While our population growth is far above the norm of most of the country, church growth trails far behind. The SBC church-to-population ratio for SEND Denver is 1 to 19,397. Thus, there is a desperate need for strong, evangelistically passionate churches to saturate The Front Range and beyond.

Four Major communities define this region:

SEND Front Range Coalition:
The SEND Front Range Coalition is a pastor- and Associational-led partnership with representatives from all along the Front Range.

We see a day when God creates a movement that causes the spiritual landscape of this city and region to one day reflect the physical landscape of God’s incredible creation.
