Jamie Eichler

CEO: Leads the team in day to day operations to achieve the vision of BigStuf

After graduating from college with a degree in accounting and finance, Jamie put his education to good use and was originally hired by BigStuf in 2000 to fold t-shirts. Since then, he has done almost every job BigStuf has to offer, making him the perfect person to lead our team! BigStuf changed Jamie’s life, and he’s incredibly blessed to work with a gifted team who love Jesus and sharing their faith to make a difference in the lives of students. Jamie may be short, but nothing about his life is small! From his creative ideas and challenging thoughts to his impeccable wake surfing skills, he’s always bringing something new and exciting to the team. Jamie and his wife, Kristin, are parents to their sweet daughter Alice and are looking forward to welcoming their second daughter this year. Bring on the caffeine!

Roger Laney

CFO: Responsible for all things financial

20 years ago Roger met Lanny Donoho, founder of BigStuf, and began working as the external accountant. He just couldn’t stay away and eventually we persuaded him to join us full-time on staff. Roger feels privileged to utilize his education and experience to help direct and care for the business side of BigStuf. He is grateful to serve with a group of people who love what they do, support each other and work together to serve God and change lives. Outside of BigStuf, you’ll find Roger taking advantage of every opportunity to be outdoors—fishing, golfing, swimming, hiking, spending time with his family, attending FSU football games or riding through the North Georgia mountains in his Jeep.

Tiffany Andrews

Creative Coordinator: Manages all creative components of camp and the BigStuf store

Tiffany was a teacher for seven years before coming to BigStuf. At first she was nervous to leave teaching, but when she realized she would be working with and impacting students on a much larger scale, she jumped on board at BigStuf. And boy are we glad she did! She loves being able to provide students with the opportunity to take home a piece of BigStuf in the store. Whether it’s a BigStuf tee, a book that will help grow their relationship with the Lord or simply a picture online that will remind them of a special moment at camp, Tiffany’s goal is to provide students with something to carry with them long after camp ends. Outside of work, you can find Tiffany with her nose in a book or flying through the air to land her next trick at Terminus Wake Park with her husband Chase.

Meagan Yates

Registration & Logistics Coordinator: Main contact for all church groups

A graduate of the University of North Georgia (go Nighthawks!), Meagan serves on our team as Registration & Logistics Coordinator. This girl loves organization, planning, and even spreadsheets, making her the perfect person to help you navigate the registration process. One of our favorite things about Meagan? Besides her cool stories about her many travels to Japan (did we mention she’s half Japanese?), it’s her deep passion for creating environments for students to grow in their relationships with the Lord. She’s been serving at high school summer camps since she was a student herself, and we’re thrilled to have her serving on staff with us at BigStuf.  In her free time, you’ll find Meagan outside, likely running or rock climbing with her husband Adam and dog Kuma.

Lyndsay Wilson

Leader Relations: Building relationships with Youth Leaders

After attending BigStuf as a camper for several years, Lyndsay became an intern in 2012. She fell in love with the ministry and mission of BigStuf and was thrilled to join the team as the Registration Coordinator in 2015. Lyndsay loves people–especially youth leaders! She loves working with them to take care of all the camp logistics so that by the time they arrive to camp, all they have to do is focus on leading their students well. In her free time, you can find Lyndsay and her husband Bennett exploring the city of Atlanta and spending hours in local coffee shops while listening to music that is three times their ages.

Email Lyndsay at lyndsay@bigstuf.com.

Chelsea Pettis

Controller: Over day-to-day financial activity, contracts & staff/artist logistics

In 2007, Chelsea was given a new client at her first accounting job: BigStuf. Little did she know in just a few short months this connection would lead to a dream job that combined her love for numbers and passion for ministry. From planning and budgeting camp expenses to picking out candy and couch covers for environments to problem-solving backstage, Chelsea does so much more than crunch numbers. She loves that there is never a dull moment in the process of maximizing every dollar and seeing details come together to create an amazing camp for students. Outside of work, you might find Chelsea cheering at a FSU football game, searching for treasures at HomeGoods, sipping on an iced mocha while watching HGTV, caring for her sweet son Ethan or even baiting her hook on Lake Lanier with her husband Dallas.

Brittany Kennicutt

Financial Administrator: Gives support to BigStuf’s accounting team

Brittany joined the BigStuf team in 2010 and works part time in the accounting world. While her job includes making sure everyone is organized, paying bills, depositing money and managing mounds of paper work, Brittany can’t think of a better place to do it all! With all the hard work comes endless laughs, unforgettable memories and the ability to witness students encounter Jesus throughout the summer. When not working, Brittany enjoys her new hobby of growing all different types of flowers in her yard and spending time with her husband and their daughter, Emma James.

Jeremy Kennicutt

Production Manager: BigStuf Events

Jeremy came to BigStuf as a camper in 1999, came back as an intern in 2004 and we haven’t been able to get rid of him since! He now works as the Production Manager, overseeing all the technical aspects of camp. He also manages BigStuf Events, our full service sound, lighting and video company. In other news, Jeremy loves the color green, vacationing to Vegas and spending time at home with his sweet wife Brittany and their newest arrival, a little girl named Emma James.

 

Jonathan Amacher

Technical Director

Jonathan first attended BigStuf in 2004 as a camper. It was the first time he experienced something of that magnitude, and so he continued to come back as a camper every summer until he was eligible to be an intern. With his older sister as his predecessor, he applied and was chosen for the internship in 2011. After his internship, we just couldn’t shake him! We decided to hire him as our full time Technical Director to manage the warehouse and makes sure all of our production gear is in good shape and excellent working condition. In his free time, Jonathan is an all around adrenaline junkie always looking for a new adventure. He enjoys mountain biking, rock climbing, skateboarding and anything else dangerous (including bear wrestling).

Kathryn Garren

Assistant to Executive Director 

After attending BigStuf as a camper for five years and serving as an intern and summer staff member for three more after that, we finally got Kat to make the move to Atlanta and officially join our staff. And truth be told: she’s incredible! She somehow manages to keep up with Jamie and all of the staff happenings while managing life as a full-time graduate student. And did we mention she’s also a nurse? When she’s not busy making sure things at BigStuf are organized and running smoothly, working hard at grad school or putting in time as our camp nurse, you can find Kat exploring all of the Mexican food the city of Atlanta has to offer, making new Spotify playlists, binge watching Gilmore Girls, or obsessing over cute puppy videos.

Luke Reichart

Production Technician 

A Colorado native with a love for the outdoors, Luke joined our team to help produce incredible experiences at BigStuf Events. After attending Bible school abroad in both Greece and Sweden, Luke came to us as an intern before joining our full-time events staff earlier this year. He loves music, photography, traveling, and in his spare time is incredible at woodworking (you can see some of his handiwork in our environments at camp). We’re so glad to have someone so passionate about using his gifts and leadership to create irresistible environments to reach people for Christ.
