Trace Embry served as a Police Officer in his hometown after graduating from the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. He and his wife Beth began raising their three children in the suburbs of Chicago when they heeded the Lord’s prompting to full-time ministry. In 1991, they moved to Georgia to pursue additional education at Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa Falls, Georgia. While Beth took classes and worked for the college, Trace pursued studies in Christian Education. God was preparing to start a ministry that would rescue troubled teens. Twenty years later their ministry has grown immensely.
Trace Embry and his wife, Beth, have a heart and a passion for the parents and youth of today’s culture. Shepherd’s Hill Academy was founded in 1994 by Trace and Beth. Trace is also the host of The radio show License to Parent with Trace Embry: Insight for Today’s Culture. The Embrys continue to live on campus and minister to each resident as if they were their own children. Trace and Beth have five children of their own and three grandchildren.
