MEET THE GS TEAM
GS started as a group of committed volunteers at a single church. But forming a non-profit organization allowed us to open up opportunities to other churches and youth groups to come alongside with us. We wanted to bring big energy camps to little churches. Our team has grown over the years and these people, along with dozens of others, are committed to serving high schoolers, middle schoolers, and their youth leaders in whatever way we can. We have a heart for student ministry and are honored you would let us work alongside you.
Professionally, Kevin is a Learning & Development Executive Coach, helping companies get the most out of their teams. As the president, Kevin provides leadership and strategic direction, as well as the main communicator for GS. At WinterCamp, you'll see him speaking during each of the sessions.
Game Manager, Environments Specialist
Kirsten uses her gifts in many areas to enhance the GS vision. As the Environments Specialist, Kirsten helps out with creating the stage designs at our events. She also uses her creatively strategic mind to come up with the strangest games to generate community among students. You will see Kirsten as the MC/hype woman up on stage getting the students involved during camp and other events.
Before the event, during the event, and after the event, Leslie is the one making it all happen. She deals with the overall coordination including signed contracts, venue booking, and church registration for events. You got a question, you go to Leslie. She’s the know-it-all in this case. During camp, you can find her behind the scenes with a clipboard coordinating everything.
Admin Director, Lighting Specialist
Drew takes care of the boring stuff nobody else enjoys: tax forms, document control, note-taking, and other exciting things. Hey, somebody has to do it! We’re thankful Drew has the skill. He is also our Lighting Specialist who programs the stage lights to que up with our songs. Trust me, it’s awesome! So during camp, you'll find him back in the booth lighting up the room.
Sound Booth Specialist
Katelynn helps develop the content of our messages. Not only that, but she keeps all the guys in check back in the sound booth. During camp, you'll find her helping out back in the sound booth.
Jeff is our favorite because he lets us do the things within budget. However, we are all very stubborn and don’t always stay within budget… so he’s even better at his job because he’s dealing with us! We love him. He loves us. It’s all good. During camp, you’ll find him helping wherever he’s needed, which is way more help than it sounds like it is.
Jess is everywhere, helping with everything. She is incredibly organized, so she’s on top of organizing and coordinating our Merch area where you can buy all our really cool swag. During camp, you'll find her in the merch area and the lobby restocking that bottomless hot chocolate.
Sully is the keeper of all the things. He manages our equipment, hardware and software. This means he keeps track of the quality of the gear, fixes the gear when it can be fixed, and replaces it when it cannot be fixed. During camp, you will find him in the back of the event room coordinating the flow of the service.
Church Relations, Electrical Specialist
You got a need in your church’s student ministry? Go find Zach. Zach creates and maintains relationships with our partner churches. He communicates with the youth pastor to see what they need, and how GS can help meet that need. Oh, Zach also specializes in construction and electricity. Which helps us not electrocute ourselves. That's a big deal. During camp, you’ll find him fixing whatever breaks throughout the weekend.
Marketing Manager, Design Specialist
Karleigh makes us look good. From literally anything design and content related, she also manages all the marketing for GS. That means the overall voice and vibe of GS comes from her talents. During camp, you’ll find her running behind the scenes coordinating the flow of the session games so there are no awkward moments.
Team Relations, Social Media Specialist
As the Team Relations Coordinator, Gabi helps keep us all in line, which is priceless. She is wrangling the band, the Crew members, Staff members, and any other volunteers we recruit for our events. She also helps us be social. Our Instagram and Facebook and all other social media channels are all thanks to her. During camp, you'll find her where the action is because she's posting it all on social media!
Worship Director, Video Specialist
Konner creates all the videos GS produces, which look absolutely incredible. He’s got some serious skills. Konner also directs the musical aspect of GS events. He uses his gifts to create an environment that draws students and leaders into worship moments. At camp, you'll see him up on stage leading worship!
Cody was the best of us. He could figure out any tech solution, and build anything Kirsten designed. We miss him dearly but we know we'll see him again one day.
