2015-2016 Ministry Plan (download pdf)


You’ve heard me say that phrase on many occasions because it’s true: I really do love our church. I was blessed to be raised by godly parents who instilled a love for the local church within me. That love has been tested over 25 years of vocational ministry, but it has remained intact and I love the local church now more than ever. I’m blessed to lead a church like Mountainview.

Our mission of Glorifying God, Growing in Jesus, and Going into the World is more than a slogan; it’s a way of life for many of you. Here are a few highlights from 2015:

  • We baptized 34 people!
  • Faith Path is helping parents develop their children’s faith.
  • Our student ministry has seen tremendous growth.
  • Over 50% of adults are in a LifeGroup or Bible study.
  • Encore provides fun and creative ways for our “50 and better” members to serve and build relationships.
  • Stephen Ministry has doubled the number of trained volunteers who are equipped to walk alongside people in need.
  • We helped start two new churches in metro Denver, bringing our current total of new churches to four.
  • We have missions partners in North Africa, Ukraine, the Middle East, Nepal, and Jamaica.
  • Locally, we serve single moms through Bridge of Hope, are reaching international students at Denver University, provide Christian camping through Camp Como, and share Jesus with high school students through Edge Student Life.
  • Here’s the remarkable news: this only scratches the surface of how God is using Mountainview to make a difference in the world!

    As you look over the 2015-2016 ministry plan, I hope you will take a minute to prayerfully consider how God wants to use you — beyond the numbers, beyond dollars and cents. An all-loving, creative God wants to empower and enable you to make a difference in the lives of others.
