Meet our staff


  • Bruce Spear, Pastor

    Ask Bruce why he became a pastor and he will tell you it's because he loves being with people made in God's image which includes, well, everyone. He has a Master of Divinity degree from Denver Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree in Christian Spirituality from the Graduate Theological Foundation. He has been a pastor for over 25 years, and his wife Susan is a college professor and poet as well as the church organist and accompanist.

  • Pat Russell, cre, pastor of spiritual formation

    Pat has all the right "documentation" to qualify her as our pastor of spiritual formation: Master of Arts in Theology from Fuller, certification in Spiritual Direction from Denver Seminary, and Colorado Cohort status with Renovare Institute to name just a few. But one only has to be around her a little while to know she is a great spiritual guide. Pat has been in ministry for over 30 years, working with young people in Germany and the U.S., women in Asia, and overall pastoral care for a large congregation in Parker.
