Meet Our Board of Directors
Rachel Bates is passionate about helping women and girls know they are deeply loved and valued by God. She served as a women's ministry event coordinator at her former church, became a MOPS discussion leader and coordinator at her current church and has volunteered in children's ministry for over 15 years. Rachel has been part of Beauties since 2013, when she started a group for her daughter, who was 6 at the time and led that group for 8 years, watching those girls grow up and graduate from the ministry as teens! With a background teaching upper elementary, a masters in reading, and a few years of homeschool under her belt, she didn't shy away from partnering with her co-lead to develop years of Beauties curriculum starting in 2016 along with the first Beauties leader training in 2017. Although writing curriculum continues to be fulfilling, watching women and girls build confidence in their identity in Christ is what really fuels her heart and brings her so much joy! She is thrilled to be a steward of this ministry (that she hopes outlives her), and a member of such a committed Board.
Jenny Gronberg is passionate about helping kids develop a relationship with Jesus and also loves to fuel her relationship with Christ by serving others. She has served in children's ministries for 12 years and is currently leading women's Bible studies while also serving as a table leader for MOPS in Erie, CO. Jenny enjoyed leading a Beauties group for her older daughter and now helps support the leaders of her younger daughter's group. Her 2 daughters loved learning about who they are because of God's love for them. Jenny has been married for 17 years to Nathan, and they have 4 kids. She is honored to serve on the board alongside other women who share the same passion for God and for Beauties!
