It all started when she was just 12 years old. Her Grandmother Jean had been a Sunday School teacher for as long as Rachel could remember. Rachel was spending the weekend with her Grandma when Grandma suddenly remembered that it was her Sunday to teach! She took one look at Rachel and said, I KNOW! You will teach! You’ll be great! Ok now what do you need me to do? That weekend, Rachel taught her first ever class of 4 and 5 year old’s, who sat enraptured as she told the story of Adam and Eve! That one Sunday directed Rachel down a long path of leading children to Jesus and she’s never looked back!
Hello! My name is Rachel Cole, but I am commonly referred to as Miss Rachel or Anya’s mommy. I am the Director of Children’s Ministries here at the Lighthouse Church of All Nations along with my husband, Maurice Cole. Not only was I blessed with the greatest husband on the planet, but God has also seen fit to bless me with two amazing daughters. I am #2 in the lineup of children fortunate enough to be born to Pastor Dan & First Lady Linda Willis, and have a host of siblings, nieces, nephews, and extended family. There are just enough of us to make any restaurant we gather at extremely nervous.
I have been a member of the Lighthouse all my life and have served extensively as a volunteer in Children’s Ministry before becoming the Director. It has been my privilege to serve the Lord as the Director of Children’s Ministries for nearly 15 years. The Kidz Ministry team of the Lighthouse is some of the finest men and women God ever put together. We have a great group of kids and a bunch of teachers and helpers who are committed to sharing God’s love with them. It is so rewarding to serve alongside others vested in building future Kingdom leaders.
If you’re new to the Lighthouse and I haven’t had a chance to meet you yet, please stop me in passing so we can introduce ourselves. If you ever have any questions for me, please feel free to contact me any time. If you would like to know more about our Children’s Ministry or volunteer with us, please contact me at 708.385.6020 x 109 or email@example.com.
