Over the last 5 years Rachel has served The Sugar Land Vineyard as Executive Pastor while enjoying her great love of preaching and teaching. In 2012, she received her two-year certificate in Spiritual Direction from Sustainable Faith and upon completion has embarked on the journey of walking with others as they discern God’s movements in their lives. Rachel’s grandmother was a mid-wife so she had a personal mentor into what it means to “wait” with others for God to birth his desires in their innermost being. Rachel is a very natural encourager, so it is not uncommon to observe her loving others as they share their stories. As she has continued to train through the Ignatian Exercises, it seems like a natural progression to commit more of her time to sitting with others on the journey of spiritual formation. Rachel prefers Zoom or FaceTime but can also do in-person sessions with those in the Houston area.
