"...to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ." ~ Ephesians 4:12
Pastor Glenn gilpin
Pastor Glenn was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming and has spent most his life in the Rocky Mountain region. He was raised in a Christ-centered and Bible-believing home, where he came to know Jesus as his Savior and Lord as a child. Since that time he has had a great love for God’s Word — the Bible. His life objective is to know God’s Word and teach its truths to others.
Pastor Glenn attended the University of Wyoming, receiving a B.S. degree in Mathematics. While there he was involved with Campus Ventures, a campus disciple-making organization where he learned more about how to walk with God and a still-greater love for the Bible. He later attended Denver Seminary where he was granted an MA in Systematic Theology.
He has been happily married to Cathy since 1982, and they have a daughter Amber. He has been in full-time ministry for 32 years — a pastor for 29 of those. Before coming to Village he served small churches in Wyoming and Southern Colorado. He has spent time on staff with Campus Ventures student ministry and parts of five summers in short-term missions. In addition, he has worked as a surveyor and mechanical draftsman.
Worship leader karre ann wakefield
Passionate, energetic and inspiring are three words you might use to describe Karre Ann Wakefield in a nutshell. For over 25 years Karre Ann has been sought after as a dynamic motivational speaker, singer/songwriter and most recently life coach. Her heart’s desire has always been to help others navigate their “next steps” in life and particularly as it relates to people’s closest relationships.
Currently, Karre Ann is a worship leader, learning coach and has launched a part-time coaching practice (WiReD-by-GOD). She has been married to her high school sweetheart for over 27 years, and has 3 children (Bre, Grant, and Faith). When she’s not functioning in one or more of these demanding roles you might find her at the bowling alley, worshiping at the piano, or strategizing how to squeeze one more ounce out of life in the 24 hours God gave her.
revive Youth leader tony Mazzurco
Tony attended Westwood College where he received his AAS in architectural design, his BS in Business Management and an MBA. During the week he is the senior project manager for a construction specialties company. For the past 17 years Tony has attended and served at Village Church. While he does serve on the worship team Sunday mornings, his true calling and passion is for the youth. He has had the opportunity to pastor Revive starting in 2017, and for 2 years prior, he was the assistant pastor. To him Revive is a safe place for students to learn about God and realize that it can be cool and fun to follow Christ.
REVIVE WORSHIP LEADER ADAM SPEAR
Adam was born in Houston, Texas. When he was three, his family moved to Thornton, Colorado. Music is the center of his life. He spends his free time playing guitar and making music (or playing volleyball). About four and a half years ago he developed a heart for worship and knew he wanted to do more for God. Revive has been the perfect opportunity to do just that. Since 2015, Adam has had the opportunity to lead youth into powerful and heartfelt moments of worship where they can allow the spirit to move them into a deeper and closer moment with God. The worship band consists of him and several youth where Adam has a chance to teach and lead them to become servants for God through their musical talents and minister to the rest of Revive. Revive’s focus is to grow a family based group of believers dedicated to growing closer to God through fellowship, worship, and teaching. When Adam is not working with the Revive ministry, he works delivering jobs for a printing service at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus.
