Pastor Rachel

Associate Pastor - Spiritual Community
Office Manager 
Pastor Rachel has served on the pastoral staff at New Life since June of 2020. She is an Indiana native and a graduate of Taylor University, who came to New Life after serving as a ministry resident at Cypress Church in Columbus, Ohio. Pastor Rachel’s calling is to create spaces for people to belong and become more like Jesus; she has loved living out this calling in Marion! Pastor Rachel is a passionate supporter of women leading in ministry, a firm believer that life is better when we do it together, and a sticky note enthusiast (seriously, you should see her office).
 In 2023, Pastor Rachel married her best friend and favorite person, Matt.  Matt and Rachel enjoy going on pizza dates, mini-golf, and hanging out at home with their cat,  Ashe.
