Denver grew up in Anderson, Indiana. He was a teenager running the streets when he was invited to church and met Jesus at age 16. Almost immediately after giving his heart to Jesus, he knew that God was calling him to the ministry. It took a few more years for that call to become reality. In 2001, he began a four year journey in which he transitioned from Youth Pastor to Interim Pastor to Senior Pastor. Over the last 15 years, Denver has served in three churches. He has been at his current church since Easter 2007.
He has been married to his wife, Marcia, since February 2003. Michiana Community Church is Marcia’s home church. Denver and Marcia have three boys: Benjamin, Caleb and Eli.
Denver enjoys wood carving, playing pool in his garage and teasing and horsing around with his boys. While he is passionate about preaching the Word of God, you will find that he also tries to be a comedian often tells jokes in his sermons. Usually he gets more groans than laughs.
Jean has been the secretary of Michiana Community Church since 1993. She has also served in many other areas in the church and has been a long time and dedicated member of the worship team.
Jean was married to her late husband, Tim, for 36 years. Tim and Jean have two children, Brandon and Amber. She has three grandchildren: Christopher, Adriana, and Charlie. Jean is the typical grandma. She would never cut out the center piece of a cake because her children requested it, but for her grandchildren…she’d cut two!
