Rev. Rachel Ringlaben
Pastora Rachel is the mission developer for Mesa Abierta in Kenner, Louisiana. Known as 'la pastora de la calle' [the pastor of the streets], you're most likely to find Rachel sitting with day laborers in the Home Depot parking lot, facilitating ESL classes or accompanying a friend for an immigration hearing. Rachel is passionate about being the church through accompaniment, the slow, meaningful work of walking with God's people in daily life.
