Rachel has been in youth ministry with our teen group since 2005. Then, in 2020, God moved on her heart to get involved in the Children's Ministry. Rachel has a love for God's word, and her greatest joy is to share it with others. She loves to have a good time, and is always looking for creative ways to make God's word come alive for others. She and her husband, Garrett, have three beautiful children who she homeschools. With a joyful heart, she is fervently serving our Lord and our children through our AWANA program and Sunday morning ministry.
Andra and her husband, Rob, have been blessed with three children. It is through children that God has graciously given her a small glimpse of His amazing love for us. She is thankful for the privilege of serving in Children's Ministry and sharing the hope of Christ with kids. As a homeschool mom, Andra enjoys learning and growing alongside her sons and daughter. In her spare time, she practices photography and piano, and loves going on adventures with her family.
Garret has been leading youth since 2005. He graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Computer Science, but with a heart for youth ministry. Having grown up in the church, Garrett transitioned from attending youth group to leading it. Today's young people are constantly being bombarded by a world trying to take the focus off Christ. Garrett's goal is to lead them to Christ, and then to equip them with the tools to live out their faith. When he's not working, Garrett loves anything involving sports, a good board game, and just hanging out with his family.
