We're so excited about our new class of Charlotte Fellows. Hailing from four different states and five different colleges, these Fellows come from a variety of different backgrounds. We're so excited to see what the Lord is going to do in and through them this year.
Danae Cowan joins us from the great state of Oregon. She graduated from college in 2014 and has spent the past two years working with junior high and high school students. Wanting more clarity of where Jesus is calling her, she decided to join the Charlotte Fellows program. She is so grateful for a year set apart to learn more of what it looks like to follow Jesus in the context of such a supportive community.
Casey was born and raised in Woodstock, Virginia. She graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Modern Foreign Languages and minors in Business Italian and Modern European Studies. While at JMU, Casey served as a volunteer Young Life leader at a local middle school. During her time as a leader, she developed a strong passion for pouring into the lives of urban kids. Casey is excited for the opportunity to learn how to live a seamless life of faith, grow into her gifts, and navigate the tension of living for Jesus in a broken world, all while immersed in a community with their eyes and hearts fixed on Jesus.

Jack is from Memphis and graduated from the University of Tennessee. He loves getting to meet people and building lasting relationships with the intent to show others the love and acceptance of Christ.

He is excited to have the opportunity to learn how to integrate his faith into every aspect of life while growing in community with other like-minded people.
