Welcome Rachel

Rachel Vankirk Mathews – Associate Pastor of Youth, Young Adults and Social Justice

Rachel joins us this fall and is excited and grateful for the opportunity to lead and love the youth and young adults of Maxwell Street and to follow the ever-beckoning voice of the Holy Spirit forward with the whole congregation and its community in God’s work towards a more just and loving world.

Joining Rachel are interns David Ehlert, a senior at UK and Madison Cissell, a sophomore at UK.


The youth collect donations for parking for UK Volleyball and Women’s Basketball games as an ongoing fundraiser for youth mission trips. We thank all who have donated or volunteered so far! We need more volunteers for the upcoming volleyball games, and ask that each youth who plans to participate in a mission trip, volunteer for two fundraisers. For more information on how to volunteer, email Rachel (
