Emily Kirby

Hi! I am Rev. Emily Kirby. I am excited to begin my time serving Little River UMC! I am a Georgia native, having grown up in the metro- Atlanta area. I am married, to my high school sweetheart, Adam and we have a spunky and wonderful little boy.

I have served with the South Carolina UMC UMCOR team, the local church, and throughout the North Georgia Annual Conference. I will be serving Little River, as a cross-conference appointment, beginning in April. As a Deacon, called to connect the church and the world, I believe the local church provides a direct avenue, to the love and grace of God. This takes place, through relational ministry, worship, fellowship, and continued focus, on following Jesus Christ.

My family and I are looking forward to joining in, serving the Little River UMC family!

Emily is a graduate of the University of Georgia, and Emory University’s Candler School of Theology. She will be ordained as a Deacon, in full connection, this June, during the North Georgia Annual Conference.  Her primary focus at LRUMC will be the development of our Children, Youth and Family Ministries.
