Bio

Kat's call to ministry began when the Lord asked her, "Do you want to see people come alive?" Since then, she has sought to live into that call to see people and communities come alive in Christ. Kat started serving as pastor at Highrock Brookline in April 2021 and has previously served with InterVarsity as a campus minister and at Highrock Quincy as worship pastor. She is ordained with the ECC. As a Filipino-immigant-American having also grown up in the Middle East, she is a child of many cultural “intersections” and passionate about the intersection of the

Church and racial justice, with the local church embodying mutuality and solidarity as part of the global Church. She currently lives in the Greater Boston area (Quincy) with her husband Ben, their very energetic toddler son AJ, and their German shepherd dog, Bonnie. She is fond of karaoke (singing), productivity life hacks, weighted blankets, good books, and copious amounts of sugar in her coffee.

Rebekah has been a follower of Jesus for most of her life, and her understanding of Him continues to grow as she learns from the experiences of others. She's been a member of Highrock Brookline since her youngest son was a toddler, and now her oldest is entering high school! Over the years she's been a Kidsrock storyteller, an Ohana leader, and most recently one of the leaders of the Racial Justice Ministry. Over her years at Highrock Brookline, our understanding of the needs of our country and our local community has greatly increased, and she is excited to serve with the next generation of HRB to meet those needs in visible, tangible, life-changing ways.
