Pastors & Staff

Rev. Barbra LeFevre Lyons (She/Her/Hers)

Lead Pastor

I have been the pastor of Covenant Presbyterian DTC since 2007. I love serving this genuine, hospitable and caring congregation. My vision has always been to teach the kingdom of God, which is right here and right now. Where ever we see glimpses of God at work, that is God’s kingdom among us. At Covenant we strive to live life with kindness, never judging others, but embracing and caring for each other and our community with love. I have an amazing husband Pierre, who is a Southwest Flight Attendant, and 2 grown boys. Jaxon is at Berklee College of Music in Boston and Payce is apprenticing to become a tattoo artist. Pierre and I both love to entertain, we love good food, we love our Peleton, sci-fi shows, and our amazing labradoodle Indie!

Alex Sergio (He/Him/His)

Director of Spiritual Growth and Outreach

Welcome to our website, interested reader! As the Director of Spiritual Growth and Outreach my aim is to help continually foster the spiritual growth of the different communities of our congregation. This means working for and with the congregation to learn and study about ways in which our faith can grow, mature, and become more inclusive. I work primarily with the children's ministry, youth ministry, and our young adults/family ministries. On top of the spiritual growth of our church, I want to make sure our church gets connected with the surrounding community and vice versa.
My wife (Jenna) and I moved to Colorado at the beginning of 2020. We love exploring our new state. I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a degree in Biblical Text and Youth Ministry! I love music, movies, hikes, and digesting books about theology!
Working here at Covenant has been a dream. We have a dedicated team of professionals to walk alongside our congregation in the Spirit. Come check out our church and see what our congregation has to offer! 

Lydia Cooper (She/Her/Hers)

Office Manager

I'm the welcoming committee, payroll/bills and donation team leader, organizer, calendar guru, email handler, website updater, pretty much everyone's right hand person.  My job mainly consists of managing the part of the office that most people don't see. I feel as though I was placed in the position to do what I do best, help others.  
On that note I am a mother of three amazing young adults who make me proud almost daily. Connor, our oldest, is almost 23 and lives in Indiana with his girlfriend who has been an additional blessing to our family. Keegan, our middle child who is 20, just moved back to Virginia to become a firefighter through Virginia's Fire Department. He is looking forward to starting the program in January.  Our youngest, Dee who is 17, is working towards graduating from high school this year while working part time and volunteering. All three of my children love drawing, writing, and staying connected to their family.  
My husband, Keith and I met where we were born and raised in PA.  We lived most of our married life on the East Coast, PA, New York and Virginia before deciding to make our way here to Colorado for the weather.  Keith and I enjoy hiking, camping, hosting meals and traveling to see all of Colorado.  
I truly feel blessed to be a part of this team of dedicated people and I look forward to welcoming you. Please stop in for a visit, I'm sure you will find the peace you are looking for in your life.

Linda Marshall (She/Her/Hers)

Co-Director of Music 

I was born in central Pennsylvania, attended Syracuse University. I moved to Colorado 40 years ago and love spending time with my wonderful daughter, chocolate Labrador, and two cats. I have been fortunate to serve as the accompanist at Presbyterian Church of the Covenant for nearly 20 years.  I provide a variety of weekly incidental music during our worship service and accompany the choir.  PCOC is a wonderful place filled with people who are love music and are quick to offer a kind word.  It is a pleasure to serve this fine group.  I encourage you to consider joining us for worship on Sunday mornings beginning at 10:00AM.  You will enjoy lively music, a strong sense of community, and a meaningful message.  You'll leave the parking lot ready to face the week with enthusiasm and joy.

Jack Branning (He/Him/His)

Co-Director of Music 

Hi everyone!
My name is Jack Branning (he/him/his). I grew up in Meridian, MS and received my bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of Southern Mississippi. Fun facts about me are that I enjoy teaching, singing, songwriting, figure skating, and snowboarding! I began at Covenant DTC playing oboe for church cantatas in 2015, and quickly Covenant DTC became my church family, where I serve as Praise and Worship director as well as Co- Minister of Music and Worship. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I love being a part of a church and loving staff who welcome everyone, and I am happy to have found a way to give back to my church through music. I am thrilled to work with talented musicians, grow in community, build a youth music program, and bring back handbells!
We invite you to come check out our service and our loving community!
