Children’s Director

Rachel Nellis is currently a student at Northpoint Bible College in Grand Rapids, MI. She will be graduating in 2018 with a B.A. in ministerial leadership. She’s served in children’s ministry as a volunteer at Grand Rapids First Church for eight years. For most of the eight years she has loved serving as the kindergarten teacher. Seeing the kids grow in their understanding of God and develop their own, personal faith was the highlight of her time serving there. In March of 2016, she became the Children’s Director at The Gateway Church. She loves teaching the first through fifth grade kids about God and seeing them connect with Him.

Rachel loves adventure! Exploring with her friends or trying something new is one of her favorite things to do. She also enjoys biking, spending time at the beach, and a variety of sports. During the school year most of her time is devoted to academics, but she always manages to enjoy a good game of volleyball.
