As RCC continues to grow, our staff has the opportunity to grow too! And we are excited to announce that Ashley Powell is our Women’s Ministry Director! Early this summer, as we started to prepare for our new ministry year, which starts October 1st, we started prayerfully exploring what it would look like for the RCC Women’s Ministry to take it’s next step. We believe that the next step is to hire a Women’s Ministry Director. After talking with several great options, we believe that the Lord has led us to Ashley Powell! Please take a moment to get to know Ashley, encourage her, and pray for her as she takes on this strategic role.
Who is Ashley Powell?
Ashley loves connecting women to the Gospel and one another, and is excited to participate in what God is doing at Redemption City in a more strategic way! She is married to Brandon, and they have two kids, Madison (7) and Blake (5). Ashley attended Murray State University, where she received her bachelor’s degree in English Education, and Trevecca Nazarene University, where she received her master’s degree in Educational Leadership. She taught high school at Brentwood for five years. Since starting a family, Ashley has worked part-time in a number of ministry roles including a locally-based nonprofit, Justice and Mercy International. She enjoys all things outdoors, as well as kickboxing, reading, and coffee, especially if any of those involve the company of family and friends!
What will this role look like?
The Women’s Ministry Director role is a part time role that will include being at the weekly staff meeting, connecting with women throughout the week, and leading the women’s ministry team to provide groups and events that advance the mission of RCC.

How can you best help Ashley and RCC with this transition?
First of all, we’d like to invite you to pray. We believe that the Enemy wants to keep us from taking a kingdom advancing step like this. Please pray with us! Also, please do your best to make her feel welcomed. We want to be a church that feels like home for everyone, so let’s do our best to make that true for her.
