Rachelle Gelder

I am blessed to be a wife to an amazing husband, mom to three tremendous girls, and coordinator for Easter Ottawa YoungLives.  God placed me on a crazy journey many years ago, even before I myself became a teen mom.  Soon after marrying my high school sweetheart, I realized that I had an amazing story to share, but I waited for God to show me where and how. Every piece of my journey pointed to my love of building relationship, serving others and showing them the redeeming love Christ extends to us all.  I am overwhelmed that God has been faithful in prompting my heart for YoungLives since I was 16, and I am proud to serve in this capacity.

My goal with EOYoungLives is to reach each and every teen mom
with abundant love.  Love that will give each mom and child a fighting chance at living life to the fullest. Love that will open doors for sharing the story of Jesus and salvation with each of them!
