Leadership Team

Our pastor, James Manuel, brings the Word of God to us weekly with great depth, and in a manner that is easily applicable to our lives. James graduated from Denver Seminary with master’s degrees in Philosophy of Religion and in Biblical Studies. James has been a part of GMCC since 2008 and has served as pastor since 2014. James’ wife, Emily, serves alongside her husband at GMCC and also has her master’s degree from Denver Seminary in Biblical Studies. James and Emily met at Denver Seminary, were married in 2015, and welcomed baby boy David into the world in 2018. They love the church and have a heart for discipling believers by deepening their knowledge of the Lord through His Word and seeing that knowledge change the way we love and serve, becoming more like Christ.

 TJ Hallett is our music leader at GMCC. With the help of his wife, Breanna, and the other members of the church band, he leads the congregation in singing praise to God using both traditional and contemporary styles of music. He is passionate about the Psalms, and enjoys setting them to familiar hymn tunes for Sunday worship. TJ and Breanna met while singing in choir at Colorado Christian University, and got married in 2014. In 2016 they welcomed their new baby, Jane, into their family. They have been members at GMCC since 2012, and have enjoyed serving and worshiping alongside their fellow believers.

Monte French is the newest member of the Green Mountain Christian Church staff. He will be serving as our Pastoral Ministry Intern as part of the Ministry Residency Program at Denver Seminary. Monte is currently a student at Denver Seminary, studying for a Master's degree in New Testament. He will work alongside Pastor James, contributing where needed, including filling the pulpit regularly.
