Children's Ministry Director
My name is Marla Dervaes, I was born in Wichita, Kansas. I met my awesome husband, Nelson, at our church youth group when I was 16 years old and we have been married for over 30 years! After high school, I attended Kansas State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. My husband and I have two beautiful daughters that we are very proud of. Our oldest daughter, Jennifer, is married to Danny and they live in Denver. Our youngest daughter, Rachel, is married to Nick and they also live in Denver. My favorite activities are shopping, hiking with my husband and our dog, and riding bikes with my husband. We bike in the foothills year round three or four times a week, but my favorite bike rides are in the mountains. Several years ago, I told Nelson that I never wanted to ride up Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park because it was too scary on a bicycle…now however; Trail Ridge Road is one of my favorite rides! One of the best things about riding bikes in the mountains is soaking up God’s AMAZING creation!
