College: Downtown



Vintage College is a gathering for doubters, seekers, and followers of Jesus. Our mission is to grow deeper in our understanding of who he is, and help one another grow as disciples of Jesus. We believe that Jesus is worthy of our lives, and hope that college students at Vintage Church will come to know the gospel, live the gospel, and advance the gospel to the ends of the earth. Our prayer is that students would find the freedom that can only be found in knowing Jesus Christ.


Vintage College Seminar exists to equip students to know, live, and advance the gospel. Our goal is to provide a safe place to talk about difficult topics and provide students with a launching pad for being leaders on campus and around our city. Students can feel free to jump into the class on any given week. Questions? Email Ted Yap, College and Students Director for Vintage Church Downtown.

Ted Yap

Ted was raised in the mountains of North Carolina and moved to Raleigh in 2008 to attend NC State University for both undergrad and graduate school. There he learned way more about pine bark and water than anyone should ever know. You can find him riding his bike around downtown, playing bass on Sundays, or pretending to garden. He serves as the College and Students Director and is excited to point others to the freedom he’s found in Jesus.

Josh Carroll

Josh grew up in the Charlotte area before completing his undergraduate work at Appalachian State University. Afterward, God called him to complete a Master’s Degree in Divinity concentrating in Christian Ministry from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Josh joined Vintage in January of 2009, interned for the Durham campus in 2012, and has served as a connector and a greeter. He enjoys spending time with his wife Savannah, watching nerdy television shows, playing disc golf, eating chips and salsa, learning about Jesus, and spending time with friends. He has found it a great honor and pleasure to grow and share life with people at Vintage while having the opportunity to observe and participate in God’s work.

Savannah Carroll

Savannah grew up in Texas, but after 11 years in North Carolina she gladly calls Raleigh home. After graduating from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a concentration in Philosophy & Apologetics in 2013 she is now halfway through another degree in Nursing. She’s been a member at Vintage for the past 4 years where she has served as an intern at Durham campus, a greeter, and currently as a community group leader. She considers it a great honor to be living life with the people at Vintage. If she’s not in school or working, she likes reading, running, trying not to be clumsy, and spending time with her husband.
