Three weeks ago we kicked off the year with our annual Charlotte Fellows welcoming party. We are so excited and expectant about what the Lord is going to do in and through everyone involved with the program this year. Check out our new crop of Fellows below!

Laura Holmes
James Madison University
Internship: DCG Construction

I have joined the Charlotte Fellows so that I can continue growing in my faith as I navigate many of the life decisions that come after graduating college. I also want to gain wisdom on how to balance my work, faith and personal life. I am excited to serve the Fellows community as well as the city of Charlotte and see how the Lord uses this next year to share His love with others.

Martin Purcell
Auburn University
Internship: Joe Gibbs Racing

I look forward to growing into the man God has me to be and finding my true identity in Him. Can't wait to give an undistracted year to my Lord and Savior and be used by Him and go where He sends me. I love action sports, Auburn Football, and French donuts.

Brianna Smith
Clemson University
Internship: Boosterthon Fun Run

I am spending this year as a Charlotte Fellow because I want to grow in my walk with the Lord and to see what it looks like to truly live every aspect of life on mission. I am most excited about the opportunity to have a community of believers striving for the same thing and to be able to watch each of us be molded into who God is making us to be through this process.

Theo Shepard
Catawba College
Internship: Church Sports Outreach

I (finally) decided to join the Charlotte Fellow program because I wanted to build my resumé and try to receive some assurance that the Lord was calling me to the corporate world and working in Public Relations or marketing. Most importantly, I'm stoked to strengthen my walk with God and hear from Him in this major transition from college to the real world, and the inevitable struggles of which He will help me. 

Beth Batchelor
East Carolina University
Internship: Boosterthon Fun Run

I am a Charlotte Fellow this year because I am seeking Godly wisdom and guidance on my next steps in life. I want to be surrounded by a community that is challenging me in my spiritual walk as well as a community that is preparing me for the workforce. 

Eric Maust
Grove City College
Internship: Brookstone Schools

I chose to be a Charlotte Fellow to continue learning to trust God’s grace as I grapple with the sometimes-daunting but wonderful unpredictability of life, including community and career. I look forward to starting afresh in a new place, more fall and less winter than Pittsburgh, and jumping off the deep end (with people to tell me where the rocks are).

Lilla Flora
Ole Miss
Internship: Soccer Shots

I chose to do the Charlotte Fellows Program to spend a year growing in God's word and to gain a better understanding of the gospel, and how we as Christians are to live our life in the working environment and everyday life for Him. 

Pray for the Fellows

Friends, please join us in praying for our Fellows this year, that they might grow in their understanding of the gospel and love for God.
