Mountain Springs Church Hires NextGen Pastor

Mountain Springs Announcement

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - Mountain Springs Church in Colorado Springs is excited as they bring on their new NextGen Pastor, Hector Lopez. Mountain Springs’ vision is to empower God’s people to change the world. They are on a mission to transform lives from the neighborhoods to the nations by the power of God’s love. Hector is passionate about empowering young people to change the world and will be a great fit for Mountain Springs Church.

Joshua Houston, Executive Search Recruiter shared, “Hector is a great guy with a really big heart for student ministry. He is engaging and personable which will help him quickly connect with the students at Mountain Springs. His experience in developing leaders and pushing students towards outreach will help make the name of Jesus known in the Colorado Springs community.”

Hector was born in San Jose, California. He was raised in the faith and felt the call to ministry at the age of 16 years old. He then attended Southwestern Assemblies of God University to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Bible and Theology. He and his wife, Bria, have been serving in youth ministry for over 10 years. Hector has been in vocational ministry for 3 years and is eager to continue pouring into the next generation.

Hector and Bria enjoy traveling, time with friends, and the occasional coffee shop. They are eager to be surrounded by the stunning mountain views in Colorado and explore the city. They both have a desire to see youth and young adults step into the culture around them and are passionate about others having the opportunity to know the true love of Jesus. We are honored to have partnered alongside Mountain Springs on this search and are excited to watch Hector excel as he steps into his new role.
