Check out this recording of one of Daniel’s offertory pieces, during a worship service on Churchy Symbols — Fish.

Daniel also made a CD of Christmas piano music. Here is a sample from that 2014 album.


Sara Sandstrom-Kobi serves as our Director of Childcare.


Sara has a degree in Church Education, and is ready to teach gospel stories about love, and children’s singing! She and her husband have two young kiddos, who are about as sweet as they come.




John Callahan makes the place shine as our Custodian.


“I spent 32 years directing non-profit corporations, serving people with developmental disabilities. My interests are sports, dogs and the great outdoors.”

[From the Pastor, “John is our resident expert on all things Cleveland Browns and Ohio State Buckeyes. Whenever I’m having a slow Monday, we can talk a little football, and the spiritual juices get flowing again!”]


Jim Reis is our Work Coordinator for the Rocky Mountain Mission program.

Jim has worked as a leader for teenage group homes, served with the US Army in Iraq, and currently runs a DJ business in and around the mountains.


Bailey Johnson is our Community Coordinator for Rocky Mountain Mission.

Bailey has lived in town for two years. Before that she went on a mission trip in Kenya, and then completed a Christian leadership course back home in Indiana, so that she could help young people have similar life changing experiences while helping their neighbors. She is full of energy, and you get to meet her at worship on 10 June, where she’ll be leading us in a song. Bailey says of herself…

“Snowboarding and connecting with people are two of my favorite things. Though I am young, I prefer hanging out in Nederland and staying around the mountains versus going down to Boulder or Denver. I enjoy skateboarding, basketball, pool, being outdoors, swimming, anything fun. I have 4 dogs and 4 siblings. Though the summer is here, I’m excited for snow! I’m super excited and thankful for this job opportunity. Can’t wait to see what the Lord does.”


Our Summer Homeless Advocate for Residential Encampments is Claudia Schauffler.

“I have worked in non-profit healthcare all of my career. I was a pediatric respiratory therapist at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for 15 years. I left pediatrics when I lost my daughter to Cystic Fibrosis. Shortly thereafter I moved to Colorado with my partner Mona. The healing power of the mountains and my work at People’s Clinic in Boulder has given me a new mission. Working with under-served and marginalized people has become a passion. I am grateful to be able to continue this work in my own community.”

The SHARE program connects our homeless neighbors to services down the hill (housing, job training, addiction recovery, mental health, etc), and helps educate folks how to camp more safely (campfires, wildlife, waste management, water purification, weather).

Our Director of Finances is Cindy Hauser.

Cindy has been a resident of the area for over 50 years, residing in Black Hawk. She has a degree in accounting, and has been employed in finance for over 35 years. She is currently working for Dillon Developers in Nederland, and is a member of the Nederland Food Pantry Board of Directors.
