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.

Greg Fell

Executive Pastor

Greg gets excited about shepherding and caring for leadership within the church. He has served as a church planter, lead pastor, and District Superintendent within the EFCA.  In his role at Cathedral Rock Church, he aims to foster spiritual health and growth among staff, elders, and leaders within the church.

Justin Lee

Worship Pastor

Justin seeks to create intimate moments through worship where people can encounter the Living God in a powerful and transformative way. He and his wife, Mandy, have two amazing kids who keep them young while making them feel old.

Benji Leverentz

Director of Family Ministries

Benji has a desire to see families and marriages thrive in their pursuit of Jesus and prays that He can be used by God to help our grandparents, parents, children, and youth encounter Jesus and grow in their love for Him.  Benji loves that his wife Abby and 6 kiddos are "all in" on the mission to see people come to know Jesus as their savior and to grow in their love for Him.

Mandy Lee

Director of Admin + Connections

Mandy enjoys connecting people with God and each other. God continues to grow her passion and vision for helping people find joy in serving. Mandy has picked up various responsibilities during her time on staff at CRC and she is always willing to offer help wherever it is needed. She considers it a blessing to work alongside her husband, Justin, as they navigate ministry together while raising their two kids.
