We’re excited to announce that we have filled the new Serving Director position here at Summit Church!

Tanner Church is from Farmington, New Mexico and grew up coming to Durango almost every weekend to mountain bike and ski. He is a die-hard Broncos fan and is so excited to be back in Colorado. He did two years of music school at Fort Lewis and interned at Summit Church back in 2014. Tanner then went to Hillsong Bible College in Sydney Australia where he met his wife, Sarah. Sarah is from Lawton, Oklahoma and interned at her home Church in the worship department. Sarah and her whole family are HUGE University of Oklahoma fans, but she is learning to be a Broncos fan as well. Sarah loves all things creativity and went to Hillsong Bible College to study worship. Sarah was a full-time worship pastor from 2018 to 2020 but is now staying home with the kids and loving this season of her life.

Reece (4) loves anything that has to do with tigers or lions, and he may introduce himself to you by saying his name is Simba and growling at you. Bek (2) is a tornado of fun and has a deep love for throwing everything she can find into the trash can, including phones. They love Jesus and His church and are so excited for this next season!

Tanner will be joining our staff in mid-June and we can’t wait for him to share his gifts here at Summit again. Tanner’s primary responsibilities will be working closely with the Summit staff to develop and implement a serving structure that will allow ministry to be given to the local body at all leadership levels, providing opportunities for leadership development for the church community, and overseeing our Guest Services/Hospitality Ministry here at Summit. Tanner will also be part of our Teaching Team and will preach at the weekend services multiple times per year.
