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.

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.

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.

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. 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

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 2013, came on staff in 2014, and met my wonderful wife Stephanie here.

It has been a great joy and blessing to see how God has and still continues to work through all the events we get to do here at RMC.

Gissel Calleros
Pastoral Care Assistant
(ext. 4713)

God got a hold of my life when my family and I moved to Colorado my freshman year of high school. In my junior year, the Lord softened my heart and gave me His eyes to see the people around me so that I could love them the way He does. After high school the Lord called me to the School of Discipleship, during which, He opened the door for me to work at RMC. I am blessed every day I get to be a part of the mission and ministry here at RMC.

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!

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.

Josiah Wuthier
Children’s Ministry Assistant
(ext. 4733)

I put my faith in Jesus at a young age, but still had plenty of mistakes, weakness and sin in my life growing up. I have been undeservingly used by God over the years as he has done and continues to do a sanctifying work in me. I was drawn to RMC because of the chapter by chapter, verse by verse teaching of the Bible late 2021, and came on staff September of 2022. I am God’s work in progress, and am so blessed to work in the children’s ministry here at RMC.

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.

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.

Ginnell Poswalk
Volunteer Coordinator
(ext. 4737)

I was raised in a Christian home knowing about Jesus but never really knowing Jesus.  My husband of 31+ years and I started attending RMC in 2003 where God really got ahold of my heart through the worship and thru the Bible teaching.  I came on staff in 2009 starting in the café where I worked for 6 1/2 years.  I then became the Bookstore Manager for 2 1/2 years.  When the Bookstore closed in 2018 I became the volunteer coordinator and finance assistant.  I love seeing how God is using the church through the volunteers to further his Kingdom.

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.
