Introducing ... Olive!
Greetings from the East Coast, Chapel Hill family!
My name is Olive Rentz, the newly appointed Youth Minister. I am a senior cadet at The Citadel majoring in Computer Science, and minoring in Spanish. Despite my science degree, I have been called to serve by God as a Chaplain in the United States Air Force. In the Fall I will be attending the St. Paul School of Theology pursuing a Masters in Divinity, and participating in the Air Force’s Chaplain Candidate Program. For now I will be leading the Wednesday Youth Group via zoom every second and fourth week of the month until after I graduate and get married in May! I will arrive in Oklahoma by Mid-June, and then host the meetings in person. I enjoy embroidery and knitting, reading science fiction, watching Doctor Who, and re-reading 2 Corinthians. At The Citadel, I serve as 3rd Battalion’s Cadet Chaplain, where I provide spiritual care to over 500 cadets. My fiance Brian is currently stationed at Tinker AFB. We both are musicians playing brass instruments and rocking out the soprano and tenor ranges in choir! We are looking forward to being a part of the family at Chapel Hill and creating lasting memories with all of you.
