LAMPa Welcomes New Field Ed Student
LAMPa is pleased to add Emma Wagner to our staff starting November 1 as a Field Education student from the MA Program in Public Leadership at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. Emma bring significant gifts in hunger education and leadership, and her own interests in developing LAMPa’s ministry to address gender based violence in Pennsylvania.
Emma Wagner is a native of Baltimore, Md where she is a member of St. Michael Lutheran Church. She has a bachelor’s in political science from Towson University where she graduated in 2013. In Fall 2014l she started at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia to pursue a Masters of Arts in Public Leadership. Micah 6:8 is her favorite scripture passage because she specifically feels called to “do justice”. She has worked with ELCA World Hunger to help develop their “Food for a Week” resource and is currently working on the Gender Based Violence Taskforce of the Delaware-Maryland synod. Through her work with LAMPA she hopes to further develop her skills in policy work at the state level and policy conversations in congregations, especially on topics related to gender based violence.
