Who We Are

SPENCER LINDSEY

Production and Social Media Intern, DCC Website Editor

Hi my name is Spencer Lindsey. I am the Elementary Intern and the youngest/ newest edition to the Kids Team. My job consists of elementary school curriculum, production team, and teaching some really awesome third graders…they’re my favorite. On Sunday I am usually talking to people somewhere in the building because they stopped me when I was trying to run and grab something for the teachers in Discovery Kids. I am always in a hurry and running around trying to help people with stuff that they need last minute and although it may seem like it, I am not a procrastinator. Growing up going to Discovery and going into the kids area, I have experienced how much each Sunday impacts and helps the kids grow and it’s something I love being a part of.

I am a middle child with 3 other sisters, my mom and dad, and the best pupper in the world. I just started college at UCCS and I am majoring in nursing. I want to be an ER nurse and spend the rest of my life helping people. My favorite thing in the whole world is spending time with people that I love because it makes me come alive and keeps me going. I love hiking and spending time outside. My absolute favorite place to be is the airport, even if I am just picking someone up and I love to people watch. Qdoba queso is one of my favorite things ever and I love coffee so if someone is feeling generous…now you know! I am very competitive and I love being pushed in ways that make me a better person. My biggest goal in life is to help people and to be a world changer even if it is in the smallest way.

REBECCA CROFOOT

Preschool Director

I’m Rebecca Crofoot. I’m the Preschool Coordinator. I have been volunteering with the Discovery Kids team for a few years.

A little about me: I am originally from Texas. I visited Colorado one Labor Day Weekend and fell in love with Colorado and I have called it home since 2008. I am a mom to an amazing, talented and beautiful daughter, Isabella. I am also lucky enough to have married my best friend, Henry, now I get to annoy him the rest of our lives. (Lucky him) We love to travel. My favorite destination so far is Australia.

I love dogs!! I AM the crazy dog lady!! I love volunteering with a The Misfits Dog Rescue so for the past several years we have had a revolving door of dogs coming through our home. We also have 3 dogs that we have rescued Grace, Punkin, and Boss. They can be quite the handful to come home to but the happiness and excitement that is in the air make all the cleanup and HAIR worth it.

MALLORY SPITZER

Elementary Director

Hey everybody, my name is Mallory. I’m the Elementary Coordinator here at Discovery! You can usually find me back in our Kid’s Worship room attempting to control the “Chaos” – also known as our 2-4th graders! I also get the privilege of working with the Kindergarteners and 1 st graders, too! I love being able to help these kiddos connect with Jesus in a new and fun way.

A little bit about me: I love a good thrift store, laughing, drinking coffee while it’s still hot, and organizing! I was born and raised in Illinois. After high school, I moved out to Colorado to attend UCCS. While in college I met a guy who stole my heart..and changed my name a few years later. We’ve moved all around the country since then, but we’re happy to be back in Colorado. Kyle and I have 2 beautiful little girls, 13 months apart, so I’m accustomed to coordinating chaos at home and at work! But, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

CHRISTY KING

Children’s Director

Hi, I’m Christy King. Im the Children’s Director at Discovery, and have been on staff for almost 9 years. I absolutely love what I do, and I look forward to every opportunity to be in the kids hallway. If you’re ever having a bad day, just enter our kids area… It inspires wonder and imagination, and you just fill with joy! Try it, you won’t be disappointed! Helping children discover who Jesus created them to be is so much fun, and every smile and every giggle make it worth it.

I have been married for 24 years to my adventure-loving husband, Mike. We have two grown children, Austin and Makayla. They are the reason I have to dye my hair, but also the reason I know love so deeply. I’m going to be the worst kind of grandparent, and I know it. My children have already had “that” talk.

I love to be outside! Camping and boating are some my favorite things to do. I have out-fished my husband for the past 3 years, and I make a mean spaghetti!

I’m spontaneous and fun loving, and I’ll try just about anything once!

HEATHER HAYNES

Asst. Children’s Director

Hi, I’m Heather and I like warm hugs! I’m the Assistant Children’s Director here at DCC. This means you will usually find me in the kids area making sure we are doing the absolute best we can, wandering the halls on Sunday morning to make sure all the kids (and adults) are happy, or hanging out with the best volunteer team a girl could ask for.

A little bit about me: I’m Mom to 3 beautiful children and wife to my high school sweetheart, Chris. I was born in California, raised in New Mexico and moved back to California after high school. I’ve been in Colorado since 2008 and just love all the seasons we have! I am a Disney fanatic, I love to be in or near any body of water (especially hot tubs or the beach), I am known for going on spontaneous vacations, and I am absolutely terrified of moths. Come say hi to me! I’d love to know more about you and your kids, too!

PRESLEY GRUBB

Team Coordinator

Hi! I’m Presley Grubb, and I am the Team Coordinator for the DCC Kids Team. You can usually find me on my laptop, communicating with our wonderful volunteers to ensure that these sweet children will be shown the love of Jesus. I thoroughly enjoy everything about my job and love being a part of this wonderful ministry!

A tad bit more about me: I am an Army wife and happily married to my wonderful husband, Ed (the super tall guy that is usually helping me out on Sunday mornings). I LOVE DOGS; especially my sweet little Yorkie and my energetic Siberian Husky. I probably should have grown up in the 1950’s, as I delight in the joy of the good ole’ Oldies and have a slight obsession with Elvis (just slight). I am also a HUGE Disney fanatic…especially Beauty and the Beast!
