Meet the Youth Director

Hi, Friend! My name is Rachel Devereaux, and I have the absolute honor of serving Cross Winds UMC as our Associate Pastor to Students and their Families. I have been working with young people for over 20 years. I am married to Jeff and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Madison (11) and Ashley (9).

It is my hope that every youth who is a part of our ministry at Cross Winds will feel the love of the Lord, and fully know that they are beloved sons and daughters of Christ who are made in the image of God!

I look forward to being the hands and feet with you on your student's journey!

Hearts and warm hugs!
