Emily Harmon Route 45 Coordinator
My Story:
At one point in my life, I felt like I was doing God a favor by trying to save the world all by myself. I began following God from a very young age, but for a time, I thought that I needed to accomplish great things for Him with no help from others. My academic grades were high, but my relationships were shallow. My level of involvement in sports and clubs seemed admirable, but my spiritual health was lacking. Eventually, my life was characterized by burnout, physical sickness, and loneliness.

Over the last ten years, subtle shifts have driven me towards a renewed perspective. I’ve begun to realize that the second half of Matthew 5:16 is just as important as the first: “Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”  God’s desire has never been for me to achieve a lengthy list of accolades for myself. Thankfully, He’s asking me to use the gifts He’s given me to work with other believers for His glory. He is the best part of anything about myself, and now the only reason I want others to see me is just so that they can see God.

Since 2015, my family has been a part of Fellowship Dallas. We love being part of a church that spurs each other on towards purposefully living for God. Along with my husband and two awesome kiddos, we have built strong friendships in our Life Group, enjoyed multiple opportunities to serve as a family, and we’re continually encouraged by how Fellowship is following God’s call to serve others where we live, work, and play!

My Purpose:
Whenever there’s a “big picture” goal that I believe in, it’s natural for me to seek out ways of “Prompting Enthusiasm” in others towards that end. But it’s about more than just getting excited for a moment.  The word ‘enthusiasm’ is based on the Greek root ‘theos’ which means ‘God.‘ So for me, it’s pretty simple: my greatest joy in life comes from prompting others to experience a deep enjoyment of the God who is worthy of any excitement we have to give.

My Job:
It is a privilege for me to serve as Route 45 coordinator on our Fellowship Kids team! 4th and 5th graders are all about fun, friendships, and figuring things out for themselves. My prayer is that Route 45 is a safe place for our church’s preteens to begin discovering how to make their faith in God their own.
