  • Jared Oldenburg, Pastor

    Jared Oldenburg (Pastor) I grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin where I attended Fox Valley Lutheran High School and met Aimee. (Yes, we started dating in 1991 when we were 14 and 15 years old!) Aimee went to the University of Wisconsin Lacrosse (BA in Psychology). I attended Martin Luther College and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary graduating both with honors. We have worked with congregations in urban and suburban Milwaukee, WI; Santa Maria, California; and Thornton, Colorado (vicar/intern). 

    After graduation I was assigned to start a church in Maple Valley, Washington (near Seattle). With God's guidance and direction Light of Life grew from 3 people to to a flourishing preschool and congregation of 150. I love spending time with my family skiing, cycling, orange Tic-Tacs (is there any other flavor?), and working to present the message of Jesus in clearer and clearer ways. 

    We live in Castle Rock with our three kids (Isabella 16, Paytra 14 and Owen 10. We are so excited to be in Colorado again and especially excited to be part of the thriving, family-oriented community of Castle Rock. We can't wait to see what the Lord has in store as we share the message of Jesus


  • Carrie Ochitwa, worship & Music

    My dad first brought me to Colorado when I was twelve and it was enough for me to fall in love with the mountains and sunshine. I attended college in my home state of Michigan, but upon graduation, my first job brought me to Denver!

    Traveling was a big part of my marketing position and after a few years in Chicago where I met my husband, Rob, it was back to Colorado. We have raised two daughters here. Annie is a collegiate swimmer/grad student at University of Missouri, and Janie skates for Disney on Ice and attends online college through Arizona State.

    Marketing consulting, piano, playing tennis, raising a lively labradoodle and visiting the girls are true blessings in my life. People that know me well would say that music is the way I connect most with my fellow Christians. If you are interested in music at Eternal Rock, please let me know!
