Orientation Coordinators

Lindsey Altvater (MDiv ’16)

As a former high school English teacher, Lindsey is a self-proclaimed nerd who loves life’s simple pleasures: hammocks, being barefoot, the smell of fresh laundry, a good book, Vietnamese iced coffee, laughing until it hurts, fragrant gardens, etc.  She is an alum of Elon University and a native of Greensboro, NC, where she lives with her brilliant wife, Laura, and their sweet dogs, Maggie and Harvey.  Lindsey is pursuing ordination in the Presbyterian Church (USA), and she’s excited about interning with First Christian Church, a Disciples of Christ congregation, in her neighborhood.


Chelsea Yarborough (MDiv ’15)

Chelsea is from the beautiful city of Baltimore, MD and a 2012 graduate of Elon University. She currently serves as an Associate Minister at United Cornerstone Missionary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, NC, serves on our community Worship Committee, and is one of the leaders of the Divinity School Worship Team, Lift Every Voice. In her free time, Chelsea enjoys poetry slams, traveling, and Yoohoo.
