Rachel Hunka affiliated as a CCO Associate staff member in 2013. She reaches out to students at Malone University in her hometown of Canton, Ohio, through her role as Director of Communications & Mission Development.
Before working in ministry, Rachel was a Cleveland Cavalier Girl. “I was a member of the dance team and all that comes with it, the good and the bad,” Rachel says. “During my time there is when I realized how truly empty my life was. That’s what led me back to Christ.
“My most dramatic stages of personal development—both positively and negatively—occurred in my late teens and early twenties. In my experience, the years between 18 and 25 are when young adults are trying to discover who they are meant to be in the world. The time to develop tomorrow’s leaders is today, and with the CCO I plan to use my personal experiences to help young adults become the people God made them to be.”
