Deel Family Woodland Christian Church Members Lexington Kentucky

The Deel Family

Josh, Rachael and their little one Magdalena, just recently joined Woodland Christian Church.  They had been attending for a few months with some good friends who are members.

Rachael is from Conneautville, Pennsylvania.  She is at the University of Kentucky working on her PhD in higher education.  She received a BA from Clarion University in Pennsylvania and her Masters Degree from the University of Texas.   Being a mom has added a wonderful dimension to her life. She also likes being with horses and is the 5th generation horse person in her family.     Josh grew up in Grundy, Virginia.  He graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in accounting and is currently an accountant with Minova USA.   He  likes cooking and really enjoys being a dad for Magdalena.   They were married in 2012 and live in Georgetown.

Woodland is Josh’s first experience with being a part of a church.  Rachael grew up attending a church in the Church of Christ denomination.  They like the sense of community and service orientation of our congregation.   When a group of ten from Woodland went to participate in a worship service at the Luther Luckett Correction Facility, Josh and Rachael were among the ten.  It was a moving experience for them.   When asked about their decision to join Woodland, Rachael said, “We never felt such a warm and welcoming feeling in any church before”  and Josh added, “It felt like home.”
