A big Florida Gators fan, Katie often dresses her boys in orange and blue (Chuck included). Her favorite movies are Pride and Prejudice and The Young Victoria. She grew up playing softball and has a love for baseball that she looks forward to passing on to their boys. (Who’s up for a Rockies game?)
Chuck is a Colorado native and has lived most of his life on the Front Range. He graduated from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK, and earned his Master of Divinity with Fuller Theological Seminary. Before seminary, Chuck worked in media production. He also served for six months as a missionary in London, England, during the 2012 Olympics.
Chuck enjoys reading, cooking, fitness, and many varieties of games. A writer with an interest in sci-fi and fantasy, he’s a fanboy of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and their literary friends, the Inklings.
Pastor Ed is the son of missionary parents and surrendered his heart, mind and life to the Lord at an early age on a Sunday afternoon after thinking through the Spirit filled messages he received during Church school and a worship service. Ed responded to God’s call to ministry when in University. He met a very wonderful lady in a lunch line in Chicago which began an amazing friendship. Janet and Ed were married and God blessed them with three children, all of whom are now married to amazing friends. Ed completed graduate degrees at Westminster Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary and received his doctorate at Covenant Theological Seminary.
Ed enjoys good books, great art, and exceptional dark chocolate! Ed stays active with hiking, biking, racquetball, skiing, wood work and oil painting. He loves sharing special times connecting with God and people.
Matthew is a Colorado native and a Denver Seminary grad. He has been pursuing part-time ministry most of his adult life and has helped several smaller communities with worship, pulpit-fill, and logistics since he graduated seminary in 2015.
His full-time gig is as a SAHD (Stay-At-Home-Dad) to his three kids, aged 2-7yo. He is married to a bona-fide SuperHero named Jaci who works in the field of nursing at The Medical Center of Aurora.
In his free-time, Matthew loves cooking, gardening, keeping up with all things Star Wars, working out, watching movies, and (more recently, during the pandemic) video gaming! He and his wife are well traveled and can’t wait to get out and see the world again!
