We’re so glad you’re here!

Whether you’re visiting, recently settled in Leadville, or looking for a church home, we welcome you to worship with us on Sundays at 10am.

My wife, Jessie, and I transplanted here in 2016 and love the diverse nature of this mountain town. Our hope is to see it reflected in the body of believers at First Baptist Church of Leadville and to build a loving, passionate, and welcoming community.

I’m bivocational, serving as both a full-time Pastor (since March 2019) and a full-time Mine Superintendent at Climax.

If you’re interested in hearing previous sermons or engaging with me online through my virtual office hours, please explore our website! I periodically livestream and would love to interact with you! If there’s any other way I can connect with and serve you, don’t hesitate to reach out.

In Christ,

Pastor Tanner Thetford
