Daniel Allen, Ministry Team Leader
Daniel began serving with InterVarsity in 2013 after graduating from UCLA with a B.A. in Communication Studies and a minor in Film. He spent two years serving with InterVarsity at Cal State Long Beach before moving to Orange to plant a new chapter at Chapman University. He currently serves as the Ministry Team Leader in Central Orange County and helps coach & care for the chapters at Chapman University, Santa Ana College, and Santiago Canyon College.
After bouncing around between the Inland Empire, the Midwest, Los Angeles, and Long Beach, Daniel and his wife Charissa have found their way to Orange County where they live, work, serve, and play. Charissa previously served on staff with InterVarsity at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and CSULB, and is presently pursuing an MSMFT at Fuller Seminary.
When they aren't on campus for classes or ministry, you can find Daniel & Charissa enjoying hipster coffee shops, masquerading as amateur chefs, and enjoying many, many movies. They love attending and serving at Newsong Church in Santa Ana, and cannot wait to meet you!
Divya Putty, Ministry Intern
Divya currently serves as a Ministry Intern at Chapman University and Santa Ana College. She graduated from Chapman in 2020 with a B.A. in Music and a cluster in Leadership. During her time in college, Divya was involved with InterVarsity as a member and leader discipling students and serving as a vocalist on our worship team!
As a Ministry Intern, Divya is eager to continue engaging with students at Chapman and SAC, leading them to explore God’s place in their lives and experience His transformational love. She loves meeting new people and she's super excited to meet you!
Whether on campus, in the Circle, or out on the town, you’ll find Divya exploring restaurants with friends, making Indian food and Ramen, or eating mint chocolate chip ice cream (she’s a big foodie). Keep your ears open because she’s usually singing about 90% of the time.
Crosby Tinucci, Ministry Intern
After graduating from Chapman University in 2020 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a B.A. in Spanish, Crosby is excited about continuing to work with students from Orange County as a Ministry Intern at Chapman and Santiago Canyon College. Crosby is passionate about seeing students experience real connection with God and with others. He is looking forward to meeting you this next year!
If you are ever trying to find Crosby, the best place to look is outside! Whether he is going for a run around Orange or adventuring to somewhere new, he loves praying and playing in God’s creation. His favorite adventure buddy is his fiancé Madi. The two enjoy frequenting parks for picnics and hiking together.
