Rachel was born and grew up in central Ohio. She graduated in 2012 from Mount Vernon Nazarene University where she studied Education. She then moved to Nagoya, Japan to teach at an international Christian school. During her time in Nagoya, God has developed two passions: serving teens living outside of their parent’s home countries (Third Culture Kids) and sharing the gospel with the Japanese people.
The Lord has called her to transition into serving with Next. Next exists to serve the global church in engaging the emerging generation with the gospel. Rachel will be based in Nagoya, Japan but serve missionary kids across the Asia/Pacific area. She will also serve through local church youth ministry as well as café ministries focusing on building relationships for sharing the gospel with Japanese college students and young adults. She is excited to join Next’s vision of reaching the nations and next generations for Christ.
Thank you! We’ll be in touch shortly!
