Pastors

Michael Petillo

LEAD PASTOR

I am originally a born and raised Jersey boy from the east coast but have been here in Colorado Springs serving with Springs Church since 2009. I grew up pursuing an artistic career in photography and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2005. God got a hold of my heart during my college years and after photography school moved me on to Mt. Zion Bible School in Grantville, Pennsylvania. Through my affiliation with Mt. Zion, I had the honor and blessing to serve through two internships at Cork Church in Cork, Ireland and World Challenge Ministries here in Colorado Springs. I came on as the Youth Pastor at Springs Church in 2009 and have served the youth ministry for six years. I now serve here at Springs Church as an associate and teaching Pastor. My amazing wife Beth and I have two awesome boys, Landon and Max.

Gary Wilkerson

FOUNDING PASTOR

Gary and his wife Kelly launched Springs Church in 2009 along with Adam and Julie Taylor, and Patrick and Alicia Dow. Since that time, they have seen God’s hand and faithfulness through the growth and life of this church.

Gary also serves as the President of World Challenge, an international mission organization that was founded by his father, David Wilkerson. He has traveled nationally and internationally at conferences and conducted mission ventures such as starting orphanages, clinics and feeding programs among the poorest of the poor and the most unreached people of the earth.


STUDENT MINISTRIES

Tommy Moore

CHILDREN’S DIRECTOR

Being the Children’s Director at Springs Church allows me to share my passion for Jesus with the next generation. Whether it is building them up through the love of Christ, encouraging them through the Holy Spirit or giving them substance to stand on in their lives. In ministering to the students, my ultimate desire is to teach them how to have an authentic relationship with Jesus, and serve one another in love while equipping them to become disciples. When I’m not at church sharing the Gospel you can find me often times either matching wits with my incredible wife or playing Mario Kart on the Wii with my amazing son!


Evan Wilkerson

MIDDLE SCHOOL DIRECTOR

God has blessed me with a terrific job by giving me the opportunity to serve the Junior High Ministry and the Children’s Ministry for the last two years. While working at Springs Church, I’ve experienced just how much God truly loves us and how He manifests that love in unforgettable ways. I am a student at Eternity Bible College, and pastoring is what I believe I’m called to do. I have two wonderful and loving parents, Gary and Kelly Wilkerson, and I’m very close to my siblings, Ashley, Elliot, and Annie. I am married to my beautiful wife, Carmen, and we look forward to serving this church together.

Doris Snider

RECEPTIONIST

My husband and I served with YWAM in Canada, Europe, East Africa and New Jersey. Following our time with them we became pastors near Cape Cod, Massachusetts which led us to fulfill the call of the Lord to become full-time appointed missionaries with the Assemblies of God Global Missions. Since returning to the States, we settled in Colorado Springs where I have worked with various ministries. I volunteered for Springs Church over 6 years ago and then was hired on as Assistant to Jimmy Lilley in Mercy Springs. I now serve as Springs Church Receptionist.
