Rachel Keller
International Class 2009–2012

 “The Global Mission Fellows - International program led me to see the church in a new way through people who wanted to be change in their community.  As I worked alongside and with them, I heard God calling me to seminary to search a further call to pastoral ministry in the local church. I see the church as a place where people are welcomed, trained, filled, and then sent out to use their gifts in the community and be church there, too. This vision and call would not have been so clear to me without my time in South Africa and Seattle as a young adult missionary. Three years later, I have graduated from seminary and just started my first appointment as pastor of a small church in South Central Pennsylvania.”
