Joel Wood

Lead Pastor

I have the privilege to serve as the Lead Pastor at Lighthouse. It is my calling and passion to lead and serve the people of our community, showing them the life changing love of Jesus. I am honored to serve with an incredible team of people who share a passion for others and believe God is doing big things at Lighthouse.

I am blessed to be married Ashley and together we parent Jackson, Jonah, James, and Juliet. We are always in search of the next adventure to go on together. I enjoy reading, music, running, cycling, and a good cup of coffee but I most enjoy connecting with people and living out community with those around me.

I joined the Lighthouse Team in March of 2015 as the Associate Pastor. My wife, Teegan,  and I have 4 amazing kiddos Jayden, Noah, Cameron, and Liam. They love to serve, and love being kids.

I am also blessed to lead the church in worship along side an incredibly talented team. I believe in the value of investing in others and building authentic community, I believe we truly have the ability to be Jesus to all who seeks him. In my down time I enjoy spending time with my family adventuring around our beautiful state. I also enjoy a good cup of coffee, cycling, and a great book!  I’m so thankful and honored to serve God and his people and look forward to connecting with you!

Carolyn Ritchie

Children's Ministry Director

I have had the honor of serving at Lighthouse for the last six years and have been blessed to work with an amazing group of believers who are on fire for Christ. God has given me the privilege of coming alongside the wonderful teachers to assist in the development and spiritual growth of the children at Lighthouse. I have a strong desire to help generate enthusiasm and zeal for Jesus in the hearts and minds of the children. Additionally, I strongly believe in encouraging parents to take what the children have learned in church and exemplify how it can be applied in their lives.

I have two amazing children of my own, who keep me busy and have given me a new lens to witness the pursuit God has on our hearts so early in life. My passion for ministry is not only for other children, but now serves to equip my own children to further God’s Kingdom. As a family, we enjoy taking nature walks and exploring Colorado. I personally cherish the fun family memories of everyday life followed by a nice long nap in which mommy can have some God time!

Tori Taggart

Creative Director

I have been a part of the Lighthouse for almost 8 years and I am honored to serve in a community of authentic Jesus-loving people. I am married to an amazing musician Chris and have two daughters, Londyn (12) and Finley (10) whom keep us extremely busy with gymnastics and basketball.  We love spending time together doing all things outdoors in our beautiful state.  I look forward to meeting you!
I believe that at church, the way in which we experience God and relationship with others is important and is affected by the environment that we are in. It matters how you feel, the colors you see, the ambiance around you.  Art helps us to think, challenge ourselves, ponder life’s hardest questions and appreciate beauty.  As the creative director at Lighthouse Church, I have desire to see more people experience the fullness of God and his glories.  Through the use of art, I am excited to help bring more life to sermon themes, bring positive change to the church environment and provide modern and relevant art to appreciate and interact with.
