God called Rachel Billingsley to music at the age of 14. The daughter of a piano virtuoso, she was surrounded by music from a very young age. And yet it was intimidating to stand up and sing in public on her own! As a vocalist, she spent years touring with musical groups and serving on staff for two churches. Rachel visited Europe and Australia on musical mission tours and also toured for four years with Maplestreet, a band originating in Fayetteville. She has released two solo records as well as two Maplestreet albums. She and her husband Greg work together to prepare for and lead worship at CCC. Rachel loves using music to glorify God and lead others in worship. The Billingsleys are raising three young daughters who are surrounded by music in their home, just as Rachel was as a child.
Erin was raised all over the South and is a graduate of the University of Alabama. She worked with Hunter as an RUF intern at Emory University for three and a half years before moving to Philadelphia, where she recently completed a Certificate Program in Christian Counseling at CCEF. She spent four years as a nanny and loves kids and puppies. Her competitive spirit shows up often, and she enjoys playing volleyball or any other game. Erin loves to travel and explore new cultures, but she’s just as happy to be at home in the land of Southern food, hospitality and college football. One aspect of her ministry at CCC that excites her is the opportunity to explain the Gospel to children in a simple and relatable way.
