Pastor Rakel Evenson
I love serving as Pastor at New Life and find deep joy in all the ways we are a blessing as the church to each other, our community and our world. I joined the staff in 2008; my husband Ben and I have two children and when we’re not doing church activities, we like music, parks, and Legos.
Leader of Ministry Communication and Coordination
I have been a member of New Life since 1996 and was excited to join the staff in 2017. I am eager to share my talents to help communicate the many ministries and events at New Life with the congregation and our community. My husband, Jeff, and I are blessed to have 3 children that are growing up in the church.
Director of Music
It is with such joy that I will be serving New Life Church since music is my life. I have a master’s degree in music education from the Music Academy, Krakow, Poland. In a span of 30 years, I have taught music in Poland, United Kingdom, and United States. For eight years, I have worked in orchestras for Polish Radio and TV. I also teach private piano lessons. In 2006, God opened the doors for me, and I’ve been sharing my gift of liturgical music ever since. My husband Jack and I have one son, Alex, who is a blessing to us. I thank God for this gift of music He has given me, and I look forward to meeting you.
