Chapel in the Hills – Pastoral Staff

At Chapel in the Hills, Christ is our Chief Shepherd and He has called under-shepherds to love, protect, guide, and care for His flock. We call the under-shepherds “Pastors/Elders.” Consistent with the Scriptures, the role of pastor/elder is to oversee the total spiritual welfare and implementation of the vision and goals of the church, the local body of Christ. They are responsible to shepherd the flock, lead through example, teach and exhort, refute those who contradict truth, manage the church of God, and pray. The pastors are responsible for determining the overall direction of the church.

Don Cross

don_crossPastor/Elder

Don is the second eldest of six children who grew up on a cattle ranch in the sandhills of Nebraska.  Don met his wife Sandy at Ball State University while in graduate school.  In 1966 they were married in Riverside, CA.  A year later they moved to Colorado and were employed by Jefferson County Schools.

In the spring of 1968 they purchased property in Coal Creek Canyon and moved into their home.  Their daughter, Kathy, was born in November 1969 and Sandy became a stay-at-home mom.  Eric was born in 1972, is single, and lives in the canyon.  Kathy lives in Greeley with her husband and their two children.

In 1970, they started attending a Bible church and within a few years both Don and Sandy had accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  Don was called into a leadership position on the church board a few years later and continued to serve in that capacity until they recognized God’s call to leave that church.

The Lord led them to Chapel in the Hills and they soon became involved in the ministry of the Chapel, which has now been their church home for nearly 30 years.  Don recognized God’s call to use his spiritual gifts, particularly in the areas of administration,
