Eric "Boots" DavisProgram Director
Since 2006, Eric has dedicated his career to Narrow Gate Lodge. His responsibilities include managing admissions, campus staff and interns and teaching bible study. He was born in Milwaukee, WI, is married to his dear wife Allie, and they have two baby girls. When asked what keeps him working at Narrow Gate, Eric replied, “I have a deep passion for seeing people come alive with the transforming power and love of Jesus. Because of my first-hand experience with the power of discipleship while a student at Narrow Gate (2005), one of my greatest joys is to see people develop a love for God’s Word and a life-changing intimacy with God.”
Christian HarrisonAdmission Coordinator
Christian graduated from Narrow Gate in February 2017, after which he served as an intern until joining the staff in January 2018. As Admissions and Foundation Coordinator, Christian helps manage the process of interviewing potential students, and is responsible for the Narrow Gate students’ Foundation phase of the program. This includes taking care of each student’s daily needs, teaching biblical curriculum, leading hikes, maintaining and organizing Foundation gear and equipment, and seeing the Foundation students through the program and to graduation. When he has time, Christian enjoys golfing, tennis, playing video games, dank, and hiking.
Daniel BellDiscipleship Pastor
If there is one thing that stands out about Daniel it’s his genuine commitment to the Great Commission. With 25 years experience in pastoral ministry, Daniel consistently dedicates his time and talent to loving God and loving others. Hailing from San Bruno, California you’d never guess that as a youngster Daniel was a 10-time National clogging/buckdancing champion, gracing the Grand Ole Opry stage at 14. These days he spends his free time woodworking, traveling, exploring the BBQ culture of America and is said to make a mean rack of ribs!
Weston BrannDiscipleship Coordinator
Weston graduated from Narrow Gate Lodge in 2011 and has now returned to us as the Discipleship Coordinator! His passion is to disciple each one of the students during the Community phase by teaching them the fundamentals of Scripture, godly relationships, property management and how to live in Community. Aside from serving at Narrow Gate Lodge full time, Weston also preaches at Refuge Church in Spring Hill, TN on a regular basis. Weston loves spending down time with his wife, Kerri, and one year old son, Urban.
Wanda StoneAdministrative Director
As a mother of a young man who came through Narrow Gate Lodge, Wanda is well acquainted with the magnitude of life transformation Narrow Gate students encounter. Her responsibilities include providing parental support to parents whose sons are enrolled as well as bookkeeping and human resource work. When she’s not at the Lodge, you can find her gardening, knitting, and spending time with her grandchildren.
Heather YorkMinistry Assistant
Although she's been a part of our family for over 5 years now and is the wife of Narrow Gate Lodge graduate, Zack York, Heather joins us on staff as the Ministry Assistant because of her amazing organizational skills and love for people!
