Our New Pastor
My name is Luke Miedema and I am the new pastor of Grace Church of the Roaring Fork Valley. My wife, Janet, and I have four children: Hudson (9), Sammy (5), Annie (3), and Liza (6 months).
Like many of you, we were drawn to this valley by its beauty and activities. We love skiing, cycling, running, hiking, snowshoeing, and any pretty much any other way to play in the mountains. (If you would like to know a little more about my background and interests, check out this brief bio).
But as much as I like the outdoors, what I truly love is the life-changing, hope-filled Gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe God is active in the world, extending His Grace and building His Kingdom through his Son Jesus. I love being a part of God’s Church and the unique role of being her pastor—having front row seats to witness God’s work in people’s lives and entire communities.
This is the real reason we were drawn to the Roaring Fork Valley. We want to continue to lead Grace Church into a source of hope and love for this Valley. We want to be a hospitable place for those exploring the claims of Christianity as well as a place Christians can come to be nourished and strengthened in faith.
We would love for you to come visit anytime. We meet every Sunday at 9:30am.
And if you are interested meeting for coffee, lunch, or better yet, a bike ride (!), email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to meet you soon!
