My name Is Rafael Jesus Bellinni (and yes Jesus really is my middle name). I have the privilege and honor of working as part of the High School faculty at WHCS. My wife Heather and I moved from the far off land of Tampa to the Spring Hill area in 2015 and have created deep-seated roots here since then. We have 3 boys Gabriel, Micah and Ezra and they are an incredible bunch of little people.
My background is in ministry having served as a youth pastor for many years at various churches. I have always been drawn to the idea of helping to shape young minds and I can't think of a better way to do that than teaching. I am currently the pastor of the Send Church, a church plant that started at the beginning of 2018 here in Spring Hill. I also have a wide variety of experience and qualifications having received my B.S. in Exercise Science from Florida State University (Go Noles!) and my M.A. in Theological studies from Asbury Seminary.
As a teacher my goal has always been to allow for students to grow. I desire this not only in the subjects which I teach, but also in their faith, their leadership ability, and their character.
