Rachel Infinger, Events Ministry Assistant
I came to Journey way back in the days of Pleasant Grove in 2008. I am married to Steven, who I met while working at the same school. I taught special education, and Steven helped teachers incorporate technology into their teaching. On Meet the Teacher night, I was a nervous, excited, first-year teacher…so I baked cookies for my students, got dressed up, and none of them showed up. But Steven popped in to make sure all my technology was up and running, and he ended up chatting with me as he ate the cookies I had baked. I remember driving home that night telling my mom about it, and she said, “I think he’ll be a good friend to you.” We were both baptized at Journey in 2011. We have two kids: Noah Jerome (3) and Evangeline Frances (1). My hobbies include exercising, running, reading, watching Chicago Cubs baseball, baking, and camping. I don’t get much free time these days, though, so my current hobbies are sweeping, loading the dishwasher, and playing firefighter. I also find myself frequently wiping tiny fingerprints off of a variety of surfaces. My go-to Bible verse these days is Philippians 4:13. I’m constantly telling myself and others “I can do all things! Christ strengthens me!” It’s pretty motivating when you feel like your body is done but you can’t give up yet.
