Rachel and her husband Joey moved to Grand Rapids in 2017 and were first invited to Christ Church by her parents. The warm and welcoming community they found here made this their church home.
Rachel graduated from Taylor University with BA in Christian Ministry and served for a short time at an orphanage in Honduras. After returning to the States worked for 6 years in a variety of roles in Kids Ministry at Highpoint Church in Naperville, IL.
Joey and Rachel have two adorable children. Rachel enjoys running/strength training, testing out new gluten free recipes, outdoor adventures and turning their old ranch house into a home.
