Rachel was first introduced to NeighborLink in Fort Wayne, IN and was excited when a version was started in Indianapolis. She joined the Indianapolis team first as a volunteer for communications, then as a board member, next as a staff member and finally into her current role of Executive Director.
Jonathan came on board as the Director of Operations in early 2021. He's the one organizing the who, what, when, where that helps take down that to-do list of projects. In addition to working with NeighborLink Indianapolis, you'll also find him at New Circle Church as their Pastor of Community Groups.
