Loren Richardson Jr.

In the summer of 2017, Loren felt a stirring to create something new. He wasn’t sure what it was, or what it would look like, but he felt God was pushing him to do something fresh. Another motivating factor was his two children, a daughter, and son, for whom he wanted an inclusive, welcoming faith community for them to be a part of as they grew. Seeking to create a welcoming faith community, with a modern worship style within a progressive understanding of Christianity, Loren began working with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a Christian network of church in the United States and Missiongathering Movement, a church planting movement within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to bring Missiongathering Christian Church Thornton to fruition.
With the help of Rich McCullen, Lead Visionary of the Missiongathering Movement, and Joan-Bell Haynes, Regional Minister of the Central Rocky Mountain Region Disciples of Christ, Loren is excited to bring the welcoming, inclusive message of God’s love and acceptance to the Thornton area of the northeast Denver Metro and Loren is passionate about sharing the good news that in Jesus, God’s love is revealed to all people and that in following the way of Jesus, we find a life of ultimate meaning and purpose. Along with his wife, Corinna, and children, Lexi and Jaxson, Loren is proud to call the community of Thornton his home also.
