Our Leaders

At Arvada Christian every involved person is a leader. A true leader is a servant of the people. Here are a few of the servants that lead us.

Preaching Minister: Joe Bertone

Joe is our preaching minister. He received his BA in Bible from Mid-Atlantic Christian University in Elizabeth City, North Carolina and has been in ministry since 1999. He has been married to Darcey for twenty plus years and together they have eight children (two adopted). Joe's messages are Biblical and relevant to everyday life. Away from Church Joe loves backpacking in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and can often be found tramping down some dusty path with several kids in tow. Joe is very approachable and loves to get to know new people. Come and meet him.

Worship Minister: Jim Simmons

Jim Simmons is band new to Arvada Christian. He steps into the role of Worship Minister. Jim is an incredible musician with 20 years experience in worship leading and music composition. Jim has two Master degrees in “Theology and Church Music” and “Music Composition.” He is currently finishing his Doctorate in music composition from ATLAS Fellowship. Jim is passionate in teaching music, writing music and leading others in the worship of God. He brings to Arvada Christian a heart for worship and boundless talents and skills. We are grateful to have Jim and want to invite you to come worship with us!

Elder: Tom Darnell
Elder Tom is everything you'd want from an Elder. He is kindhearted, loving, supremely concerned about people, learned in the Bible, spiritually mature and passionate about the Church. Tom has been at Arvada Christian since the 70's. He has a background as a salesman and small business owner. Get to know Tom, and his wife June, and you will be blessed.
