Mark Hotaling, Pastor
A native Coloradan, Mark came to salvation in Jesus Christ in High School through a local youth ministry.

After returning home, Mark followed the Lord’s call to serving Him full-time and graduated from the Pastor’s Institute at Mountain View Community Church. While overseeing the Children’s Ministry at Mountain View, he and Stephanie lead a Small Group and are now realizing their calling as church planters.

Marvin Coblentz, Deacon; Community Group Leader
Marvin was born in northeastern Ohio and moved to Pennsylvania as a teenager where he met his wife, Twyla. While he was raised in a family that regularly attended church services including Sunday School and Bible School, it wasn’t until moving to Colorado in 2003 that the Lord began changing his heart. Through a series of business failures, family struggles and a health crisis, God brought Marvin to his knees in the parking lot of Home Depot where he surrendered his life to His Savior, Jesus Christ. Marvin is devoted to his Lord, wife and family and is excited to serve the body of believers at High Plains Harvest.
Brian Gray, Deacon; Community Group Leader
Growing up in a Christian home, Brian was surrounded by Christian influence and action but it wasn’t until high school that he began to see that His faith needed to be his own. It was in the context of his high school youth group that Brian first started to follow Christ from the heart. In the fall of 2004, Brian came to Colorado State University from Littleton Colorado to finish school and loved it so much that he decided to stay in northern Colorado. It was during these first few days at CSU that he first started coming to Mountain View Community Church and met his future wife Meg. After graduation, Brian and Meg were married and intended to settle down in Fort Collins. God, however, had other plans for their lives and now Brian and Meg know that He has called them to help plant High Plains Harvest. Brian graduated Mountain View’s Pastor’s Institute in the Spring of 2010 and is currently serving as a deacon. Brain and Meg are blessed with three children – Matthew, Daniel, and Kate.
