Get to know the team here at The Send Church
Rafael is the lead pastor at The Send Church. He has a passion and a zeal for equipping others to do God’s work. After going to Florida State University (Go NOLES!) and receiving a BA in Exercise Science he felt God calling him into full-time ministry. He earned a Masters in Theological studies from Asbury Seminary and is always ready to share and learn from others. He has been married to the beautiful Mrs. Heather Bellinni since the spring of 2010 and they have three adorable sons, Gabriel, Micah and Ezra. In his spare time Rafael can be found with his nose in a book, sipping on some coffee, or relaxing with his family.
Heather Bellinni serves as the Worship Leader at The Send . Heather was a performer for most of her life and felt a call to use her gift in worship ministry. As her husband's call was refined, so was hers. Heather and Raf have been married since 2010 and enjoy spending time together exploring hidden historic areas and seeking out great little coffee shops. Being able to share her passion for worship and music with a church that she can call family, is Heather's favorite part of her job.
