A cradle Presbyterian, Rachel was baptized in Newport News, Virginia, raised in Idaho, and has served the church in places as far as Ghana and South Africa. She was privileged to have served as a student minister at the Brick Presbyterian Church in New York City. Before arriving here, Rachel was an associate pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Bloomington, Indiana. She studied International Relations at Carleton College in Minnesota and completed her Master of Divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary.
Moving from a life-long passion to walk with children in their faith journey, she completed her certification as a Christian Educator in 2012. You might just see her out walking her standard poodle, Basil.
Rachel began her ministry with us in August 2014.
