  • Josh and Liz Jans

    Youth Pastors

    Pastors Josh and Liz have been married since 2012. They have one son, Sawyer, and a dog named Chase. They have been pastoring the youth at Church at Briargate since 2013. They both have a passion for teenagers. This includes getting them on life-changing trips like Youth Camp and Mission Trips. Both Josh and Liz have been on multiple missions trips, including India, Moldova, Mexico, El Salvador, and Haiti. 

    Josh is a visionary - he sees the big picture and what can happen. Liz is detail driven - she tries to fit all the pieces together and lay out a plan. Josh and Liz both know that "teamwork makes the dreamwork," meaning it takes a team to get things done. They value their leadership team for all that they do. Together with their amazing team, they work hard to see students come to know Jesus in Colorado Springs. Their goal is to create community and a family atmosphere among the students of The Movement, being a safe place for students to belong and be open. When students are on fire for God, it will overflow out of their lives, compelling them to share their faith story with their friends.

  • Mary and Anthony Schulte

    Children's Pastors

    Pastor Mary and Anthony joined Church at Briargate as Children's Pastors in June 2014. They have a passion to teach children about Jesus and train them to be the leaders and disciples that God has called them to be. They believe what the Bible says is true and hold to Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it."

    They called the kids ministry Kids Rock because they felt that what they are called to do is to teach the kids to make the foundation of their life Jesus. No matter what comes in life, that if they are grounded on Jesus they will not fall. Matthew 7:25 is the verse that confirms this.

    They love working with kids and having fun with them. Anthony is an amazing balloon artist and has been training others to help with outreaches. They enjoy going to the kids' concerts, sporting events and whatever the kids are involved in. They believe that investing in kids lives is the best investment you could ever make.

  • Allison Blevins

    Administrative Assistant

    Allison joined the Church at Briargate team as the Administrative Assistant in August 2018. She and her husband, Sam, and their two young daughters relocated to Colorado from Kentucky in the summer of 2018. Allison is a Kentucky native and Sam is a Colorado native. They met at Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, and were married in 2012. Allison received her bachelor's degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Intercultural Studies. Allison is also a Licensed Minister with the Assemblies of God.

    Allison's vision is to empower and equip people to share the love of Jesus with all they encounter and stand against the attacks of the devil. Real change begins with the power of Jesus! Allison's prayer is that God will stir a passion in the hearts of people in and outside of the church to be everything He calls them to be for such a time as this!
