HarrisonHarrison grew up living in Missouri before coming to be a student at Harding University (’07-’11) majoring in Bible and minoring in Oral Communication. After graduation, he came to work full-time with the Downtown teens and has loved it. He currently enrolls in classes with the Harding School of Theology in Memphis each semester, though he rarely takes more than one class at a time. He has been married to the lovely Kelly Dell since New Year’s Eve of 2011, and it’s one of the best decisions he ever made.

Harrison is humbled to serve as part of the staff at Downtown and is thankful for all of the love and support he has received from the DC family, staff, and shepherds. He enjoys sports, games, and the church (in reverse order). His goal is Jesus… to know Him and be like Him.

MarcusHaving grown up in Memphis, Marcus attended Harding University and graduated in 2000 with a B.A. in Theatre and Vocational Ministry with a minor in TV & Radio. While a student, Marcus met his wonderful wife Stacey, a singer, voice teacher, and choir director. They married in 2000, lived in Searcy for a year, then moved to Texas. He and his family returned to Searcy in 2013 after spending twelve years with another wonderful church family having served almost nine of those years as their youth minister.

Marcus has also been working as a professional actor for over 12 years. He has performed in live venues and been invloved in independent film, music video, and national television shows. Marcus has a passion for the use of story in live performance and film for powerful communication. He has an increasing portfolio of written and produced work and has been featured at Winterfest, Uplift, Soul Link and other events and church retreats.

Marcus is thrilled to partner with Harrison in working with the youth and their families at Downtown. He loves working with students in this period of life which is so critical in establishing a foundation for life long faith. He prays for faith, hope, love, wisdom, knowledge, discernment, compassion, and whatever else God would provide to equip the Downtown team and her youth and families to know, love, and follow the Lord.

KayliKayli joined the ministry support staff as the Student Ministries Administrative Assistant in 2016. Kayli was born in Lubbock TX.  She joined the Downtown family along with her husband in 2015, and they both have been immensely blessed during their time.

Though she was born in the USA, she spent the grandest majority of her life traveling around Baltic Europe with her missionary family, experiencing life overseas, as the youngest of six children.

She moved back to the U.S. as a sophomore in high school, and graduated from home in 2011. She attended Harding University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Humanities, majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders. Kayli learned what a deep love and excitement she had for working with children and youth, and is very humbled and excited to be a part of both student ministries.

Kayli married her husband Wyndham only seven short days after graduation on May 16, 2015. They are still extremely happy and googoo-eyed for each other :)
