Board Member

The only daughter of Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship, she is an author and a speaker, traveling to churches and organizations nationwide. She has appeared on numerous media outlets including Focus on the Family and the Huckabee Show.

In her book Dancing with Max, Emily and her father, Chuck Colson, shared the struggle and beauty of life with Max, Emily’s son with autism. The book was awarded “Book of the Year” by the Autism Society. Through her message, Emily has inspired many to persevere through their own challenges, and see the gifts.

Emily has been a single mother for most of Max’s life, with hard fought lessons in life, love and a whole lot of laughter. Emily and Max live on the coast of New England where they can often be found dancing.
