Emily Casey

Children’s Ministry

Though Emily is not from Jacksonville, she considers it her home and loves being part of the Central family. Originally from Scotland, she and her family moved to Florida when she was 8 and to Houston when she was 14. She then went to Dallas Baptist University where she received her Bachelors of Arts in English and also met her husband, Ben.

They got married and planted in Mansfield, TX to serve at Rush Creek Church Arlington after graduation, until a year later feeling called to the Seattle, WA area. They moved up there together to serve at a church plant. They had their first daughter there before moving to Jacksonville at the end of 2018 to be closer to family. Ben grew up in Jacksonville and Emily’s parents have since moved here as well.

They now have two daughters and are expecting a son in July. Family is a core value to Emily and it is a huge part of who she is today. She has been serving on staff at Central since October 2021 and loves being back in Children’s Ministry. Her greatest hope and passion in this role is to discover, develop, and deploy children in an age-appropriate way and to be a part of all the exciting things the Lord is currently doing at Central.
