Grace Brethren Church Welcomes New Pastor to Colorado Springs 


Colorado Springs, CO – Don Patten, and his wife Marta have recently been called to serve as the new pastor of Grace Brethren Church at 2975 Jet Wing Drive. His tenure begins on Sunday, November 6 with the worship service at 10:30am.  

After completing ministry school at Calvary Chapel in Santa Ana, CA, Pastor Don and his wife Marta began serving as international missionaries. For two decades they have started new churches and led church congregations in Ukraine, Israel, Nigeria, Hungary and China. Pastor Don can communicate in Russian and Spanish. 

“I look forward to being an integral part of the Colorado Springs community as Grace actively helps meet local needs, provide wholesome environments for families and invests in young people, helping them navigate their faith in the rapidly changing world around them,” says Pastor Don.  

Pastor Don is succeeding the church’s long-time pastor, Robert Schaffer, who retired last month after serving 22 years at Grace Brethren Church. The church has resided at the corner of Jet Wing Drive and Hancock Expressway since 1974. The church is also the home of Colorado Spring’s Slavic Bible Church  Baptist.  

Grace Brethren Church, a member of the Charis Fellowship of Churches, has been a part of the Colorado Springs area since 1972.

But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost. For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
1 Corinthians 16:8-9


"We stand at a critical moment in history for the church. The door of opportunity is wide open for us to share the gospel through a variety of methods. As believers, we are obligated to carry out Christ's Great Commission. Be careful that neither busyness nor apathy keeps you from obedience." (Excerpt from In Touch Magazine, Dr. Charles F. Stanley, President)
