About Rachel Dotzler
My name is Rachel Dotzler. I am a wife, a Student Pastor, and I am a peacemaker…but I wasn’t always. Before I ventured onto an Israel/Palestine trip I thought I knew what peacemaking was. We often think peace is rainbows, peace signs, and exists only in the 70’s. Oh, how I was wrong. Going to Israel/Palestine not only grew my relationship with God but opened my eyes to how Jesus lived here on earth as a peacemaker. I gained an understanding that we must seek to understand instead of being understood and I saw that the people that seem to be so far away from God end up being closer to him than I ever was. My peacemaking journey starts and ends with Shalom and I will continue to pursue the people and the brokenness around me to help restore God’s shalom to the world.
