Anne Locker

Digital Creative

Anne is our Digital Creative responsible for all digital media and design, as well as our social platforms. As a recent graduate from Xavier University with a Graphic Design degree, Anne’s interest and knack for design dates back to her high school art classes. Through a series of pivotal circumstances and relationships, Anne began designing for churches across the North Point Ministry network. These opportunities ignited in Anne a passion to leverage design as a tool to elevate ministry and bring students closer to Jesus. Additionally, Anne was a student-athlete at Xavier and even though she was a swimmer, she promises she has good hand-eye coordination (just don’t ask her to play golf). Anne believes the next generation of students are paving the way for creativity in the church, and she is honored to be a part of it!

Leader Relations
Supports group registrations & camp logistics for youth leaders

This is Dani’s first year with BigStuf and she is thrilled to join the team! She’s been involved with youth ministry in some capacity for the last 12 years, leading student outreach teams and high school small groups, serving college students, and working as a missionary in both South Africa and Cambodia. She has a passion to see the next generation love and follow Jesus and is excited to walk alongside youth leaders this summer to ensure that camp is fun and runs smoothly! She’ll tell you that the leaders are the true heroes as they serve students behind the scenes, and she’s stoked to get to serve them. Whether it’s hanging with mountain gorillas in Democratic Republic of Congo, paragliding in Switzerland, or jumping from the highest bungee jump bridge in the world, Dani and her husband, Zach, love to adventure together.

Send Dani an email at dani@bigstuf.com if you need any help preparing your group for camp!

Jamie Eichler
CEO
After graduating college with an accounting and finance degree, 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. BigStuf changed Jamie’s life, and he feels incredibly blessed to work with a gifted team who loves 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.

Leah McCollum

Human Resources and Logistics Coordinator

Leah is our Human Resources and Logistics Coordinator. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 2018, Leah began a year-long internship with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where she was able to combine her love for helping others with her incredible work ethic. If you want to know who Leah really is, then look no further than her time as a Young Life leader in Athens, GA, where she spent 4 years pursuing high school girls and teaching them about how much Jesus loves them. Those closest to Leah know that she is as diehard as it gets when it comes to UGA football. The only place you’ll find her on Saturdays in the fall is at Sanford Stadium cheering on the Dawgs! Fun fact: Leah went to BigStuf when she was 3 years old and is so excited to now be a part of the BigStuf family!

She is passionate about challenging and inspiring college students to move out of their comfort zones into discovery of their strengths and passions.
Hannah is certainly no stranger to BigStuf! We’ve had the honor of knowing her for several years while she has supported her husband and BigStuf guitar player, Chad. If you don’t see Hannah hanging with college students, you might find her with her Golden Doodle, Willow, and Bella, her rescue cat. And most likely she’ll be eating queso while watching a Braves game. Hannah brings a ton of value, experience, and fun to our team and we couldn’t be more excited to have her!

You can follow along with our internship on Instagram or through our website.

Chelsea Pettis
Controller
Leads financial department
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 BigStuf, you might find Chelsea cheering at an 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.
