Lower Brandywine Presbyterian Church announced the arrival of the Rev. Emma Horn.

Horn began her pastoral leadership March 10.

Horn joins the Rev. Dave Lovelace, who has served as solo pastor at Lower Brandywine since October 2000, each having accepted calls to serve as co-pastors of the church.

Lower Brandywine’s Session and Congregation approved this new co-pastor model Jan. 27. This change, resulting in the expansion of its worship leadership team, reflects Lower Brandywine’s anticipation of its 300th anniversary in October 2020 and reinforces the church’s commitment to its mission: “Welcoming all, worshipping Christ, witnessing to God’s love.”

Horn joins Lower Brandywine after nearly three years as associate pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Newark, where she provided significant guidance and direction to the youth program, realizing a marked increase in participation in the annual mission trip and vacation Bible school.

A North Carolina native, Horn attended Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, Virginia graduating with her Master in Divinity in 2011. She served a number of churches in the Washington, D.C., area before settling in Delaware. Horn is also active in the New Castle Presbytery, currently serving as co-moderator of the Ignite Team, focusing on new and expanding ministries.
