Scott Cox, Pastor
Scott grew up in a small town in western Colorado and lived a fairly typical American boy’s lifestyle. He graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley with a degree in geography, and landed a job in northern California as a cartographer (map maker) in 1991. While in California, he met a young woman, Nancy, who was a Christian.
Nancy immediately invited Scott to Bible study and church (Calvary Chapel Modesto) with her. Scott began reading the Bible and praying, but he wasn’t saved.
Over the course of the next five months, all of Scott’s objections to Jesus were answered. One evening, alone in his car, Scott surrendered his life to God. He asked for forgiveness of all the horrible things he’d ever done. And the weight of all the sin he’d been carrying for years was lifted.
Scott and Nancy married and in 1993 moved to Colorado Springs. They attended Rocky Mountain Calvary and began volunteering in various ministries, including teaching children.
In 1998, Scott started teaching Bible studies with workmates and later led a home Bible study group through the Gospel of Matthew. Scott found that promotions and raises were no longer motivating him. God was redirecting his life toward ministry.
In 2005, Rocky Mountain Calvary hired Scott as part of their pastoral staff. But the burden to begin a new work for God’s kingdom was still strong. In the summer of 2006, the Coxes sold their home and moved to Windsor to start Calvary Chapel Windsor. They knew only one family in town.
They started a Thursday night Bible study at their home, going through the book of Acts. God gave Scott a job with the City of Greeley as a map maker. In October 2006, Calvary Chapel Windsor was officially born, with Sunday services at the Windsor High School cafeteria. Since then, God has blessed the teaching of His word by changing lives, growing His church, and providing a new location for the church.

Kevin Roybal, Worship
Kevin grew up in a small town north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. He accepted the Lord at an early age, around seven, and has followed the Lord ever since. At age 10, he began serving on worship teams and has been doing so for the past 25 years. After graduating from high school, Kevin pursued music, touring with his band and with YWAM’s Music for Missions. Kevin also helped run a couple of Christian coffee houses in the Santa Fe area.
Favorite verse: ‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,’ says the LORD, ‘thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.’ – Jeremiah 29:11
Valerie Roybal, Children’s Ministry
Valerie grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She was brought up in a Christian home but didn’t surrender and dedicate her life to the Lord until young adulthood, after moving to San Diego, California. God provided many very special mentors to disciple her as a new believer and built her faith through missions trips to China and Mexico.
God brought Valerie and her husband, Kevin, together in California where they were married and served on the worship team together. They left San Diego to be closer to family. The Lord blessed them with a son, Liam, and daughter, Lauren, after moving to Littleton, Colorado. It was through their children that God began to develop a desire in Valerie to serve God through teaching children the Word of God. While attending Horizon Christian Fellowship in Littleton, God called Valerie to teach children on Sunday mornings.
In 2016, God relocated their family to Windsor, Colorado, and led them to Calvary Chapel Windsor where Valerie continues to share her passion to know Jesus with children.
