God always had greater plans for Rocky than we could ever envision! In 1983, when the Ahlgrim family was invited by First Christian Church of Longmont (now Lifebridge) to launch a new church, Rocky Mountain was merely a vague dream. Alan and Linda moved with their three young children to launch a new church that would one day become a dynamic regional ministry. At first there was no plan, no name and no core group identified; but God did something that was both gratifying and awe inspiring.
With the blessing of First Christian and about 150 excited pioneers, Rocky Mountain Christian Church was launched in the auditorium of Niwot High School on April 1, 1984. Since that date, two large campuses have been developed and dedicated to Christ as a blessing to both Boulder County and Weld County. In 2012, Alan Ahlgrim passed the baton on to Shan Moyers as Lead Pastor.
Rocky has now launched eight strong partner churches that flourish both in Colorado and around the country. Numerous Christ-exalting ministry partnerships now exist around the world and several thousand people have been baptized into Christ right here!
We never want to forget the glorious miracles of the past that God has done in and through Rocky as we continue to believe that “the best is yet to be!”
