Joe + Rachel Stauffer
Joe is originally from New York, and joined Coastal Kids with his wife, Rachel, in 2016. Joe loves Rachel, being a dad to John Paul, Anthony and Caleb, and using his construction skills on all kinds of home improvement projects. Still, no construction project gives Joe as much joy as helping kids build the foundation of their relationship with Jesus!
Rachel is a seventh-generation Floridian, growing up in Coconut Creek, FL. She has been married to her best friend, Joe, since 2008. Rachel and Joe have 3 awesome kids: John Paul, Anthony and Caleb. Rachel loves all things comic book, movie, and nerd-related, but her favorite thing is helping boys and girls learn just how much Jesus loves them!
Coastal Community Church is a group of people from all walks of life who are being transformed by Jesus Christ. We are passionate about sharing the love of Christ by caring for, encouraging one another and positively impacting our community.
