Chris Mitchell

Pastor - Missions

Chris was born in New Orleans, LA and grew up mostly in Tulsa, OK. He attended the University of Oklahoma for college and medical school. He now works as a full-time general surgeon in town. Chris and Kelsey were married in 2009, moved to Fort Collins in 2013, and have 3 children: Eli, Ella, and Cooper. Life is full, often hectic, but abounding in joy! While Chris grew up in a Christian home, it was at MVCC where God stirred in him a passion for the local church and ministry. God has placed a burden on Chris’ and Kelsey’s heart for the nations, for those who don’t have access to the Gospel and who have never heard about the love of God. Chris is excited to help with missions at MVCC. In addition to his work and ministry, Chris enjoys being active, skiing, reading, and traveling.

Clark Richardson

PASTOR - Men's Ministry

Clark moved to Colorado in 2019 to serve in a full-time administrative leadership role with Crossway Network after 10 years as lead pastor of another Crossway Church in Illinois. He was born in Ohio, raised from age 5 in the Monterey Bay area and then returned to the Midwest for undergrad work at Wheaton College and graduate studies in New Testament Theology at Trinity Evangelical. In 1993 he married his best friend and faithful ministry partner, Tricia.

Along the way God blessed them with their 5 favorite people on earth – Jake, Kailin, Luke, Sam, and Grace. Jake (L.A.) and Kailin (Chicago) are on their own while Luke, Sam, and Grace are a big part of MVCC with them.

Clark enjoys music, hiking, family vacations with all 7, and the Chicago Bears even though they constantly challenge his faith! He leads the Men’s Ministry at Mountain View, loves to preach the Word, and enjoys shepherding and leading in the church with an amazing team of pastors.

Jacob Chacko

Pastor - LifeGroups

Jacob was born and raised in Northern Virginia, just outside Washington DC. He grew up in a strong Christian home and gave his life to Christ towards the end of elementary school. Jacob moved to the midwest after high school and attended Northwestern University in Chicago for college and medical school. It was during his third year of medical school that he met his wife Krista while playing ultimate frisbee with their church. They were married in 2011, while Jacob was in residency, and they remained in Chicago for the first five years of their marriage while Jacob finished his medical training. It was during their time in Chicago that both Jacob and Krista grew in their love for the church and ministry, and Jacob served on the pastor team at Park Community Church in Chicago until moving to Fort Collins. In 2016, the Chacko’s moved west after Jacob finished medical training, and Jacob now works full-time as a cardiologist in town. They have three kids, Joshua, Lily, and Elliott, who add so much joy and excitement to their lives. At Mountain View, Jacob’s primary area of shepherding as a pastor is within the LifeGroup ministry. Outside of work and ministry, Jacob and Krista enjoy hosting dinners, being outside, watching sports, and exploring all that Colorado has to offer.
