Terrell Hawkins

Sojourner Support, 2017 Krista Colleague

Terrell Hawkins works in Tacoma, WA alongside two others in their Mentorship Business BROTHAS (Battling Real Obstacles Together Helping Achieve Success). Based in the 3 principles of Honor, Integrity and Respect, they provide youth with academic help and skills that allow them to better themselves and their community.Outside of this, he is a Para-Educator at IDEA High School (Industrial Design Engineering and Art) where he serves as a Study Skills teacher. When he is not doing either of these things, you will most likely find Terrell somewhere having a “deep” conversation, laughing way to loud or listening to Drake.   

Maren Haynes Marchesini

Service Ethics, 2007 Krista Colleague

Maren spent one year volunteering with the Presbyterian Church (USA)'s Young Adult Volunteer Program in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands of Tucson, Arizona. There, she worked with homeless and migrant communities on a variety of humanitarian aid projects through Southside Presbyterian Church. Maren then moved to Seattle to pursue a PhD in Ethnomusicology, studying the intersections between identity, power, participation, and music genre in American Christianity. She now lives in Montana with her husband Michael Marchesini (also a Krista colleague) where she teaches at Montana State University, directs music and worship at a church, and leads community youth music ensembles. 

Lindsey Hendrixson

Board Liason, 2009 Krista Colleague

Lindsey Hendrixson joined the Krista Colleague community in 2009 as she was preparing for a year of spending time with youth in Kampala, Uganda through the Mennonite Central Committee’s SALT program. Returning home, she felt the need to further develop “hard” skills to be better equipped to love and serve communities – whether in the States or internationally.  This led to earning a Master of Social Work degree at Columbia University, and the unintended consequence of living far from the NYC subway lines – the joy of a bicycle! Her social work experience includes working with refugee families resettling in Seattle, defendants in NYC and now with those living with Multiple Sclerosis across the U.S. Her husband, Andrew, is a studio artist, and they dream of vocational convergence somewhere at the intersection of faith, art and loving their neighbors.

Damon Motz-Storey (he/him/his, they/them/theirs) has lived in the Rocky Mountains, the Philadelphia suburbs, and now the city of Portland, Oregon. He served with the Quaker Voluntary Service in Portland, OR in 2016-2017 as the Program Assistant for Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, where he is now the Healthy Climate Program Director leading regional climate advocacy efforts from a public health perspective. A lifelong Quaker, Damon is passionate about creative storytelling as a means for social change, whether through campaign messaging, choral music, or drag queen performances.
