She has worked in the mission field with an orphanage in Romania and is exploring various mission opportunities. Frankie graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Management from St. John Fisher College. He is part of worship team at the church where he plays the guitar, piano and helps lead worship.
Raquel is the Worship Leader here at Horizon Church. She has always had a heart for worship desiring to please God in obedience to her calling. At a young age Raquel developed her skills through the Amadeus Choir and under the guidance of a singing instructor. Later as Raquel's relationship developed with God she began to understand the true sense of worship is not so much about talent but about the condition of heart. Through that understanding her worship has developed where God has called her to be a Prophetic Worshiper.
Raquel also has a heart for missions where she has gone and worked with an orphanage in Romania and is exploring future opportunities to serve the Lord in the mission field.
