Mike Gies


Mike is one of the kindest and gentlest men you'll ever know. He's humble--even though by the world's standards, he wouldn't have to be. He is a rocket scientist! (You can imagine how much that helps Pastor John's preaching since he can say, "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to . . .") His wife Tara is a servant-hearted lover of Jesus. And, together, they have served and loved our community for decades.

Scott Jussel


Watch out for Scott Jussel. In one moment, he'll have you on the floor laughing, the next moment backing into a corner since he's messing with you, and the next moment, you'll be in tears because of his honest conversation and unmistakable love. He's a Colorado native and he and his wife Pam have been in Evergreen for decades. He's owned a successful small business for many years and has served at Ascent with distinction and humility.

Ben McComb


Ben McComb has always had a heart for kids and had an aspiration to invest in their lives. Ben was a Regional Director for Young Life, a Para-church youth ministry after his time getting a degree and playing football for West Virginia University. As well continuing in seminary at Fuller Seminary. He has also owned several small businesses through the years in Evergreen. In 1985, he and his wife, Judy, founded Teen Lunch Club--a Colorado non-profit youth ministry that has transformed our mountain community and our family's teens.

Andy Wann


Having grown up in Georgia, Andy loved visiting the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains. In 1988, he made a decision to move to the Rocky Mountains. Andy served in the U.S. Army Infantry and holds a B.A degree from Columbia College. Earning a Real Estate license in 1994 and spending many years in the corporate world and radio business, he decided to make real estate a full-time career in the spring of 2006.

He has been an Ambassador for the Evergreen Chamber of Commerce (Ambassador of the Year 2010), member of the American Legion, VP of Snow Dodgers ski program for kids, board member for "Men for the Cure" Foundation, a member of the Mountain Metro Association of Realtors, including recognition as "Realtor of the Year" for 2014! Andy is happily married to his beautiful wife, Barb. They have two children named Tommy and Anna. Ask him about his Green Egg grill. Make sure you have allotted enough time for the answer (and a taste test of his work).
