LONG BIO

Rita Mayell – Author, Speaker, Leadership Coach

Rita Mayell is an author and speaker with a burning message: God loves you and doesn’t want you to settle for mediocre. Her passion is to be a catalyst and igniter of the dreams and calling God has placed within the hearts of each of us as part of His design for our lives.

Among friends she is known as a storyteller, wrapping God’s timeless truths in stories that will bring hope and encouragement to others that God is for them. In a crowd, you’ll find her sharing stories of her own life with humor, wisdom, and honesty. She calls them modern day parables, and each story represents a “marker” when God stepped into her life in an unexpected and personal way and revealed His love and faithfulness in pursuit of her own dreams.

Rita knows how difficult it is to wait, that it’s not always as simple as one-two-three, and that throwing in the towel is always a temptation. She’s been there. But she also knows that God’s dreams are so much bigger than our dreams, that His vision is always accompanied by everything we need for success, and that the process is part of the plan uniquely tailored for us by a loving heavenly Father. This year she’s excited to announce the launch of her first book, 5’2” Giant, Builder of Dreams, the true story of one ordinary man who changed the world.  It’s the fulfillment of a dream God placed in her heart when she was only 17.

It’s immediately apparent that Rita is an encourager, motivator, and messenger of grace. She’s not big on religious speak, although she certainly has the formal biblical training to go toe-to-toe with the best scholars. She’s down to earth, authentic, and transparent, and her love for people is evident both on and off the platform. She has the unique ability to speak to a group of people and make each person feel like they are having an intimate, one-on-one conversation with a friend, encourager, life coach, cheerleader, and fellow traveler on the journey. A clear and vivid communicator, she unpacks the Word of God in a practical and deeply thought-provoking style, weaving personal stories with biblical truth in a powerful delivery that will have you laughing and crying at the same time. Equally baring her failures and struggles as well as her victories, people teasingly say that she is at all times, “just Rita.”

A graduate of Biola University with a degree in Communications and a minor in Bible, Rita draws from a wide range of professional experiences as a Certified Life and Leadership Coach, transition consultant, pastoral counselor, and her current role as Human Resources Strategist with Samaritan’s Purse.

For Rita, her work and ministry are the same. Her greatest joy is to watch God work through her to stir up the gifts inside of others and rekindle the dreams that God has placed in your heart. Hers is an important message of restoration and hope, that will inspire you with a renewed sense of purpose and understanding that God is for you, you matter, and you can accomplish all that God has for you.
