Danielle Reeves Lead Pastor at Resilience Church.
Danielle has lived in the Littleton area for the past 20 years and spent that time serving in local pastoral roles, fostering and leading church collaborations, and building bridges between the faith community and local government agencies. These partnerships flow out of Danielle’s passion for seeking unity in the midst of diversity, extending Jesus’s invitation to sit at his table with people from all different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. This prompted the fall 2020 launch of Resilience Church, a community that strives to gather together, walk the journey of faith, and serve the community side-by-side.
Danielle holds a Master of Divinity degree from Denver Seminary, an MA in Organizational Leadership degree from Eastern University, and is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Spiritual Formation, Leadership, and Church Planting at Asbury Seminary. She’s been married to her husband David for 28 years and has four kids and one daughter-in-law: Cole (Brittany), Brennan, Aubrey, and Micah. In her free time, Danielle enjoys exercising outdoors, reading at coffee shops, serving the community, and spending time with her family.
Luke Mathewson, Associate Pastor
Luke was born in Montana, and when he was 12, his family moved to the Chicago suburb of Libertyville. He attended the University of North Dakota, where he met his wife, Janzyn, and received a BA in History. Shortly after getting married in 2017, Luke and Janzyn moved to Denver so Luke could attend Denver Seminary, where he received his Master of Divinity degree. During his time in seminary, Luke worked as a Student Ministry Resident at a local church. Following this role, Luke joined Danielle as part of the Resilience Church team where he serves as Associate Pastor.
Luke loves fly fishing, watching and coaching football, visiting Rocky Mountain National Park, and playing with his and Janzyn’s two sons.
