    Meet the RD

    Nora Chambers RD
    Hannah Gilstrap,
    Resident Director

    "By being an RD, I am able to help, encourage, and love young women who are in this monumental time of transition in their lives. I was impacted by Residential Life and Housing, and now I want to create lasting memories for my students as well. Nora Chambers and Simmons Halls are places where laughter, joy, tears, and lots of pajama parties happen, but it is also where the Lord is found, community is built, and authentic relationships are made. What better way to live out the fullness of Jesus by doing what He did: Living with people in their everyday lives. I love watching young women grow into the women God has so uniquely created them to be. By the end of the year, my hope is that each resident will leave knowing their worth and thriving in the passions the Lord has placed within them. My hope is to see each and every one of them leave knowing that they have the opportunity to love the world around them."

    Community Outreach

    This year, Nora Chambers & Simmons Hall will continue to partner with an organization called The Zion Project. The Zion Project helps women and teens who have been sex trafficked around the Chattanooga and Cleveland area. We are thrilled to bring awareness to this issue within our community, and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of something that mirrors the restoration we find in Christ.
