Terrance and Emily Lemons


T.J. and Emily Lemons are on staff on the Central Illinois team, which is aimed to reach over 120,000 students on over 30 campuses in central Illinois.  The team is currently laboring on 4 campuses, comprised of over 40,000 students: Illinois State University, Western Illinois University, Eureka College, and Heartland Community College. As well, they are partnering with local churches in Peoria to reach Bradley University and Illinois Central College.

T.J. and Emily are passionate about reaching college students for Christ. While in college, the Lemons saw a need for evangelism to their peers and discipleship of Christian students. They desire for every graduating student to be sent as laborers to wherever the Lord would send them. Each student sees themselves as missionaries to their workplace, their families, and be fully equipped to share the Gospel with everyone they meet. ​​

T.J. & Emily live in Normal, Illinois with their two children: Charis and Eden.

Jesus said “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” John 20:21
