Meet our Speaker for 2019

October 25 and 26, 2019  
General Session Bible Teacher:  Rachel Vendsel  

"Finding Christ in Old Testament Appearances of God"


Rachel is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and has a private practice in Dallas, where she specializes in marriage, trauma, and grief. She is a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary and Biblical Seminary. She is active in her local church, is married to Mike, has two children, and enjoys needlework, cooking, poetry, and church history.  Rachel especially loves a good British drama.







One of the most important gifts we hope Workshop participants will take away is the sense that the Bible tells a coherent, interconnected story about God's intention to save a people for Himself through Christ. Each book and passage fits somewhere on the timeline of this story, and our understanding of this "Big Picture" will affect our ability to carefully interpret each smaller part. 

Women in the Word recommends that you listen to Paige's 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2017 talks for an overview of what "redemptive history" is, if the concept is new to you.
