Hi Friends!
We are the Lancasters, Andrew, Sarah and Ward. We moved to be on staff in Beaufort in 2017. We are originally from North Carolina, but are thrilled to call Beaufort home! Ward was born in 2019, and we're a little biased but he's the greatest! Young Life played a huge roll in both our lives. We met while volunteer leading at NC State and went on staff together after college. We believe in relational ministry and have a huge heart for teenagers. We are so thankful we get to serve this community through a ministry we love so much!
Chas Martin
Staff Associate

Hello! My name is Chas Martin and I am from Clemson, SC. I graduated from Clemson University in 2019. I really enjoy hanging out with friends, playing sports, and outdoor adventuring. I am marrying my fiancé Julia this November and we will be leading Young Life together! I feel called to go on Young Life staff because of the way that my Young Life leader pursued me. Our relationship gave me a clear picture of who Jesus really is and how he feels about me. I believe in the mission of Young Life because it's modeled after Jesus' ministry!

Kimani Brown-Carpenter
Mission Staff

Hey, my name is Kimani Brown-Carpenter. My wife, Jennifer and I have been married since 2017. We have a son named after me so we call him K2 for short. We are both originally from Beaufort! Over the past seven years I’ve been a dance instructor and also work part-time as an assistant PE teacher at Holy Trinity Classical Christian School. I feel called to go on Young Life staff because I have a passion for the next generation.  I can’t wait to see how the Lord uses me in the work He is already doing at Battery Creek High School!
