Emily Hornickel Director of Women's Ministries

I began my relationship with Jesus Christ when I was five years old during Awana. Even at a young age, I realized my need for a Savior, as well as God’s great love for me. I am confident that God has placed me here to love Him and love people. I am also grateful for the privilege to share the hope that comes from His grace with a world who is so desperately in need. My husband, David, and I began attending Calvert Grace in 2008. The church has become our second home and its people, our family.
My background is in education, as I spent ten years teaching kindergarten and second grade. God opened doors and gave me the gift of staying home with my children, which also afforded us more opportunities to serve at church. I began to sense God’s call to women’s ministry after serving on our MOPS leadership team for several years and seeing Him at work in the lives of women in our community. I am excited and grateful to encourage, serve, and support our women’s ministry leaders here at Grace!
In my free time I love spending time with my husband and our four children- David Jr, Will, Kate and Emma. You can often find us around a sports field cheering on our kids or the local DC teams. We also love to spend time out on the water and enjoy anything cooked on our Big Green Egg.
