Rachel’s unique praise and worship style is infectious and spans all generations and cultures. She has performed all over the U.S., as well as at ministries and churches in South Africa, Mexico and more. In her own community, she even started an after-school program called, “Project Dream Center” which provides youth a safe place to explore their talents in music, dance, and drama. She even makes time each year to direct, write & perform in a newsworthy Christmas Production, which is rarely undersold.
As is the case with most rare artists, talent like Rachel’s did not come without testimony. Recently, she was interviewed Emmy nominated television broadcast, “I’m Just Sayin’”, where she movingly shared how worshipping God in her laundry room helped her overcome 5+ years of miscarriages and infertility. “Worship is a choice,” she affirmed in the interview, “It took persistence.” From that, she has used one of her favorite scriptures, Isaiah 61:1, as motivation to sing her heart out to the “poor, brokenhearted, and oppressed” so they can experience a deeper and more responsive relationship with Christ. Her greatest desire is to see God’s glory released as His people passionately pursue Him and to deliver the love of God to this generation.
Today, Rachel likes to say her “cup runneth over”. She lives in Michigan, where she has been the Worship & Creative Arts Pastor at Bethesda Church for the past 16 years, with her husband, Norbert, who also ministers internationally with a profound passion for the Gospel, and their 4 “miracle” children, Alexander, Solomon, Isabella, and Isaiah.
