Pastors & Staff

Nick Seders

Lead  Pastor

My wife (Kelly) and I brought our family to Greeley First in May 2019 (and felt at home from day one)! We enjoy creative endeavors like design and writing, as well as hikes with great views. Vivíamos en España durante más que 3 años, entonces podemos servirte en español también.

Shane McClanahan

Associate Pastor

Aubrey and I are excited to serve families in Greeley after 10 years of experience in children's ministry, back home in Pennsylvania. We have four small kids that wake up everyday looking for the next adventure, so we love to explore and get to know new people.

George Seders

Worship & Media Director

I have been serving GFA since 2017, and my wife (Suzanna) joined me here in Colorado after we got married in 2021. In our free time we like to search for new adventures to go on, watch feel-good movies, and hangout with friends. 

Coniah Grigson

Kids  Coordinator (K - 5th Grade)

My wife (Megan) and I have been married since 2010, and attending Greeley First since 2016! Together we have five beautiful girls. I serve by coordinating Kids Church, while Megan helps in the nursery.

Ashlee Kluth

Kids  Coordinator (Ages 0-5)

My husband (Peter) and I moved to Greeley in May 2018 and love our new community! Together we’re Chi Alpha missionaries at UNC, and have two great kids – Luca and Elodie. We enjoy being with friends & family, sharing meals or coffee, and playing board games!

Chris Burke

Office Manager

I’ve attended Greeley First for 40 years, and have loved serving as Office Manager for about 12 years. My amazing husband (Mark) and I have been married for 17 years, and together we have 6 children and 12 grandchildren. I love my family, camping, reading and doing crafts!

Kim Karlberg

Finance  Manager

I've been blessed to be with Greeley First for the past 7 years.  I own a small accounting practice, which has given me the freedom to be "home" and part of the "working" world. My husband (Tom) and I have been married for over 30 years and raised 3 children. We enjoyed raising kids, but grandparenting is even grander!

Nyle &  Alyssa Bernal

Youth Coordinators

My wife Alyssa and I have been married for 3 1/2 years and have a wonderful son named, Noah.
We both grew up in Greeley and enjoy serving our middle and high school students. We love spending time with family, friends, watching sports, and eating at wing shack!

Mel & Marcia Buxman

Prayer & Care Team Coordinators

I [Mel] was born and raised in Greeley, but attended Bible college in Missouri, where I met Marcia. After we married and I graduated, we returned to Greeley, making GFA our church home for eight years. In 1980 we moved to eastern Colorado where we raised our family, furthered our careers in agriculture and education, and stayed active in church ministries. We returned to Greeley in 2004, working in our chosen careers until retirement. We’re mostly homebodies, but we sure enjoy mountain get-aways and visiting our three children and six grandchildren around the country.

Cory Burough

Preschool Director

I have been with Sonshine preschool for ten years and I just adore working with young children. I have attended GFA since 1991 along with my husband Mark who is apart of the deacon team. I serve our church body through the worship team.
I would love to have your child /children be apart of our amazing preschool. I look forward to meeting you!
