The Radiant Podcast #33: Rachel Joy

Rachel Joy is the founder of the Sparrow Conference! She is a mom of four, a pastor’s wife, and the Founder and Director of Sparrow Conference – a catalytic gathering connecting young women to Jesus, the Bible, one another and the local church. She has lead and taught Bible studies for over fifteen years because it’s Rachel’s passion to see young women come to the powerful, saving grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.  It is her joy to point to Jesus because in Him alone do we find truth, freedom, identity, and purpose.

Rachel describes her life as busy, loud, crazy and she absolutely loves it! You will often find her drinking far too much coffee, having a dance party with her little ones, writing for fun and having a good, long dinner with folks from church or the neighborhood. Rachel calls The Village Church in Highland Village, Texas home.

Our favorite takeaways from Rachel:

  • The importance of being faithful with a passion. Success is measured by faithfulness, not by numbers.
  • We long to know our identity and purpose, but without a firm foundation, we get tossed around by fear and doubt.
  • Our conversation around racial reconciliation. We cannot steer away from the hard conversations; if we don’t talk about it, it leaves a lot of hurt. Just because we don’t experience something, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. There is power in meeting with people that don’t look like us and learning from one another.
