Epic Leadership

Get to know a little about our pastors and staff: who they are, what they're passionate about, and most importantly, where they think you can find Philly's best cheesesteak.

Emily Gyimesi

Emily Gyimesi

Fairmount Location Pastor

Emily is from Reading, PA. She worked for Penske (the big yellow trucks) for seventeen years in four different states. She made her way to Epic in 2014, and found something here that so many of us have- community, hope, and knowing that God has something more for us. Emily is our location pastor in Fairmount, and she’s passionate about seeing every single person know the love, acceptance, and hope found in Jesus.

OnceĀ  you get to know Emily, she’ll shoot up to the top of the list of your favorite people pretty quick. You should know that Emily is the queen of random facts and celebrity news. Call her if you need Quizzo reinforcements. She’s been married to her awesome husband, Joel, since 2017 (eHarmony can work!), and they love going to concerts, hitting up breakfast and coffee spots around the city, and soaking up the sun in the Wissahickon.

The best cheesesteak in Philly, according to Emily: Hands down, Dalessandro’s.
