Rachel Howarton is the wife of Alex Howarton, the Pastor of Music / Youth Ministries at Church Alive. She works as one, with her husband to minister to the youth of Church Alive, lead the worship services on weekends, and head up the music ministry area for special events and Life Crusades.
Rachel Howarton was born in Abilene, and grew up in Midlothian, TX. She grew up singing and playing competitive soccer, with dreams of becoming a professional athlete. After getting offers from colleges for soccer, she turned them down to focus on the calling the Lord had for her in music ministry.
While attending community college, Rachel interned at a local church-plant, serving directly under the worship pastor. She sang on the worship team for their main campus and at their church plant. There, she also learned how to manage a music ministry and lead people into worship.
As that internship was coming to a close, she met her husband Alex. While dating they served together at the church he was attending, assisting with the youth and worship ministries. They married in 2012 in Midlothian, TX and a year later was called to attend and serve at Church Alive.
Having spent many years working with youth, Rachel, like her husband Alex, has a desire to see the younger generations become like the first disciples’ of Jesus, loving others, and reaching the world in His name. Rachel has a passion for helping people come into the presence of God through worship. She believes that through the gifts of music and song people can have an intimate fellowship with God. It is her hope and passion to teach others to have a personal lifestyle of worship.
