EMILY CUMMINSCommunications Director, Church of Hope
I remember attending a mixer of twenty and thirty-somethings, and as I mingled in the crowd, I noticed a pattern. Every time I introduced myself to someone, the first question I was asked was, “What do you do?” I shouldn’t have been so surprised by that question, because, let’s face it, I was in the midst of a young professionals’ mixer, but the question still took me back.
What do I do? I answered the question, but left feeling like the real question had been missed entirely. I believe who I am is more important than what I do. More than a reflection of the work I have done and am in the process of doing, this website is a picture of who I am and who I’m becoming.
In 2012 I tattooed a little eight-letter word on my wrist that has changed the entire trajectory of my life. “Becoming” is more than just a phrase or pretty idea or token of inspiration. Becoming is a way of life, a journey we’re all traveling on. Embracing my becoming journey has not only empowered other people to embrace their’s as well, but it has stirred up inside me my heart’s cry & life’s passion: to partner with people, to cheer them on, to equip them on the journey of becoming who God made them to be.
So this is me. I’m a woman passionate about storytelling, good cups of coffee, and convertible drives blaring T. Swift’s latest album. I’m a University of Florida and College of Central Florida grad. I serve as the Communications Director at Church of Hope and as a Consultant & Coach for The 4Sight Group. I founded and lead BecomingMe.TV, a resource and community partnering with women as they’re becoming who God made them to be. I’m a PK who stayed in ministry. And I love it. Watching women find their voice and share their story is why I get out of bed every day. And most importantly, I’m passionately pursuing becoming the woman God made me to be.
