Thank you!

Meet Danae Felsch, Volunteer Coordinator

The majority of Danae's background has been in Hotel and Restaurant Management, with her most recent experience being as a human resources specialist in non-profit work that serves the poor of Nashville, TN. She was first introduced to Dallas's teachings through James Bryan Smith's books, and as a result, pursued and graduated with a Masters in Christian Spiritual Formation from Friends University. Originally from Australia, she splits her time between there and Nashville, and is convinced she has the cutest, yet most entitled dog - Theo the Great.
