Rachel Turner has been a full-time children's worker in churches around the UK and the National Children's Work Coordinator at New Wine. She continues to consult, speak at conferences and run training days for parents, children and youth workers around the UK and Europe. Her work has brought her into contact with thousands of children and families through mainstream New Wine summer events, parish weekends, schools, and daily encounters in her own church. She is currently the Children's and Youth Pastor at Harrogate New Life Church. Rachel's first book Parenting Children for a Life of Faith was released in 2010.
Rachel is passionate about children rooting themselves in God, experiencing and pursuing relationship with Him daily, growing in the Word, and living and ministering in the power of the Spirit. She adores children's leaders, and longs to encourage, support, inspire, train, and resource them to do what God has called them to do where they are. She feels it is essential to connect them to each other for mentoring, strengthening, joy, and support. Rachel also loves investing in and equipping parents and carers in their role as the primary spiritual influencers in their children's lives. She wants to help churches partner with parents to empower faith at home, and as a family in church.
