • Emily Rentz - Student Ministry Creative Director

    One chilly day when Emily was 10, she borrowed her mom's camera and started capturing the story of classic New Hampshire snow day with her friends. Due to terrible haircuts and an underdeveloped artistic taste, those photos will never see the light of day. However, this experience sparked something in Emily that still drives her today: the desire to record memories, tell stories, and enjoy creativity. Combined with a desire to work in ministry, this led her to seek out a way to use photography and graphic design as a means to create experiences to help people connect with the Gospel. Currently pursuing a degree in Graphic Design, Emily spends most of her time sipping coffee in her favorite cafes, hanging out with friends, beating her younger brothers in games, walking her dog and thinking about the next travel adventure.
