Emma Taets

Emma joined the Wooddale team in January 2018 as the Senior High Ministry Associate. Emma grew up in the great state of Iowa and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies and Nonprofit Management.

Emma felt called to go into youth ministry when she was just 15 years old and has been pursuing that call ever since. She has been volunteering, interning, and working in high school and college ministry for over five years and loves being able to walk alongside students at Wooddale. Her favorite part about the Senior High Ministry is being able to empower students in the gifts and talents God has given them.

In her free time Emma loves to go to coffee shops all around the Twin Cities, most of the time with senior high students. She welcomes any and all coffee shop suggestions! Emma also loves pineapples – pictures of pineapples, pineapple figurines, pineapple cups, and even pineapple salt and pepper shakers.
