Our Staff

Our staff invest in college students. They are incredibly impactful. Students are growing in their relationship with Christ, while mutually enjoying the riches of fellowship and being sent to their roommates, classmates, teammates and the world.

Danny Goeking-

Lover of books, food (especially Chicago Cheesesteak Company), the Kansas City Royals, playing sports, all manner of quaffs, and constructing things at home.

Jesus first, my beautiful Nicole second, and my children, Charlie, Viola, Evie, and Mabel third.

Nicole Goeking-

ESFJ, lover of cinnamon, Fall, all things comfy, making you food, and a registered nurse.

Wife to Danny, mother to Charlie, Evie, and Viola. I have an open door and I'm an open book. I'm passionate about listening to stories and creating safe spaces. Come to our home to see the chaos and joy of our children, all while I feed you!

Brandon Mahler-

Team Leader / Operations


INTJ, Baseball History & Analytics Nerd, Maximizer, Futuristic, Avid St. Louis Cardinals fan.

Husband to my wonderful wife, Michelle, father to my beautiful daughter, Belle. I love cooking and trying food from around the world. Talking baseball/sports in general is the key to my heart. I enjoy quality conversation no matter the subject. Thanks to my wife, I am expanding my horizons to enjoy musical theater and even ballroom dancing (shhh, don't tell her!).

Michelle Mahler


Wife to Brandon, mother of Belle, fluid conversationalist, enthusiastic about musicals, Lucille Ball, and Asian cuisine.

Need fashion advice? My college degree and I have got you covered. I get excited over little things, love hosting people in my home, will always offer you coffee with whipped cream, and have an arsenal of questions for you. So please, text me and I'll invite you over!

Tina Eck


ISFJ, personal movie database, lover of coffee, Phase 10, and Harry Potter. 

I enjoy quality time, words of affirmation, and am a self-proclaimed Disney aficionado. I laugh at everything, am directionally challenged, love to bake, Sudoku player, and would love to be your friend.

Kate Stringer

I love coffee, sleeping, Jesus who loves me perfectly, and whenever I don't have to cook. Take me somewhere with water and I'm happy. Come hang out at my house-- sometimes its messy, but you'll be greeted with warmth and an invitation to play barbies and superheroes.

My husband is a rockstar, my kids (Charlotte and Teddy) are hilarious and fun, and I'm always interested in getting to know the real you!

Spencer Whaley

ENFP, Conquerer of Qdoba, and lover of movies (especially Lord of the Rings).

I enjoy coffee, good conversation, and good food. If you want to get to know me, let's grab lunch! But be warned, I am never on time, but I'm always present.

Jamie Alexander


I enjoy being outside whether that is hiking in Arkansas or riding my motorcycle, I am passionate about food (specifically Springfield Chinese food) and worship music and if you talk to me long enough you will come to find that I really can’t remember a person’s name to save my life. I am a pretty laid back person but can be known to get competitive in a game of Catan, and my favorite season is Fall because its the best.

Hannah Earel


ENTP, passionate that one should never stop learning, lover of fall, food, and family.

My favorite two cities are Kansas City and Paris. 9 times out of 10 I will show you a picture of my niece so just go with it, she's beautiful. I don't like introducing myself but love people and like to eat but don't like cooking so come say hi and we can go get some food.

Sebastian Sabev


Bulgarian American, Soccer Fanatic, BBQ sauce, Music & Deep discussions

Husband to my wife Laura. I enjoy economics, learning and reading magazines. Traveling, trying foods from different cultures and playing soccer are a few of my favorite hobbies.

Laura Sabev


Lover of coffee/tea, cheese, baby animal videos, all things Kansas City MO, laughing & encouraging people

Wife to my sweet Sebastian. I'm my happiest when the sun is out and I'm spending quality time with people. I enjoy reading biographies, watching movies and learning more about the world through my husband!

Matt DieKemper

[Athletes in Action]


Former college athlete. Lover of Jesus. I enjoy seeing nature. Self-proclaimed great singer. Enjoy listening to good music, especially Christian rap. If you buy me food, I will have a great appreciation for you. I like to lift weights and play video games.

I am an open book so if you have a question, feel free to ask. We can go hang out and talk. I make great guacamole so if I make it for you, then you know that it is real.

Matthew Groves


Big appetite for food, knowledge, and experience. Theology to metallurgy, ancient skills to modern science, Wes Anderson to The Wheelhouse.

I love how God works, people work, things work. Enjoy interesting foods, movies, skills, and solutions.
