Andrew and Sarah Lancaster

Area Director & Mission Staff

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 role 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!

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!

Chas Martin


Wyldlife Staff Associate

Hey! I'm Chas and pictured above is my wife Julia. We moved to Beaufort after graduating from Clemson University in 2019. Julia and I met through volunteer leading Young Life at Clemson, and now she is still volunteering at Beaufort Academy while I'm on staff. We are so excited to be a part of the Beaufort community now and be a part of what the Lord is doing in the low country!


"When the song Reckless Love came on and we were all swaying to it, I just felt this sense of love and that God was really there. I instantly started to cry."
