Our Staff

Littleton Christian Church is mutually submitted to the Evangelical Presbyterian Church denomination, particularly our region, called the "Presbytery of the West."  We are an elder-led church, with congregation-elected elders who serve 3-year terms and meet monthly to pray, discuss, and care for the congregation.  The church exists to celebrate and apply the gospel of Jesus Christ as we love God, love each other, and love the world.  The Elders exist to ensure the appropriate advancement of this mission as shepherds of the flock God has entrusted to us.  The staff exists to facilitate Gospel application and celebration in the church and implement opportunities for the church to grow in love of God, each other, and the world.

Rev. Mike Wright - Pastor


When I first came to this church as an awkward 15-year-old, I could never have dreamed what God had in store, that I would have the privilege of joining the staff 7 years later and the joy of serving here ever since. This group of people confirms my belief that Jesus established and built the Church to represent his rule and his love to the world. Joy piled upon joy for me when Erin became my wife in 2010, and as our family continues to grow among this great church family.

This church has become an extended family for me over the years, and I love to see my family grow in all sorts of ways.  I love this family’s extended family - the EPC and the Body of Christ in Littleton.  



Stephen Newhall - Director of Operations


Wanting to stay near the familiar during my college years I found myself at Taylor University, where I graduated with a degree in Biblical Literature. Following graduation I felt a change of scenery was in the cards, and moved to Littleton for Denver Seminary. It was one of the best decisions of my life, and I am so blessed to have been able to receive my MDiv from such a special place.

I love this city. Since moving to Colorado in 2014 I have only called Littleton home, and I certainly don’t anticipate that will change anytime soon. Truly, it is an amazing community in which to live, play and work, but nothing compares to the deep joy I feel from spiritually investing in this place. I believe LCC has been, is, and will continue to be significant proponent of health in our city, and I am amazed that I have been welcomed into that process.

Kelly Haanen - Director of Children & Family Ministries



It is a privilege to serve as the Children's Director at Littleton Christian Church! I love being a part of this body of believers. The kids and families of this church are a gift to me. I have a passion for partnering with families to see young hearts and minds grow to love Jesus. 

In my days before kids, I studied education at Valparaiso University where I met and married an amazing man of God. After graduating my husband and I spent a year studying and serving in Ecuador. We moved to Colorado (cause apparently that's what everybody does) in 2006. I taught Spanish for a few years before joining the staff at Littleton Christian.

My husband Jeff and I live just down the road in Littleton. God has gifted us with four beautiful daughters, Sierra, Lily, Alice and Cora. We love learning and growing and exploring God's beautiful world together.
