Darel and Rachel Handley

Development PASTOR

Darel was raised in the Carolina’s until his family moved to Washington State in the middle of his 7th grade year. It was in that transition that someone shared Jesus with Darel, and he has never been the same. It is his passion to share the hope of Jesus with the world.

When Darel & Rachel met at Northwest University, sparks flew. Truth be told, those sparks are still flying 14 years later!  They have a beautiful, caring, and energetic daughter named Claire, and a handsome, tender-hearted son named Grant.

Darel graduated from Northwest University with a Communications Degree and completed his Masters Degree at Southeastern University in Ministerial Leadership. Rachel graduated Northwest University with a degree in Education and completed her Masters in Education from George Fox University. Together Darel and Rachel love serving Jesus in the local church and have had the privilege of Pastoring in some great communities. They recently moved to Kalispell to be a part of Canvas Church and are excited to launch the Canvas School on Ministry.

In their down time Darel & Rachel enjoy spending time with Family and Friends, laughing, traveling, and watching the Portland Trailblazers.
