Hey everyone, I’m Rachel! I am twenty one years old and have lived in Baltimore, MD my whole life. I love my family–I love being a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a granddaughter, a niece, and a friend.
In August of 2016, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to serve for nine months as an LDP in the Upstreet (elementary) Ministry at Gwinnett Church. Over the course of these nine months, I have had the privilege of working alongside awesome leaders, and learning what it looks like to be a part of a church that is for the community. Prior to that, I interned in the Children’s Ministry at Community Christian Church in White Marsh, MD and learned what it looks like to reach those who are not a part of any church and help people find their way back to God.
I have just moved back to MD, and will be living in Owings Mills, where I am so excited to be part of starting a new church in that area–United Church. I can’t wait to become a part of that community, show them that we are for them, and lead a team of people to point the next generation of Owings Mills to Jesus.
Some of my favorite things: Spending time with my family, hanging out with kids and students, walking, watching movies, re-watching Gilmore Girls, reading, wandering through small towns, sitting on the beach at the end of a day, music, and fruit and ice cream (but not together).
I’ll be sharing my experiences from this year right here. Follow me on Instagram for pictures and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or specific experiences you would like to hear about.
