The elders at Front Range are integral to the spiritual direction and health of the church. They partner with the lead pastor in establishing and maintaining the vision and direction of the church. They help create a positive spiritual climate within the church body. In addition, they act as a governing body to help the pastoral team in making decisions that are important to the life of the church. We are blessed to have some incredible elders to help lead our church. Meet the elders below!
