CCF Staff

Angela Denton-Rachel has been a part of CCF since time began (or at least since 1989) as first a Graduate Student, then an Intern, then as Associate Campus Minister, then as Director, then as Part-time Associate Campus Minister (she had her second baby), and finally for the last 6 years as Director of Ministry. She loves college students and Campus Ministry! A perfect day at “work” for Angela includes a staff meeting (she loves her co-workers and likes to be bossy), a few one-on-ones with students, eating chocolate, a small group Bible study, some good worship time, and some frozen yogurt with M&Ms on it. Her other loves include being a Mom to her 2 adorable children – Abby 13 and Dylan 11 – and a wife to her amazing husband, Gary. She likes exercise, sports, chocolate, outside things, people, reading and her 2 kittens, Tiger and Lightning!

Donnie Holliday has lived in Athens, GA his entire life. After completing a B.S.Ed. degree from UGA, Donnie taught middle school students math and science for nine years. In 2009 Donnie moved out of the classroom into campus ministry. He has thoroughly enjoyed the move and loves sharing life with college students. Donnie does not view campus ministry as merely a job, but as an opportunity to be faithful with who God has trusted him. He is humbled and thankful everyday that God has blessed him with the opportunity to minister to college students. Donnie and his wife, Beth, met in campus ministry at UGA. They married in 2003. Donnie and Beth welcomed their first daughter, Lexie, into the world in March 2008. In March of 2013, they welcomed their second daughter, Kerrington. The girls remind them on a daily basis that the Kingdom of God belongs to those that would receive it like little children. Donnie enjoys spending time with his family, exercising, sports, and reading.

Sam got involved at CCF as a freshmen in 2016. He graduated in 2019 with degrees in Religion and Communication. He wanted to go into ministry for several years before he started working at CCF. After interning at CCF for a year, he was invited to join the staff team! Sam has a passion for Outreach and Discipleship. He loves connecting with students on campus, and getting them involved at CCF. He also spends a lot of time reaching out to CCF's alumni and supporters through digital media. When he's not at CCF, you'll find him rock climbing, white water kayaking, playing trading card games, or reading a good book in the park.

Kristen Fowler is a graduate of the University of Georgia, with a degree in Advertisting. She served as a CCF intern and is ecstatic about her position as Minister of Office Management and Community. Kristen would like to laughingly remind everyone that marriage is *not* a staff requirement. Kristen is grateful to work in a place that encourages Recreational Ministry--that is, sharing her love of crocheting and Korean Dramas with students (and letting them teach her how to longboard!) AKA: (My job > Yours)

Brooklyn found CCF as a freshman, and immediately started leading with the worship team. She has been an integral member since then; she even served as the student worship leader her senior year. Brooklyn graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in English, and was invited to join the staff team as the Minister of Worship. Throughout her time in college and serving at CCF, God made it very clear that he was leading her into full time ministry. Brooklyn loves leading with the worship team and inviting others into community with God through worship. When not meeting with students or running practices, you can find Brooklyn at one of the many coffee shops around town.

Roel Salinas first found CCF as a freshman in 2014 when he was looking for more ways to get involved on campus. He graduated from UGA in 2017 with a degree in psychology and then interned the following year. He fell in love with campus ministry as a career, and in 2018, he began a dual degree program, pursuing a Master’s in Social Work at UGA and a Master’s of Divinity at Emory. Since 2019, he has been working at CCF as a grad assistant and joined staff officially in 2021. Roel’s favorite part about ministry is people. He is hoping to use his education to help students through times of crisis and in developing their identity and beliefs. In his free time, Roel enjoys hiking, going to the climbing gym, listening to a ton of podcasts, and playing video games.
