Pastor Gordon MacPhail
Pastor Gordon married Mary Elisabeth and moved to Ouray to join Ouray Christian Fellowship in July of 2012. He is committed to faithful ministry in helping others pursue God in His Word. Part of helping the church to make space in their lives to seek God out involves teaching, preaching, casting vision and participating in the community. Mary Elisabeth manages a local store (The Gator Emporium), and both can be seen playing frisbee with the youth on Sundays, going jeeping and on hiking trips with the church and training at the Rec Center. Pastor Gordon loves classical music, classic literature, poetry, creative writing, woodworking, shooting, personal training, and, above all, Scripture and worship. He and his wife both eagerly look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the family of Ouray Christian Fellowship!
Our Elders exist to equip, guard and nourish the church by modeling godly living, teaching and discipling.

Elder Rick Colpitts and family moved to Ouray in 2012 after a 26-year military career. He continues to work with the military in his current career which he considers an extension of his time in service. Rick and wife Tara have three daughters whom all attend Ouray school. Tara works as a CPA with a local accounting and tax firm. Rick enjoys almost anything that is physically or mentally challenging even if it means lack of success in the attempt. Rick, Tara and family have attended and belonged to many churches during their military assignments and are blessed to make Ouray Christian Fellowship their permanent church.
Mary Cockle is the friendly face that greets you at the church whenever you stop by. She consistently offers tireless service to the church body in a number of critical and behind-the-scenes ways. She fields phone calls, provides information about community and church activities and goings-on, as well as assisting with virtually every church event – be it LunchBunch, or cleaning the church, or local outreach activities. Mary and her husband Carl are native to Ouray and love the mountains – particularly hiking and jeeping in the summer and fall, and outdoor activities in the winter, which Mary does on every Friday or Saturday she can with available ladies from the church.
Barb Wade oversees our finances. She brings her cheerful personality to all different aspects of our church ministry.
