Rachel Conner has been a part of the Sugar Land Vineyard since 2001, and, along with her husband Stephen, has been an active participant in the life and activities of the local church. She served on the Senior Pastor’s Council for both Bert and Reagan Waggoner. Her family has been upwardly mobile so she has had opportunities to teach and lead prayer initiatives in the cities she has lived in, and the churches she has served in.
Rachel retired from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals in 2012. While at AZ, she was a member of the National Diversity Panel, and led winning teams in the therapeutic areas AstraZeneca competed in. She came out of retirement to partner with a long time friend to start a company that assisted healthcare businesses with growth, sales and technology. While working with Dimedius she completed Sustainable Faith’s School of Spiritual Direction and became a spiritual director. Unforeseen circumstances led to the closing of Dimedius after a successful three- year run where she served as President and business development lead.
Rachel is now firmly entrenched into the daily operations of the Sugar Land Vineyard, teaching, enjoying her practice as a spiritual director, working with the pastoral staff and co-directing Thrive Plus, a year- long high level discipleship course.
Rachel and Stephen love traveling, walking on the beach, and spending time with family and friends.
