Casey Rolape

Founder and President of Worth the Risk

Hey there! My name is Casey Rolape and I love to encourage and equip women to do things for Jesus.  I have been married to my best friend, Michael, for over a decade and together we have the privilege of loving and caring for our three amazing children:  Will, Ben and Emmie. Our family resides in Southern Illinois where our roots run deep. In addition to working at Worth the Risk, I help my husband manage and operate Steady Oak Ranch.  

Things I enjoy include my family, friends, lots of coffee (surprise, surprise), playing volleyball and spike ball, authentic conversations, a good Netflix series (while cuddled up next to my husband), writing and speaking for the glory of God and seeing our Creator move in the hearts of women.  I am so excited you are here- my prayer is that you would be moved and encouraged to take some risks for the One who is worth risking for!

Brittney Dillon

Assistant Manager of Content Development

Hey guys! My name is Brittney Dillon and I’m so glad you’re here. I live in the small midwestern town of Carterville, Illinois with my husband Ryan and our four beautiful children Jeff, Myklyn, Maddox, and Maxton. I desire that every woman know who she is in Christ and that this realization would change them forever. I’m an encourager by nature and I pray I can help in some way to cheer you on today.

Most of my days are spent doing “mom things” and honestly, I love it. I love watching my kiddos play sports, homeschooling my son, hosting birthday parties, cooking with my family, and having family dance offs (or maybe a sing off, just depends on what kind of mood we’re in!) When I’m not mommin’ it up I love having date nights with my husband, drinking ALL THE COFFEE, and doing all the girly things! Because our days are so full, we often have a messy house - but we have a home full of love and that’s ok with me!

Amanda Brown

Assistant Manager of Content Development

Hi! I'm Amanda. I live in Makanda, Illinois where I share my home with my husband, Zeek, and our two beloved doggos. Originally from Wisconsin, I moved to Cairo, Illinois after my college graduation in 2010, and have been in Southern Illinois since. My husband, also a transplant to Southern Illinois (originally from Florida), shares my passion to dig deep into and celebrate what the Lord is doing in this region. We are happy to call Southern Illinois home!

I was healed of cancer as a small child, after originally being given only three days to live. I grew up knowing the power of the Holy Spirit because of this miracle, and learning to walk in communion with God. During my time in Cairo, I experienced the life-altering gift of community and authenticity, which developed a passion within me to see people know their dynamic identity in Christ and live confident, free lives. I am equally devoted to racial reconciliation and unity in the body of Christ. I believe that authenticity and laughter are two of Heaven’s best gifts, and I can often be found prattling on and giggling about the difficulties of being an adult over a cup of good coffee.

Megan Witt

Social Media Manager

What's up? My name's Megan and I'm here to dance. (This isn't a dance-off? Okay... I'm dancing all-the-time anyway.) I'm very passionate about the Enneagram (maybe because I'm a hardcore SEVEN). I have a lot of jobs, but that's just the way I thrive. My main goal in life is to point people to Christ. Social media is a great way for me to do that, which is why this ministry is such a good outlet for me!

Sarah Ralls

Creative Manager

Oh man, where to start… I’ve been “artsy” since a very young age. I’ve loved photography since I was a teenager. I took random college classes for video and web design. My full time job at Cornerstone Church allows me to use all these skills to help people follow Jesus. I’m thankful to be a part of the Worth The Risk team as we learn how to connect a community of godly women who want to take steps outside their comfort zones as we follow Jesus.
