Sammy loves Students!! He loves to see them meet Jesus for the first time, he loves to see them grow deeper in their relationship with them, and also loves to see them develop from 6th graders who are nervous to be without their parents to 12th graders who are confident in their relationship with Jesus Christ, ready to tackle the world in His name. A born and raised Benician, Sammy is surrounded by family in town, including his awesome wife and sweet daughters (and a few pets for flavor).
Light! Video! Sound! Matt's a cool creative dude who loves learning and mastering new skills. He has a larger than life dog named Skywalker who has his own instagram account.

Astrid loves some good dark chocolate and enjoys her free time with friends and family. She is passionate about leading people to the throne room of Jesus through worship. When she's not working you can find her enjoying time with her husband Kyle and their daughter Willow.
It's rare to see Gabriel on video because he is always the guy behind the scenes. Fluent in construction, he could build you a house but that is not his calling in life. He lives to serve God by building His kingdom through the lens of his camera. When he isn't filming, Gabriel enjoys lifting weights and exploring new places. His favorite person in the entire world is the love of his life, Grace.
Faith , Family and Fitness are the cornerstones of how Ron is built. He believes anything is possible with God, and the best is always yet to come. He's one of the few who look forward to working out, the tougher the workout the better. After all, he has to find some way to keep up with his four awesome girls and his beautiful wife, Tracy, of 17 years. Ron's a pretty laid back guy; shorts and flip flops are how he likes to roll. Coffee and sports…a couple of life's essentials. Go Broncos!
