After we released our 33 Under 33 cover story earlier this summer, we invited readers to nominate millennial-aged Christian leaders in their communities.

Here's who you came up with:

Katie Davis
@katieinuganda | Uganda, East Africa

Author of Kisses From Katie and founder of Amazima Ministries, Katie Davis became a foster mom to 13 Ugandan girls when she was just 22. Her organization sponsors hundreds of children, supporting their families and allowing them to go to school. (Nominated by Ann Voskamp)

Jamie Grace Harper, 22
@jamiegraceh | Atlanta, Georgia

CCM singer Jamie Grace Harper was the youngest person to receive a Grammy nomination in 2012, the same year she took home a Dove Award for New Artist of the Year. Harper, who is open about her struggles with Tourette syndrome, released her second album, Ready to Fly, earlier this year. (Nominated by Ann Voskamp)

Collin Hansen, 33
@collinhansen | Birmingham, Alabama

Collin Hansen is the editorial director of The Gospel Coalition and a former associate editor at CT. He's the author of the 2008 book, Young, Restless, Reformed: A Journalist's Journey with the New Calvinists, and helped popularized the phrase "new Calvinism." (Nominated by Griffin Gulledge)

Russell Wilson, 25
@DangeRussWilson | Seattle

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson regularly shares his testimony, including in a video with his team called Making of a Champion, where he describes being saved at age 14 after Jesus spoke to him in a dream. "I realized that God gave me so many talents, and I wanted to give him all the glory." (Nominated by Alan Briggs)

Micah Bournes
@micahbournes | Long Beach, California

Micah Bournes is a poet who writes and performs spoken word poems inspired by his faith and African American culture. He has collaborated with Christian rapper Propaganda. In an interview with Bread for the World, Bournes described Jesus as a poet: "He used art to communicate truth . . . When Jesus is revealing himself, he could have just said, 'I am the second person in the Trinity; God in the flesh'. No, he said, 'I am the Good Shepherd. I am the Door. I am the Light'. These are metaphors. He was using poetic language to reveal who he was to us. I see that in Scripture. That influences me." (Nominated by Alayne Campbell)

Rachel Goble
@raegoble | Bay Area, California

Rachel Goble founded the Sold Project nonprofit, which works against the factors that place children in Thai villages at risk for exploitation and trafficking. She splits her time between Thailand and California and also works as a travel and portrait photographer. (Nominated by Westmont College)

Rachel Cruze, 26
@RachelCruze | Nashville

Following in the footsteps of her father, Dave Ramsey, Rachel Cruze is offering financial advice to her generation. Her budgeting tips, dished out in video clips, are straightforward and family-focused. "Contentment is a powerful thing," she said. "When you truly realize who you are in Christ, you can own stuff without being weighed down by it—and you can finally climb off the 'I'll be happy when …' treadmill." (Nominated by Rebecca Halton)

Jessica Cabral
@JessiiicaCabral | Los Angeles

Jessica Cabral sings in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, and is known for her rendition of Hillsong United's "Oceans." She is a student at Azusa Pacific University and worship leader at Pomona First Baptist. A Brazilian-American, Cabral travels to sing at churches and conferences in Central and South America. (Nominated by Hannah Welsh)
