Elder Board

John Archibald

Elder/ Men's Ministry Director

John Archibald was raised in a family that is precious and unique, a huge influence on what made him the man he is today. He accepted Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior on Easter of 1982, and it has been quite a journey since then. Daily, God is improving his life by making him a better man, father, husband, and friend.

John Godwin

Elder/ Men's Ministry Leader/ Audio Supervisor

John grew up in Colorado Springs and his early church experience was being sent on a church bus to attend services at Circle Drive Baptist Church. He and his friends often skipped out and went to the nearby bowling alley, though. It wasn’t until he was an adult that he fully gave his life to the Lord and began his walk with Jesus.
