Christian & Emilie Lamb
Our names are Christian & Emilie Lamb and we have had the insane privilege of getting to be the youth pastors here at Northwest Youth since May of 2017.
How We Met 😍
Emilie and I met while we were both in high school. We were friends for a few years until Emilie knocked some sense into me and asked if we were going to date or just flirt back and forth for forever. We started dating in February of 2014. I proposed in front of a little drive-in movie theater I built in my backyard on September 10, 2016. We were married 364 days later on September 9, 2017. We have had so much fun doing life together and while we don't have any kids we do have one totally amazing corgi named Oxford who is a part of our family (follow his Insta @TheAdventuresOfOxford).
Emilie and I both absolutely love youth ministry and Chicagoland. We firmly believe that youth aren't the church of tomorrow but they are the church of today (yes, cliché but it needs to be said!). Our heart is that students can come to Northwest Youth and feel loved and accepted no matter their background, their race, gender, socio-economic status, or anything else. We are all created by God and we are all equal. We just want to show other people the love that God has shown us. If we could make one wish come true, it would be that every student who comes to Northwest Youth would feel empowered to influence their world by becoming a leader who is fully devoted to Jesus. That's why we do what we do, because we believe in students.
We would love to meet you, hang out, and talk about the latest Netflix series you just binged. If you ever need anything from us, we want to be here for you. Shoot us a DM, send us an email, no matter how you get a hold of us, we want to be there for you no matter what.
