  • David Barker - Pastor

    David was raised in the Presbyterian church and left as soon as he could. Years of taking wrong turns followed, not to mention 15 years as a professor of communication. But the prodigal returned, having experienced in his own life that Jesus Christ is the best hope for a broken world. David served a congregation in Texas before coming to Central and life in the Rockies. He has degrees from the University of Texas and Austin Seminary; he loves the mountains, reading, music, and—as proof we live by faith and not by sight—the Chicago Cubs. He’s married to wife Terry and has two children.


  • Lee Smoot - Director of Music & Relational Ministry

    Lee was born and raised in North Carolina but has called Colorado home for many years. She enjoys music of many styles, but her favorite is Broadway musicals! Lee and her husband Greg enjoy their daughter Madeline and all that college life has to offer!


  • Tricia Fixmer - Director of Children & Youth Ministry 

    Tricia is a child of CENTRALongmont, having been born, baptized, and grown up in this family of faith.  She has an undergraduate degree in speech communication from Colorado State University and a masters degree in education from Regis University.  For the last 13 years she has been a teacher in the St. Vrain Valley School District; she currently teaches 3rd grade at Hygiene Elementary. 


  • Brad Culp - Treasurer

    Brad grew up in Utah and Virginia, but Northern Colorado has been his home for the past 40 years.  He retired after a 34-year career as a product development engineer for Hewlett Packard.  Brad served 20 years as church treasurer at Family of Christ in Greeley, CO.  He currently serves as Treasurer of both our denomination's local Presbytery and regional Synod.  Brad moved to Longmont and joined CENTRALongmont upon marrying his wife Anne.  Brad enjoys the outdoors through sightseeing, hiking, biking, and snowshoeing.  He stays busy furthering his education as a CSU Global student.  


  • Jennifer Haratsaris - Director of Mission & Outreach

    Jennifer grew up in a variety of Midwest communities in Illinois and Iowa but has called Colorado home for the last twenty-two years.  She has worked in various roles for several software organizations but found her job as "mom" to her three boys to be the most rewarding.  Jennifer’s past service to CENTRALongmont primarily focused on children and youth, but she looks forward to partnering with the congregation to further our purpose "to bless our community.”  Jennifer enjoys hiking, skiing, reading, spending with her husband Philip, and cheering their boys at soccer, basketball, band concerts, and numerous other events. 


  • Laura McGee - Office Administrator

    Laura grew up in Ohio and came to Colorado in 1980. She has lived all over Boulder County, moving eventually to Longmont in 2013 with her identical twin sister. She has two adult children, and three grandchildren who are the joy of her life. Laura has many years of experience in administrative support, and a general willingness to find a way to accomplish whatever needs to be done. She enjoys hiking with her big brown dog, camping, reading and cooking, and is a huge fan of all things Disney.
