Mrs. Danae (Corley) Stack (’10) serves as the Senior Director of Advancement for Orphan Outreach. She has been heavily involved in serving Christ faithfully for many years, working with different ministries. Danae has served through classroom teaching, church and non-profit leadership, and currently orphaned and vulnerable children across the world. 

Danae and her husband, Dante, are parents to two wonderful boys through adoption. As her journey evolves, Mrs. Stack shares, “Through the years, I personally felt God impress on me more and more that the call to love the fatherless is not for a select few like Mother Teresa, but for average people like me. God could have used so many methods for his rescue plan, but His pleasure is to use the church and each of us broken vessels as His tool.”

Danae shares that what brought her to ETBU stemmed from her desire for a strong community: “I was interested in a small campus and intimate feel as well as the Christian environment. Choosing ETBU [even though my older sister was already a student there] ended up being a sweet time, and we so enjoyed the overlap of our time on campus.” During her time on the Hill, Mrs. Corley-Stack was positively impacted by faculty and staff members, including Dr. Sultan, Dr. Holloway, Dr. Nandamudi, and Mr. Thompson. “They intentionally set aside time for conversations and mentorship, and those relationships still last to this day.”

Danae recalls some of her friends from her time on the Hill: “I had the privilege of rooming with my best friend from high school, Cameron – we were an inseparable duo. John Githinji, Kayce Gilbreath, and Hannah Walker are all friends I made during my time at ETBU, and they are still close friends who get together as much as possible!”

Looking back, Danae reflects that “ETBU was such a fun, carefree time. I loved going on random adventures and making great relationships. Some of my best memories were the conversations in the quad or on a walk around campus.”
