Get to know the Staff

Steve Burford

Senior Pastor

Steve and his wife, Mary, migrated to Colorado from the West Coast in 1993 and have been serving in local churches here in El Paso County ever since. Steve is passionate about shepherding through teaching and living alongside people in such a way that all would come to know Jesus, desire to live eternally worthy lives, and long for Christ’s return. Steve and Mary’s great joy is their three adult children who love life, love adventure, and are committed to serving God in the local church.
