Director of Youth Ministries
Liz Pruchnicki (she/her/hers) joined our staff as Director of Youth Ministries in June 2018. Liz is in seminary finishing her Master of Theological Studies, with the intention to pursue a Ph.D. once she graduates in 2020. Her background is in International Relations, having worked at the US Department of State in the Office of Religion and Global Affairs, as well as Wesley Theological Seminary’s Center for Public Theology on Capitol Hill. She is interested in the interaction between religion and political life, especially in using christian ethics as a framework to evaluate pop culture that is relevant to the lives of Immanuel’s teens. Liz is an avid reader of teen fiction and travel nonfiction. She lives in DC within walking distance of multiple farmers markets and loves gardening.
