Meet the team

Across everything we do, we always seek to have a wide range of contributors, which includes the Parenting for Faith team.

Parenting for Faith is part of The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF). The BRF staff team works - often behind the scenes - to make sure that Parenting for Faith is as effective as it can be.

Rachel Turner

Rachel is the Parenting for Faith Pioneer at BRF. God gave her the vision for Parenting for Faith in 2005 in response to a need in her local church, and it has grown from there. 

She has worked in a variety of churches as a family life pastor, children's pastor and youth pastor since 2004. She consults, speaks at conferences and runs training days for parents and church leaders around the UK and Europe.

Rachel moved to the UK from Southern California in 2002 and now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and son. She once taught herself Irish Gaelic for three years for fun and is fascinated with obscure history. Her love language is new and beautiful stationery.

Anna is the National Parenting for Faith Coordinator and joined the team in March 2018.

Before this, she was a Children's and Families' Minister in St Albans for six years, where she ran Parenting for Faith courses. Her messiest ministry moment was being turned into a snowman with multiple cans of shaving foam. 

She now lives in Milton Keynes with her composer husband Matt and their two small children. She cheats at life by living next door to her parents who provide an emergency storecupboard for her regular baking emergencies and extra entertainment for tired toddlers.
