1st Year/2nd Year/3rd Year/4th Year/Grad MEN'S DIGITAL Group #9

Hey folks! My name is Chaz. I grew up in Athens, graduated from UGA, married my amazing wife Kelsey, and moved up to Charlotte to work for a North Point partner church. After that, I taught middle school and elementary school through Teach for America. We are excited to land back in Athens this spring.

I’m interested in everything... Playing music, eating TDS tacos, making coffee, Rubik’s cubes, the growing Star Wars Universe, and I especially love great conversation.

In our group, we will spend our time having honest conversations, asking real questions, and discovering together what it means to love God, love self, and love others.

note: this group is a digital (online-only) group. The first meeting is Tuesday evening, January 26th.

I am very family oriented and have a close relationship with my parents and sister. My husband and I have two beautiful boys who keep us very busy. I look forward to discussing Jesus and pouring into the girls in my group and to see how each of us will grow in our spiritual walk.  I feel it is important to be surrounded by fellow believers. Each helps lift one another up, hold the other accountable, and to sharpen each other.
