Running on Mission While Raising a Family | Ep. 45 | Rachel Joy

Jan 7, 2019

Rachel Joy is the Founder and Director of the Sparrow Conference, a catalytic gathering in Dallas, Texas connecting women to God and His heart for racial reconciliation.

In this episode, Rachel and I discuss how truth brings freedom, freedom brings identity and identity brings purpose in your life. She shares the story of how God brought her on this journey in her own life and how it led her to start this ministry while raising her family of four children with her husband in Dallas, Texas. 

Sparrow exists to catalyze the next generation of reconcilers through the annual conference, Sparrow Resources, Sparrow Lead, & will soon pursue justice and mercy with the launch of The Sparrow Center. Rachel has lead and taught Bible Studies for almost 20 years. She is married to Trevor, a pastor at The Village Church, and they live in Highland Village, Texas with their four children. Her days are spent pursuing more of Jesus with her family and church community. She can be found with a large cup of coffee–juggling the joy of raising four children, church life, Sparrow life–all while trying trying to channel her inner Joanna Gaines (who doesn’t) and always looking for a reason to dance in the kitchen!
