Rebecca Weaver is a locally grown gal who loves Jesus, coffee, & all things strawberry. She studied Practical Theology & Human Services at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida. She & her husband Michael have been married for 13 years & share the love of 3 sons. Rebecca has been in love with Jesus since the tender age of 4 years old & knew Him early on as Savior, but did not surrender to Christ & His Lordship until she was a teenager. Rebecca prayed for God to break her heart for what breaks His & ended with the words 'send me'. Shortly after God revealed His plan for her to be used in teaching the next generation. She is passionate in her pursuit of loving others with the truth of God's Word & seeing the next generation equipped for service in advancing the Kingdom of God. She intentionally lives: Love God. Love Others. Rebecca is our youth ministry leader for grades 6th through 12th.
