Joseph Winger - Senior Pastor and Elder
Joseph has done a little bit of everything in this 30+ years of full-time ministry--and loved it all--but nothing has been quite as fulfilling as serving as senior pastor of Boulder Street Church. In January 2008, Joseph came to Boulder Street after seven years as an associate pastor at New Life Church in Colorado Springs. His focus at New Life was largely mobilizing prayer, which is a calling very dear to his heart.
World missions is also a great love of Joseph’s, and he and the family spent three years in Guatemala developing a leadership institute that trained church planters. His fascination with everything foreign (food, languages, and cultures) has taken him to many countries--often on prayer journeys--including Cambodia, Haiti, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, Mexico, Czech Republic, Nepal, Switzerland, Nigeria, and Burundi. Joseph spent seven years as the International Director of Prayer Mobilization for Every Home for Christ and pastored ten years in Texas, his native “country.”
He holds a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Paula, have two sons, Joe (married to Bekah) and Andrew (married to Monika), a daughter, Elizabeth, (married to Austin), a granddaughter, Madeline, and twin grandsons, Elliott and Luke.
Paula Winger - Administrator
Paula married Joseph in 1976 and embarked on an adventure that never stops. Her administrative gifting offers countless opportunities to serve the body of Christ at Boulder Street. Paula and Joseph met in a Greek class at Texas Tech University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism.
She worked in editing over the years, but her greatest joy was being a stay-at-home mom to Andrew, Joe, and Elizabeth. She loves hanging out with BSC ladies over lunch or coffee and is joyfully embracing her new role as grandmother to little Madeline Hope and twin grandsons Elliott and Luke.
Diana Martinez - Director of Community Care
Diana came to BSC after serving 15 years as the pastor of Mt. Sinai Church. Her strong pastoral ministry graces and contagious joy are a continual blessing to those who drop by the church office. As office manager, she assists Joseph and the rest of the staff with administrative support and keeps the office moving smoothly and efficiently.
Her powerful ministry of intercession and prayer adds a tremendous strength to the staff and the whole BSC community.
Diana recently earned a masters degree in Public Policy and Public Administration from UC Denver. In her free time she enjoys reading, hiking, and gardening. She has three grown children and one granddaughter.
Stephen Fisher – Bookkeeper
Steve and his wife, Sheryl, discovered BSC in 2004. They live just 3 blocks from the church and have a special love for the local community. Steve joined the staff in 2017 shortly after retiring as the office manager at Window International Network. He has also served on the usher team most of his 15 years at BSC.
Steve came to Colorado in 1977 at the age of 23 from his hometown of Muscatine, Iowa. He worked as a tool and die maker, followed by 15 years in production control at Ford Microelectronics. Later he worked in inventory control at Intel Corp. Steve attended and served at Monument Bible College from the mid-’80s thru the ’90s. He was blessed to travel on 7 Bible study tours of Israel as well as missions trips and prayer journeys to Guatemala, Turkey and Jordan.
Steve and Sheryl especially love Boulder Street Church because of their devotion to worship, prayer, missions, and the spiritual health of Colorado Springs. Steve believes in letting go of the sin, pain, and circumstances of the past and grasping the liberty and peace that our Creator has already given us so freely through our Lord Jesus.
