Eric Cartier – Senior Pastor

I realized at a young age that the Lord was calling me to reach those without Christ. Through teachings at Applegate Christian Fellowship and Calvary Bible College, God began to equip me for a life of ministry. In March 2000, I accepted a permanent position with Rocky Mountain Calvary that grew into overseeing and ministering to both teenagers and young adults. After five years of service, I was offered the position of senior pastor. I believe the Lord’s house should be one of prayer and that the Bible should be taught verse-by-verse. This allows God’s word to challenge and encourage us to walk in obedience. My desire is to lead by example, to be a disciple and make disciples, and to share God’s loving kindness. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Amber, for 20+ years and we have four children, Hannah, Adelyn, Ileanne and Wyatt.

Rich Baley – Pastoral Care and Counseling (ext. 4727)

 I was saved later in life and received the call to ministry in my mid-30s. I have been pastoring for about thirty years. It was an absolute joy to be a part of what the Lord is doing in Ellicott. Simply put – a blessing. As I enter a new season of life I continue to look forward, with great expectation, to counseling couples preparing for marriage or helping folks through the rough patches of life. John 10:10

I have attended Rocky Mountain Calvary since late 1997.  I have witnessed the Lord doing many great things in my life and in this fellowship through His abundant grace. My ongoing desire is to see God’s people know and rely on His love for us; to grow continuously in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to reach full maturity in Christ Jesus and to walk in the good works which God has prepared beforehand for us.  My wife, Terri, and I have been married 41+ years.  We have four adult children and three amazing grandchildren.

Matt Patterson – Pastoral Care and Counseling / IT Director (ext. 4719)

I felt a call on my life for ministry while in college.  After finishing my degree in Behavioral Science, I went into student development work, construction work, and then on to computers.  About 10 years after my initial calling, God called me to serve full time at Rocky Mountain Calvary.  For those who might think “What the heck is God doing with my life?”, be patient.  He’ll use all of what you are going through for His divine purpose!  Oh yeah, and I LOVE my awesome wife, Brandi, and 3 beautiful kids, Elli, Ryan, and Molly.  I treasure God’s blessing of family.

Mike Brollier – Pastoral Care and Men’s Ministry (ext. 4723)

I have been attending Rocky Mountain Calvary since January 2010, serving three years in the high school ministry before moving into our men’s ministry. I graduated from our School of Discipleship in 2003, and from our School of Ministry in 2004. God is graciously using me to walk side by side with men so they can lead their families with the love that is exemplified by Jesus’ love for His church. I have been married to my wife Susanne for 33+ years, we have 6 adult children and 8 grandchildren.

Jesus laid down His life to save mine; I am humbled and grateful that in His great love He has chosen to adopt me (Ephesians 1:4-5).

I am excited to see how He will continue to use my gifts and talents for His glory.

I also oversee and leader the Young Adults ministry here at RMC. It is my greatest desire to help people find the joy of a life committed to serving Jesus and reaching their neighbors and the nations with the good news of peace with God through His son Jesus!

Kellyn Waters – Missions Coordinator (ext. 4726)

In 2016, God called me to Birmingham, England where I worked for an outreach theatre company that wrote and performed faith-based shows for schools and churches all over the UK. It was then that I realized I really loved telling others all over the world about Jesus. In 2018, I was called back home to Colorado Springs and started attending RMC, where I met my husband Matt. I began working in the Children’s Ministry in 2019 and switched to the Missions department in July of 2021. I am so excited to get to work in both local and international missions again!

Tyler Kettner – Junior High Pastor (ext. 4710)

After 23 years of living to create my own glory and pretending I was a Christian, God took hold of my life, replaced my heart of stone (Ezekiel 36:26-27), and showed me that I could not do it on my own. He is the only thing worth living for and I am so thankful He continuously pursues my heart, even in defiance.  While going through RMC’s School of Discipleship and School of Ministry, God placed it on my heart to seek and serve His people through any way He leads. It is my hope and prayer that I will continue to serve any way God desires alongside my wife, Naomi, and son, Malachi.

Tim Balagat – Senior High Pastor (ext. 4711)

I attended RMC’s School of Discipleship and School of Ministry. I started serving in the Junior High as a leader in 2010 and transitioned to the Senior High as of August 2021. The senior high years are crucial in a young person’s life, and I understand that we need to keep them on the narrow path walking with Jesus.  I am committed to building their faith and helping them to depend on the Word of God in this most important time in their lives.

