Charlotte Soriano

Creative Lead

Charlotte.jpg

Charlotte has been attending Red Rocks for the past ten years, and to say it’s been a blast is the understatement of the decade!  God has transformed her life with friends, miracles and the best job she could ever dream of.  Charlotte oversees graphics, production and social media for the Young Adult ministry.  On her free time she’s either enjoying a good movie, adventuring in the backyard of Denver, or gallivanting in Iceland. Just kidding that only happened once. But it’s fun to say. She would rather go outside when it’s raining than when the sky is blue and her go to drink is a soy caramel latte. Cause coffee is life, yo.  #basicwhitegirl

After graduating from Southeastern University he moved out to Colorado and spent just over a year helping start a church in Littleton.

After a few years of ignoring that call, he jumped into the internship program at Red Rocks Church in 2017 and hasn't looked back! In his spare time, you can find Zach enjoying hipster coffee shops, heading to the theater to watch the latest blockbuster, or hanging out with his homies somewhere around Denver.
