    Steve Thulson

    Lead Pastor


    303-797-2344 xt 112

    I'm a third generation native of Denver where I met an amazing girl named Darlene in high school who then became my life partner in 1972. We have three children and seven grandkids -- all who live within a mile of us and belong to Centennial Covenant. I love to read, take long bike rides, play my beautiful Taylor guitar, and hang out with our wonderful family, including trying to beat 15 year old Jayden in one-on-one basketball (which rarely happens now!).  

     

    I graduated from Wheaton College near Chicago (with my Junior year at C.U. Boulder). With plans to teach theology or history at a college, I studied at Fuller Seminary in California (M.Div. degree). Despite a high school vow to do anything for God... except be a Pastor, I agreed to serve for a couple years on a Covenant Church staff in Salina, Kansas. That turned into 11 years (9 as Senior Pastor), and then a move in 1987 to pastor a two year old struggling church plant called Centennial Covenant. Along the way, I received a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller with a focus on Centennial's priority of letting a living Christ build his church in his way. I love this family of believers for it's shared desire to follow Jesus with honest struggles, dependent prayer, practical compassion and lots of laughter.


    David Dillon

    Pastor of Worship & Communications


    303-797-2344 ext 115

    I have the joy of guiding and participating alongside our many talented people and teams at CCC in areas of Worship and Communications. My heart is energized by helping people give and be their very best with how God has wired and gifted them. When I am not at church, I am likely to be found in similar artistic pursuits either making music, working on a drawing or painting, or tinkering in my wood-shop. Our family also enjoys spending time in the mountains where we love to hike, camp, and explore God’s beautiful world. Speaking of which, my wife, Heather and I have been married for 24 years, and we have 2 awesome boys who are 11 and 13.


    I graduated from the University of California, Long Beach with a B.A. in guitar performance. I received my M.Div. degree from Denver Seminary in 2001, and then completed a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from NorthPark Seminary in 2008. My journey with CCC began in 1993 when I began serving as a part-time worship leader. After completing seminary that role broadened in time and scope to full-time pastoral ministry.

    Karl Helvig

    Pastor of Young Adults & Students

    Hi, I’m Karl and I have the privilege of serving as Pastor to Young Adults and Students at CCC.  I grew up in the northwoods of Minnesota and consider myself blessed to have experienced “real” winter. 

     

    I have been married to Mikkin since 2006, and we have four children: Tobiah, Esther, and Naomi, and Asa. I received a B.A. in Classical Greek and Religion from St. Olaf College and a Masters in Biblical Studies from Denver Seminary.  After graduating seminary, my family served in China ministering to college students and providing member care for cross-cultural workers.  In 2012, I started at CCC and in 2015 I was ordained to Word and Sacrament in the Evangelical Covenant Church.  I count it an honor to serve this community and take joy in walking with students, parents, and young adults in their faith journeys.  There is nothing more sacred than being a part of God’s transforming work.  

     

    When I’m not at church, you can find me running longer and longer distances, teaching outdoor leadership courses at Denver Seminary and Colorado Christian, and showing my kids how to care for our backyard chickens.

    Sheila Robinson

    Pastor of Children


    303-797-2344 ext 113

    As the Children’s Pastor, I have the unique privilege of hanging out with some of the best kids on Planet Earth here at Centennial Covenant Church.  When I’m not at church, you can find me with my husband and best friend, or playing grandma with our beloved grandbaby. In my free time I enjoy reading, rooting for the Rockies, working out, and spending time with friends over coffee. 


    Born and raised in South Africa as a missionary kid, I am eternally grateful for my spiritual heritage.  After attending Trinity Int’l in Deerfield, Il, I received an MA at Western Seminary in Portland, OR, and served in California before moving to God’s Country of Colorado in 2000.   It has been a joy to serve with such an incredible team since coming on staff in October 2015.  

    Ron Mol

    Pastor of Care & Finance

    303-797-2344 ext 114

    I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and was blessed to be raised in a Christian family.  I received my Master of Divinity (MDiv) from Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary in 1986, while I was working as Pastor of Youth and Education in my home church.

     

    I have been married to my wonderful wife for 26 years, and God has blessed us with four children and one granddaughter.  We have attended Centennial Covenant Church for 18 years, and I have been on staff for 11.

     

    Lisa and I both learned about truth growing up, but we have learned about grace since being part of this fellowship!  While I feel I am rough around the edges, this church family keeps loving me anyway.

     

    In my free time I volunteer by teaching math at a Christian trade school called The Master’s Apprentice.  I also try to play pickleball a couple times per week.
