HI My name is Emma Englesby. I am the founder of Expanding Horizons Farm. It all began in my last semester of my Bachelors degree at the University of Wyoming... the story is too long for this little space but all I can say is this is where I come alive. When God says "Delight yourself in Me, and I will give you the desires of your heart..." (Psalm 37:4) He means it! I never thought that this is what I would be doing with my life but WOW, do I love it! When I am discovering, writing, and teaching in this setting with and for these kiddos, I can't describe the feeling with words other than "This is the real me, where I am most active and alive".
I have been pursuing this dream for the last 4 years, and I am completely astounded at how far it has come! Only the Lord could have lead me to change my life goal from Veterinary Medicine to a sustainable kids ministry, and He did. I moved to Fort Collins in 2014, got my Master's degree in Integrated Resource Management at CSU, and then began investing in this amazing camp. I say it is amazing, not to toot my own horn by any means, it is amazing all on its own. I love the way God spoke it into being from the start and how He continues to speak into the future. I am honored and excited to be following Him in this endeavor, it is one heck of an adventure! I am in awe of what it is becoming in its fourth year running, and I am deeply in wonder of all the amazing things to come this year! Won't you join us!?
Board of Directors
Dr. Eric Rapley
I am involved in Expanding Horizons Farm because it combines three things that I love: Jesus, my kids and accounting! My family attended EHF our first year in Fort Collins and they had an amazing week of learning and fun. A few months later, Emma asked me to join the Board and help with EHF’s accounting. It is an honor and a privilege to be involved in this ministry. As far as professional credentials, I am a CPA and earned my PhD in Accounting from Oklahoma State University. I have been an Assistant Professor at Colorado State University since 2016.
I am a part of Expanding Horizons Farm because I believe in its mission and its founder. With my B.S. in Business Management accompanied by minors in Information Systems and Sociology, I am excited to share my talents with an organization that engages and improves the Fort Collins community. I feel privileged to be in a position to help EHF grow and prosper, and I look forward to witnessing its future success.
