Our Team



Peak is led by Jesus the King.

The congregation makes the big decisions in the church. A group of people called a council are picked to work with the pastor and staff to help flesh things out.


Pastor Eddy Hopkins

“The best part of my work is listening to what God is doing in people’s lives, and then helping them see it and walk into it.”

Eddy holds an MA in Theology from Regent College in Vancouver, BC. He is an ordained pastor in the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana), and married to Sandy. Together they are raising two children on a micro-homestead north of Fort Collins.
