Our Leadership


Patrick Lockhart


Pastor Pat and Julie Lockhart came to Granby Baptist Church in May 2010. Before arriving in Granby, the Lockhart's previously served the Lord at churches in Jermyn (pronounced German) Baptist Church - Jermyn, Texas and Lynn Gardens Baptist Church  - Pueblo, Colorado.

Julie Lockhart, a native of Monte Vista, Colorado was saved by God's sovereign grace at the tender age of twelve. She is gifted with teaching young children. She is involved with children's Sunday School and is currently employed at Church of Eternal Hills as a pre-school teacher. Julie credits the Lord with equipping her with gift of hospitality. She also serves the church as the Care Ministry leader.

Patrick Lockhart, also a native Coloradan, was born and raised in Monte Vista. Upon graduation from Monte Vista High School in 1977 he worked at the family furniture store for 19 years. He married his wife Julie, in 1982. The Lockhart's have one son, Jeff and two granddaughters, Raelynn and Adaline.

In March 1985, by the sovereign grace of God, Patrick surrendered his life to Christ. It was not until September 1995 that Patrick was called into the ministry. Pastor Pat holds two Theology degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. 

Patrick has a passion for preaching and teaching the truth of God's Word, studying the Scriptures, reading theological books, and Bible language dictionaries. He and Julie firmly hold to the sufficiency and authority of the Scriptures. God's Word always achieves the purpose for which it is sent forth cf. Isaiah 55:11. Expository preaching expounds upon this and serves as the preferred method of preaching. 

In their spare time, Pastor Pat and Julie enjoy spending time with their family, traveling on occasion, reading, and marveling at God's beautiful creation.

The Lockhart's are grateful to be in Granby and serving the Lord faithfully.

He enjoys serving the Lord, teaching Sunday School, and whatever else the Lord calls him to do.

Aside from serving in the church, Rich enjoys traveling, fishing, skiing, and spending time with Sonya.



David Zeleznikar

David and his family came to Granby Baptist Church shortly after the COVID pandemic. David has had a passion for the Lord since he was a small boy going to Sunday school and church with his family in Leadville. The Lord saved David at a young age and the day after he was baptized, the church was set on fire. Upon returning to the rubble, he found an untouched clean white cloth the pastor used to cover his face at his baptism the day before. David knew the Lord was with him.

He has always had a passion for helping others. It was recently that David sensed the Lord calling him to serve. He realized that call was to be a deacon. He is content to work behind the scenes and make sure needs are met and the church is running smoothly.

David his wife live on a small ranch between Granby and Grand Lake with their two sons Adam and Jacob. They raise chickens and goats. In his free time, David enjoys studying the Bible, spending time in the auto shop with his sons, working on trucks, and enjoying the beauty of God's creation around him.
