Trace and Beth Embry have a heart and a passion for the parents and youth of today’s culture. Trace and Beth began their married life in the Chicago area in 1980. Trace and Beth felt the Lord’s prompting to full-time ministry and attended college and extensive training to prepare them for working with troubled teens.
Shepherds Hill Academy was founded in 1994. The Embrys live on campus and minister and counsel each resident, along with a large professional staff. Trace and Beth have five children of their own and four grandchildren.
Katrice is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from the University of North Georgia, in Dahlonega, GA. She began working with youth in 2009.
Katrice has been given an incredible heart for others and there is no doubt that the Lord has placed that burden in her. In particular, she believes that the upcoming generations are the ones that are vital in keeping the gospel around for ages to come. The teenage years are tough. If we can reach them at this age, help them realize the overwhelming love that Christ has for them, there is power to change nations in that.
Katrice loves to play tennis, kayaking, and exploring old tourist towns with lots of history. She enjoys spending genuine quality time with those she loves including family and friends. She enjoys serving in the High School ministry at her church as well.
