Founded in 2018 by Rachel Libby and Lisa DaSilva, Arise Ministries Collective was birthed from a deep desire to see woman equipped in the Word so that they are compelled to live in radical ways for Christ’s glory.
We believe that when women have an authentic and growing relationship with Jesus Christ, truly know God’s Word, and are dependent on the Holy Spirit, they become powerful and influential vessels for the Kingdom.

I’m a health nut. Mom. Peacekeeper. Passionate to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. Lover of travel and new places. I thrive helping others live their best life and truly care for their heart, soul and body the way God intended.
Knowing that Jesus is King in both the darkest of places and my simple everyday life is what I strive for daily.

Eryn Kesler- Member at Large
My husband Matt & I head up a family of 5 wonderful kids. Our family is uniquely made through biological kids, as well as international and foster-adoption. I’m easy-going, love to create, travel, read a good book, and am probably over caffeinated because I live on coffee.
I am passionate about discovering and living in my God given purpose & calling through the Word, and encouraging others to do the same.
Sarah Bulkley- Secretary
I’m a wife, dog mom, pediatric dental assistant. I love spending my free time meditating on scripture, listening to old sermons, practicing yoga, and antique shopping.
I fell in love with Jesus at a young age, but my passion for women’s ministries and Bible Study really began when I joined my first Bible Study group in 2010. I love encouraging women to know and love the Bible.
Lisa Da Silva – President
Lisa is a wife, mom of two teenagers, and advocate for women to love God with their heart, soul and mind as they engage in responsible study of His Word. She writes, speaks, and teaches the Bible to anyone who will read or listen.
Lisa is a teacher by trade and passion, recovering striver, and lover of simplicity. She enjoys thrift store shopping and often has to convince people she’s an introvert. Just a loud one.
Loving Jesus and making Him known really is her everything.
