Chase Carlisle

Ministry Fellow at Dartmouth

chase-carlisleChase grew up in Hallsville, Texas, and received a bachelor's degree in Christian ministry from LeTourneau University. During college he was called into ministry and also discovered his love of teaching. After preaching and teaching throughout college, and for a few years post-college, God called Chase to attend Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary where he earned a Master of Arts in biblical studies. It was there that he met his wife, and best friend, Julia.

Chase loves the outdoors, whether it be in the form of fishing, hiking, or ultimate frisbee. He loves cooking, smoking meat (especially Texas BBQ), and hosting friends and family in their home with Julia. He and Julia welcomed their first son, Emmett, into the world in April 2017.

In the meantime, she loves the unique community environment afforded by campus and takes every chance she gets to learn and grow from her peers and mentors.
