Rachel Dew (she/her/hers) cares deeply for those on the margins and has always valued building bridges of learning, understanding, and friendship between diverse groups of people. She credits her children with giving her the courage and motivation to develop her voice as an everyday advocate for inclusivity, equity, and justice in her community.
Her journey of acceptance with her own child, and the subsequent hurt she experienced in the church, has given her a heart for coming alongside Christian parents of LGBTQIA+ children to provide a safe space of love and support. She holds a B.A. in Sociology from Ohio University and a certificate in Leadership and Theology.
Rachel enjoys listening to music, hosting parties, and hiking with her family in the captivating beauty of Hocking Hills. She lives in Westerville, Ohio, with her husband, their four bright and lively children, and gentle giant puppy, Hugo.