Joshua Sieczkowski – Ellicott Campus Pastor (ext. 4729)

The Lord revealed His great love for me in my early 20’s, seeking me out in my lost condition, and calling me to repentance and belief in the finished work of Jesus Christ. He faithfully continues the process of sanctification in my life daily. It is an honor and privilege to share the love of God with the body of Christ and the lost in such a time as this. I serve alongside the blessing of my wife Jessi and our two children, Braydon and Megan. It is my earnest desire for God’s glory to be magnified in me and my family as we submit to the truth and direction of God’s Word over every facet of our lives.

Jenna Crenshaw – Women of Calvary Director (ext. 4722)

Connection within community through Christ.  Upon moving to Colorado in February 2017, the Lord captured my attention with this vision and has filled my heart to overflowing for the Women of Calvary.  Together with my husband, Rob, our daughter, Monterey, and my mom, Mary Kay, our family finds great joy in attending and serving at RMC.  May God continue to use the testimony He is working out in our lives to minister as we are called.  “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.”

God has truly blessed me to be able to work alongside our Children’s Ministry team. I am encouraged and blessed when I see families bring their children to church. I love to see them come to church with such enthusiasm to learn about Jesus. I want them to know the One True Living God who created the world, performed miracles, to learn about Jesus and to know how much He loves them. It is a joy and honor to serve in the Preschool Department. My husband and I have been married for 31 years. We have been blessed with 6 adult children and 2 sweet granddaughters.

Billy Dimirra – Worship Pastor (ext. 4702)

For most of my life my family has been really involved in Church and serving the Lord, but it wasn’t until I was in High School that God became real to me. I was blessed to have a support group around me who loved and cared for me enough to make sure my life was changed. After getting saved, I attended Oceans Edge School of Worship in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and graduated in 2011. Since then I’ve been involved with a couple different churches leading worship in various capacities. I’m grateful and humbled at the opportunity the Lord has provided for my wife, Laura, and I to move to Colorado and be a part of what God is doing here at RMC.

Dan Champion – Technical Director (ext. 4703)

God has moved in amazing ways in my life to capture my heart, and it is my desire to see others realize the necessity of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I love having the opportunity to serve in His ministry with the gifts He has given me. I started attending RMC in early 2013, and I love the Christ-centered atmosphere and small church feel. There has always been a tugging on my heart to serve, so I began volunteering in the fall of 2013 with the Audio/Visual Team and was then brought on staff in the spring of 2014.

Donnie Stockman – Facilities Manager (ext. 4706)

I have been the facilities and grounds manager of RMC since December 1998. I am responsible for overseeing building maintenance and special events setup.

After 18 years of turning my back on God, I re-dedicated my life to the Lord January 4th of 1999 at Rocky Mountain Calvary. I’ve been blessed to be on staff since September of 2002. I’m thankful for the multiple tasks included in my ministry and the opportunities to encourage and pray with people that come here.

Michele Davis – Controller (ext. 4739)

I was raised in a very religious home but did not meet Jesus until I was 18. Once introduced, I accepted His free gift of salvation and my life was dramatically transformed. Our family has been part of the RMC family since 2001. I started working at RMC in 2003 after having volunteered in the Café and Bookstore. My husband and I have been married for 33+ years; we have two adult children and four grandchildren. I am a 2004 graduate of Regis University with a Master of Business Administration Degree. It is such a privilege to serve at Rocky Mountain Calvary.

Jeannette Hernandez – Accounting (ext. 4736)

I started attending Rocky Mountain Calvary in 1996 and came on staff in 1997. It has been quite a journey! It has been amazing to see all that God has done through the years. I started as receptionist, then moved to accounting, then on to pastoral assistant for 12 years, and I have moved back to the accounting department. It is a blessing and true joy to serve the Lord through the Accounting Department. My husband Hernando and I have been married for 7 years and are blessed to be part of this fellowship.

Ginnell Poswalk – Volunteer Coordinator (ext. 4737)

Brad Leppla – IT/Network Administrator (ext. 4738)

I was born in Southern California, attended college at the University of California, Berkeley and graduated with a B.S. in Forestry. I joined the U.S. Navy and served 18 years before I retired in 1998, including a combat tour in Iraq in 1991. It was during that evolution that God first came to me during a particularly dangerous mission and literally saved my life. I am truly blessed to work in the IT Department as Network Administrator, supporting and maintaining the network infrastructure of this amazing church.
