Craig Hasselbach

Lead Pastor

Rebecca and I married in June of 1996. For me, it was love at first sight in Dallas Seminary’s library when Rebecca caught my eye across a book-filled room. She was working as a temporary librarian over the winter break (fortunately, studying pays off in more ways than one). We have four kids as a result of two births (the last birth resulted in triplets). I love my family and enjoy spending time with them. We joined the LifePointe family in August, 2009. Read More

A few days after Missy and I were married, we threw our few belongings into a truck and drove to Fort Collins, Colorado for the first time in our lives, answering a call God had placed on our hearts to serve at LifePointe Church.  We have thoroughly enjoyed starting our lives together here over the past few years.  Hiking to Horsetooth, sipping lattes in Old Town, and swing dancing to jazz tunes are some of our favorite activities.

I got to marry the greatest woman ever in July of 2010, and her name is Adrienne.  She and I had known each other for many years before I finally got my stuff together enough to realize I needed to ask this girl out…a year later we were engaged in the coolest Christmas tree hunting excursion ever, where the end of the hunt was a little lit tree in the woods with a little red present under it that had a ring in it…she said yes!
