About Our Leadership

The leadership of NDC consists of three main groups: pastoral staff, associate staff, and core lay leaders (elders and stewardship team). Our pastoral staff is currently made up of two pastors who work collaboratively with our lead pastor, Norton Herbst, who directs our elders and staff team. In addition, all of our staff are bi-vocational. Each of them works part-time at New Denver Church and part-time in other nonchurch-related jobs in Denver. We believe this works better financially for the church and allows staff members to pursue vocational and missional opportunities outside the walls of the church.
