|She grew up in a Christian home with loving parents, but her faith became her own in college. Her hunger for the Word of God flourished and she discovered the power of Christian community and discipleship relationships as catalysts for spiritual growth. A native Texan, she loves the beach and the mountains, and enjoys hiking, camping, and hammocking. She is a voracious podcast listener and book reader. She is excited to join staff and is thrilled to be used by God to strengthen His kingdom! Callie is a member of Watermark Community Church in Dallas.
||Raised in a gospel-centered home in Mesquite, TX, his father pastored a church. After being discipled into a relationship with Christ, Derek accepted a call to ministry and was licensed and ordained to carry the weight of preaching the gospel of Christ. He is currently completing his BA in Business at the University of North Texas while interning in Spiritual Formations at The Village Church in Dallas. Derek is married and a father to his beautiful daughter Aubree. He's a great addition to the team! Derek is a member of The Village Church Dallas Northway.
||Though raised in the church, her life didn’t always reflect Gospel transformation. At a low point in her early twenties, two women approached her on the beach to remind her of God’s love for her. His pursuit of her never felt more real, and she began to fall in love with Him, the One who heals and restores. Shortly after that, she joined D-Group -- and even five years later, she still counts it among her best decisions. Her desire is to live out the words of John the Baptist: “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). Joelle is a member of Providence Wesleyan Church in Summerville, SC.
