Bio - Jon and Rachel Howard

Pastors Jon and Rachel Howard

Position Title:  Campus Pastor/Amesbury

Jon and Rachel Howard met their first year of college at the tender age of 18 and have been together ever since. On May 30, 2013 they will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. Their love story was completed twelve years ago when they encountered the living God and their hearts and minds were transformed forever. A passion was awakened in each of them to help bring God's people back to Him. This passion was confirmed when each independently heard God's calling to serve as a pastor. They are now in the local pastor candidacy process with the United Methodist Church and are honored to serve as Campus Pastors at the Rock as a ministry couple.

In their call to ministry, Jon and Rachel serve bi-vocationally. Jon also owns a small print management company in Portsmouth, NH and Rachel continues her practice as a corporate lawyer (under her "alter ego" Claire Rachel Howard) with a large law firm in Manchester, NH.

Jon and Rachel live in Plaistow with their 4 wonderful children, Julia, Lily, Bella and Elijah, and are members of the Rock.
