  • 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.

  • 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 two 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.

  • 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 high school life has to offer!

  • Donna Ferrey - Dir. of Mission & Outreach

    Donna is originally from Pennsylvania (think pretzels and cheesesteaks) and landed in Colorado 20 years ago with her husband Dave and their two daughters. She’s spent much of her adult life raising their children and wondering just what it is that God wants her to do, finally realizing that it’s the small things – attitude, relationships, and prayer – that are important in building the Kingdom (think missional). She likes reading, spending time with her family and laughing – she can find humor in almost anything.

  • Emma Carney - Director of Children & Youth Ministry

    Emma was born and raised in Longmont and says that she can't picture herself ever living anywhere else. She graduated from Longmont High in 2018, and while she was in school, played basketball and volleyball.  She has 3 sisters with whom she is quite close, two older and one younger.  She also sings in the Longmont Choral with one of her older sisters.  She grew up in CENTRALongmont and attends regularly with her mother and grandparents.   

  • 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.
