Rachel Potts


My name is Rachel Potts and I am blessed to serve with Lutheran Braille Workers as the Director of Strategic Partnerships and Ministry Relations. I am deployed to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I live there with my husband and three children. My husband and I met in Intervarsity Christian Fellowship while undergraduates at Western Michigan University, and we then attended graduate school together at Michigan State University. I was a speech-language pathologist for five years in a public school district in Tucson, Arizona. When our family moved to Ann Arbor, I became the Director of Admissions and Enrichment Programs at St. Paul Lutheran School. I served at St. Paul Ann Arbor for 11 years until God called me to the ministry at LBW in August of 2023. I am honored to share the good news of Jesus and the mission of LBW with churches and individuals as I travel throughout the eastern part of the country.

Everyone in my family are devoted (i.e., crazy) University of Michigan fans. (Yes, we went to graduate school at Michigan State but we try not to talk about that.) My family and I love music, and I play the violin for worship when I have the opportunity. I also love to garden, coach robotics, lead Girl Scouts, do graphic design, work on websites, read, and knit. In our spare time, our family loves to travel and play games.

My favorite bible verse is from Psalm 46. “Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth.” The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
