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.

Alex Cox, Youth
At age 17, during a night of prayer at the high school youth group, God spoke to Alex in a profound way he had never experienced before. Since that moment, Alex has fallen in love with the Lord, and strived to walk with Him in any way he could.
After graduating high school, Alex helped lead the high school youth group at Calvary for over a year. Around that time, God called Alex to do a 6-month YWAM mission training school in New Zealand and Nepal. During his time away, Alex has fallen in love with God in a deeper way, and realized he has a passion for reaching middle school and high school aged kids. Alex wants to connect kids with God, their loving father, when they are wrestling with doubts and emotions like Alex did.
In 2019, Alex became Youth Pastor at Calvary Chapel Windsor. He is humbled by the privilege of serving God, and witnessing Him transforming lives.
