What is your theological background?
I am an Ordained Minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and a sixth generation Disciple. I have served as Senior Pastor of two congregations, as well as serving on the staff of other congregations in various capacities. I majored in Religious Studies at Yale University and received my Masters of Divinity at Memphis Theological Seminary.
How long have you been performing weddings?
I performed my first wedding ceremony in June, 1994 and have been officiating weddings ever since. I've been blessed to perform weddings in Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida, Virginia, and once on a Cruise Ship.
What do you like BEST about weddings?
There are so many things I love about performing weddings, but there are two things that stand out the most. The first is standing with the Groom watching the Bride come in. Both seem to glow. The other is watching the couple as they share their vows with each other. It's the moment that says it all.
What couples are saying about Rev Rachel...
We would highly recommend
The Squad, & Rev. Rachel
She made our wedding day so much more special.
She is very personable and professional."
"We were married at Graceland, and Rev Rachel was professional, graceful, and very knowledgeable.
She guided us through the most important day of our lives."
"Easy, and Sweet. The ceremony that Rev Rachel performed was beautiful. We chose a small elopement, and she made everything flawless. Thanks again"
"My now wife and I were really in a bind when our minister backed out on our wedding two weeks before the ceremony.
We had no clue what to do and called our wedding DJ and they recommended us to the God Squad. We had a new officiant booked in less than 24 hours which I can't express how grateful we were at the time to have.
It took a lot of stress off us in those last crucial moments of planning. We had Rev Rachel and she was fantastic!
Really loved meeting her and were so thankful to have her with us on our wedding day. Highly recommend!!!"
"We were excited to get Pastor Rachel as our officiant and I’d recommend her to anyone.
She was on time (even with a complicated parking/logistical situation) and gave a beautiful service that had everyone in tears. The booking process was so simple and happened all online and by phone. Thank you, God Squad!!"
