Emily Perks
Director of Children & Youth Ministries

Emily or ‘Ms. Emily’, as her students call her, is a long-time Putnam County resident and grew up right here at Teays Presby!  She has been the toddler teacher at our very own, Leaps & Bounds Early Learning Center, for almost 5 years, and has enjoyed teaching young children for 15 years.

Throughout her teaching career, she has worked in several faith-based preschool and afterschool programs in our community and is passionate about guiding children in their faith.

“Being able to do what I love and to share God’s love while I do it, is a blessing. As the Director of Children and Youth Ministries, I look forward to expanding my reach and providing children within our community the opportunity to grow, learn, and serve as part of a loving church family!”

Emily currently lives in Red House, WV with her husband Brandon and their dog named ‘Red Pig’ and their cats named, Puff, Mountain and Laurel.
