Before becoming the Lead Pastor of Valley, Craig was the Family Pastor at Valley for three years.
The decade before, God used him in youth and family ministry, as well as camping ministry, in the great state of Washington.
Craig loves to teach deep truths about God in ways that are understandable, life changing and sometimes funny. He is also passionate about encouraging Jesus-followers to invest in the lives of friends and neighbors here in BV and around the world…not to make a point, but to make a difference.
Craig met his wife Diana in third grade and they were great friends growing up. God has blessed Craig and Diana with two girls, Mia and Lynn, and two boys, Cody and Jace.
Craig enjoys outdoor pursuits of all kinds, but backcountry skiing is his favorite. Craig loves God, Diana, his family, the Church, and wilderness – in that order.
Jase has served in a variety of roles in churches in both Colorado and his native Texas. He joined the Valley Fellowship staff in June, 2017 as Associate Pastor and leads the church in the areas of missions and adult education.
He attended Howard Payne University and left there with both his degree in philosophy and his wife, Tabitha, whom he met while playing roller-hockey. He then earned a Masters of Arts in Christian Studies from Denver Seminary.
Both Jase and Tabitha love the outdoors where they can be found fishing (Tabitha usually catches more), hiking, or exploring the Jeep trails. In addition, Jase loves mountain biking and skiing with his children (though he has to work hard to keep up with them).
Jase has travelled to five continents serving on short-term mission projects and loves seeing people grow as followers of Jesus from these experiences. In addition he loves teaching the Bible and developing leaders who love to serve Christ.
