Interim Pastor Tim Haugen and wife Ann
Pastor Tim and Ann began interim ministry at Mountain View in May of 2017. Tim grew up in Door County, Wisconsin, and Ann grew up in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. Tim has served in pastoral ministry for over thirty years as a youth pastor, teaching pastor, and lead pastor. Over the past decade, Tim and Ann have embraced a calling to help churches in need of some restoration. They have gone to churches that upon arrival were to one degree or another in some measure of decline, malaise, or even crisis. They have had opportunity to see the power and faithfulness of God expressed in restorative grace in these fellowships. Though Tim and Ann do not pretend to suppose they can fix or turn around a fellowship in and of themselves, they are confident in God and in His ability to work powerfully in and through His church. Tim’s ministry focuses on helping churches to recover a high view of God, and to refresh an awareness of the supremacy of Jesus. Tim orients ministry around the gospel of Jesus, the authority of God’s Word, emphasizing the practice of personal and corporate prayer, evaluating and implementing systems and structures conducive to church health, and proactively loving people both in the community of the church, and in the larger community outside the church. Three weeks following graduation from Bethel University in Arden Hills, MN, Tim and Ann were married in June of 1980. They have familiarity with Colorado in that Tim attended Denver Seminary, graduating with a Master of Divinity degree in 1983. Tim also did doctoral work at Gordon-Conwell Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. Tim and Ann have been blessed with three adult daughters, three sons-in-law, and seven grandchildren. Though both Tim and Ann like the Denver Broncos, Tim is an avid Green Bay Packer fan, and Ann is a Minnesota Viking fan (Tim is still desiring that she be delivered regarding this affliction!). Ann and Tim have been humbled by the warm welcome they have received at Mountain View. They are enthused about the privilege of serving in the Roaring Fork Valley during this interim at Mountain View between permanent lead pastors.

Administrative Assistant and Children’s Ministry Coordinator
I am excited to be coordinating the children’s ministry and working as the administrative assistant at Mountain View Church. The position of children’s ministry coordinator offers a wonderful opportunity for me to share my love of God and His teachings with children. I worked with the Mother of Preschool Program (MOPS) for 20 years and was involved with at-risk youth programs for 24 years. All my experience has helped me realize that every child of God is special, talented, and has immense potential. As administrative assistant, it is my privilege to serve as God leads.
