Director of Children’s Ministries
Debbie is a Colorado native. She and her family have been attending Aspen Ridge Church since they moved to Conifer in 2007. She has been highly involved in MOPS, AWANA and Children’s Ministry at Aspen Ridge for years. In 2014, she began working as the Assistant Director of Children’s Ministries, and transitioned to the director role beginning in 2017. She has been a Christian for her entire life and has a passion for teaching children biblical truths in a fun and interactive manner. Her goal is to help children gain a strong Christian foundation that will last throughout their lives. Debbie has been a CPR and First Aid instructor for over 20 years. She and her husband Adam also own a local business, and have two daughters.
Director of Small Groups
Eric joined the team as Director of Small Groups in January 2018. He has a fire for small groups at Aspen Ridge Church, in part, because they literally changed his life. Having spent some of his adolescence and adult life as a prodigal son, he has a particular passion for reaching the “happily lost” in his circle of influence. The study of theology and Christian apologetics is of particular interest to him as he works at the craft of evangelism. In addition to his ministry here, Eric also has a thriving private law practice. When he is not building small groups or representing the rights of clients, he spends his time being a loving husband to his wife Danielle and devoted father to his three boys. When he can find the time, he delights in fishing, hunting, hiking and camping in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
Director of Communications
Shelby joined the staff as the Director of Communications in March of 2013. She strives to communicate the identity and mission of the church to the community in a way that invites neighbors to encounter Christ. “We want to let our community know that we’re here…that we care…and that there’s nothing in life that is as important as knowing Christ.” Her background includes a Master’s program in Digital Media from the University of Denver and work for Lockheed Martin’s Space Systems Company as a producer and video editor, before taking a break from her career in order to raise a family. Shelby enjoys camping, music, good graphic design, homeschooling and spending time snowboarding with her husband, Nathan, and three children.
Paula joined the Aspen Ridge Church staff in May of 2013 as the Office Manager. She has a passion for helping people in an administrative capacity and making sure people feel welcomed and appreciated. “This is a job and a ministry all wrapped into one, and with the Lord’s help, I want to do the best that I can with both!” Paula has an extensive background in administrative secretarial work and management skills through the business world and most recently through our local school district. Paula, her husband, Danny and their two children joined our church family in 2013. As a family, they enjoy playing tennis, jeeping and watching movies. Paula and Danny met in Texas and have a secret (shhh!) passion for country/western dancing!
