Steve Van Ostran
Rev. Dr. Steve Van Ostran is passionate about empowering local churches and in helping them become the incarnated body of Christ in their community. He has served as Executive Minister for ABCRM since March of 2008 and has been involved in coaching pastors and local churches since 2003 after 18 years of pastoring local churches.
Mike now serves as the Region Administrator after years of leadership (and fun) working with churches and pastors as the Ministry & Mission Coach for Wyoming, the Northern Front Range, and Southeastern New Mexico. He loves to see churches and pastors to thrive, and is dedicated to their success.
PASTOR TO PASTOR
Rev. Dr. Kim Skattum has been active in the American Baptist Churches of the Rocky Mountains since August 1982. He began his ministry as the director of music and youth at Crossroads Baptist church until the retirement of Rev. Roland Taylor in 1992 at which time he was elected as the church’s 2nd pastor. He enjoys the chance to visit with pastors throughout the region.
MINISTRY & MISSION COACH FOR RURAL AREAS AND BI-VOCATIONAL MINISTRY
Clint Walker is joining the staff at ABCRM as Ministry and Mission Coach for Small Town and Rural Churches and Bivocational Ministry this spring. He is transitioning from pastoring First Baptist Church of North Platte, NE.
Although he is moving from a neighboring state, Clint is no stranger to the Rocky Mountain Region, having served as Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church of Colorado Springs from 2003-2008, and at First Baptist Church of Fowler, Colorado from 2008-2012. More details to come!
Brian shares his gift of writing and of graphic design with the ABCRM team. As the current pastor of FBC of Loveland, Brian seeks to do more with digital ministry to help connect with those who are hurting and experiencing a sense of loss in life.
