Humans of UCC // Meet Rachel Yoshimura!


We are bringing back the “Humans of UCC” segment of this blog! Everyone, meet Rachel Yoshimura. She is a beautiful, radiant member of our church family as well as Campus Ministry’s Graduate Apprentice. 

1. What do you enjoy most about being the CM graduate apprentice?
I’m surrounded by gifted and passionate people on our CM team. I have the privilege of helping make our Team Leaders’ and Campus Ministers’ visions come to fruition.

2. What is one fun fact about you?
I learned to surf before I could swim.

3. What is one particular area of your life where you see God moving right now?
I see God moving in my understanding of His grace. God’s grace became a watered-down term to me, but lately God has been making me think deeply about His grace. His grace is so confusing to me – How does God forgive the weight of all our sin and want to partner with us in His ministry? Why does he do these things? I’ve been left in beautiful and confusing awe at these questions. Our God is truly unfathomable.

4. Is there anything our church family can be praying over you?
Please pray that God would teach me more about serving humbly and that He would continue to shape me according to His calling on my life.
