Missionary Support

Cheyenne Mountain Presbyterian Church has a heart for the community of believers on a local and global scale. We wanted to bring those relationships to our congregation in a tangible way. Here you will find a list of missionary families we support. You can read more about them and choose to donate to their ministries via the link provided. Know that sensitivity of information is imperative for these families and we have provided the specifics of their ministries to the best of our abilities, any specific questions can be asked to the individuals themselves. 

Thank you for choosing to make supporting these missionaries a part of your daily lives through prayer and monetary support. 

Norm and Sue Patterson

Our ministry focuses on reaching people in cities through their churches and neighborhoods. Evangelism and discipleship will remain our intentional ministry outreach. Building and helping families and marriages will be our strategy in message, mission, and ministry to God's glory! This is an unprecedented time in a world of invisible enemies, local terrorism, pluralism, gender and sexual confusion and outright distorted worldviews. We desire to reach leaders with the gospel of Jesus Christ, Who gives us hope, joy, and peace.

Reverend Del Ferris

A primary focus of my ministry as the State Capitol Minister is to meet and develop relationships with people who serve in Colorado state government. Through these relationships, I will: 1) encourage and support them by praying for and with them, 2) speak and teach the Word of God to them through conversation and Bible study, and 3) endeavor to win the right to share the gospel of Christ with those who do not know Him. Additionally, I will be reaching out to PCA churches in Colorado to promote and facilitate specific and intelligent prayer by the body of Christ for those serving in government.

Mel and Martha Pike

Martha’s gifts of helps and hospitality mesh well with Mel’s pastoral and teaching abilities. They accepted with great joy an invitation to bring their gifts to MTW’s church-planting team in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Martha’s first task is to learn Russian. She will assist Mel as he works with the pastor of Holy Trinity Church in Kiev to plant a church that reaches the international community and English-speaking Ukrainians in the city. Mel will also serve the Evangelical Reformed Seminary of Ukraine (ERSU) as a mentor offering counsel to students and modeling a pastor’s work in their professional and family lives. Martha will serve as well, offering the students a warm home and quiet atmosphere for talk and rest.

David and Dawn Diaso

The Diasos have served in missions for more than 25 years. They began church planting in Mexico City in 1990, one of the world's largest and neediest cities. Then they ministered out of Colorado Springs preparing and training missionaries. Now David and Dawn minister in the world’s largest bi-national city: the San Diego-Tijuana border.

Jeff and Jenn Kriesel

As a Christian ministry at USAFA, we strive to reach cadets with the good news of Jesus Christ, equip cadets to grow in their faith, and deploy cadets into the Air Force as servant leaders. RUF seeks to be a Christ-centered community that is honest, authentic, and real. We strive to know one another (the good and the bad), love one another (deeply and truly), and restore one another (graciously and boldly).

Milan and Zita Tacheci

In their home country, the Czech Republic, the Tachecis work to spread to the gospel of Christ and plant churches. Milan is a pastor in a local fellowship, and they lead Bible studies for both children and adults, and do a great deal of evangelism. Milan and Zita have two children, Daniel and Charis. They ask for prayer for perseverance, protection, provision, strength and guidance, and that the Lord would grant repentance to many bound in their sins.

Mike and Lauren Wenzler

RUF Christian fellowship is a place to explore Christianity and the radical declaration of God's love. RUF exists to show the love of Jesus to the CSU community. We seek to do this through pursuing Christ together, serving others out of Christ’s love and having fun. We invite you, no matter where you are on your journey, to RUF at Colorado State.

Ben and Julie Jensen

Ben and Julie are leading the university student ministry at Nisshin Christ Church where they seek to evangelize and disciple young people. Japanese are the most open to the gospel during college so reaching them at this life stage is strategic. The Jensens have a passion for befriending students, introducing them to the church, and inviting them into their home for Bible studies. Please pray for the Jensen family as they reach out to university students in Japan with the hope of the gospel.

Life Network

The mission of Life Network is to cultivate a community that values life through the love of Christ. We achieve this by presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ, providing life-affirming alternatives to abortion, promoting sexual integrity & healthy decisions, empowering parents to be healthy & hopeful, giving hope and healing to post-abortive, and engaging the community to advance life.

New Geneva Theological Seminary

Our purpose is to exemplify Christ in all of our work and relationships and to strive to walk blamelessly before God and men;to faithfully serve the Lord Jesus Christ and to uphold the inerrancy of God’s Word.

Western Church Planting Network

Western Church Planting Network

WCPN grew out of the experiences of a few different waves of PCA church planting efforts in the Rocky Mountain Region. Thirteen like-minded pastors and church planters had a vision to see a relational movement of church planting birthed around the beauty of the Gospel in western cities. Building upon lessons learned from earlier efforts, these 13 churches formed the WCPN in January 2010.

Rocky Mountain Presbytery

Rocky Mountain Presbytery

Faithful to the Scriptures, True to the Reformed Faith, and Obedient to the Great Commission. We believe the system of doctrine taught in the Bible is summarized well in the Westminster Confession of Faith with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. We hope to engage the culture with Reformed thinking and leadership, along with deeds of love, mercy, and justice to show the transformational power of the gospel.
