+Our Church Leadership

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who lead it. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:



Rev. Dan MacDonald - Pastor

Dan graduated with his M.Div. from Denver Seminary in 1978 and has served in a variety of full-time ministry positions including the Billy Graham Association, over the years [see Pastor]. He received his Presbyterian Ordination in 2004. He holds a high view of scripture and loves to take complex concepts and make them easy to understand. His strengths are teaching/preaching God's word, pastoral care, and inspiring people to keep Christ central in their lives. He loves to camp, hike, kayak, and attend musicals with his wife, Linda, as well as spend time with their four adult children and families.

Official Installation Service for Pastor Dan
Our church voted recently (Dec. 2013) to officially call Pastor Dan MacDonald as our full-time pastor, after serving our church for the past 3 & 1/2 years (2010). The Presbytery voted to affirm the call in January and we held a special service on Sunday, March 23rd, 2014 to celebrate his official installation for full-time service.
The service was filled with laughter over jokes about how long the church has been "dating" him, warmth as a number of pastors who have known Dan for a long time shared their appreciation for him, and tears as Dan's father, Rev. Dr. Harry MacDonald, affirmed how meaningful this day was for him and offered the benediction.
The church presented Pastor Dan and his wife, Linda, with a limited edition specially framed print of Jesus feeding the 5000 during the Sermon on the Mount as a gift of appreciation to acknowledge this event. He has since been approved as an ordained minister with our new denomination, Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
