During college, Rachel fell in love with the cultures of the world. Involvement with Christian Student Fellowship at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a short-term cross-cultural experience sparked her interest in global missions. Shortly after graduating in 2015, Rachel participated in an internship at New International where God nurtured her passion for advancement and communications. Rachel then recognized her desire for a meaningful career in spreading the gospel and returned to New International in 2017 and affiliated for long-term service.
Rachel serves in media communications to support the work of missionaries worldwide and share their stories. She creates print materials such as newsletters, prayer cards, and displays to help maintain consistent communications with missionaries' supporters. In addition to print materials, the Media team also shares stories of God’s transforming work on New International's blog, through social media, and video. In this way, Rachel is able to give God glory, while allowing missionaries more time in the relational work of their ministry as she provides for their communication needs.
