We are grateful for the incredible sacrifices that service men and women make for our country. We also know that these individuals aren’t the only ones, but their family and loved ones pay the price too. Southeast’s Military Support Community exists to encourage these brave men and women and their families. If you are directly connected to one of the branches of our military, or you have a loved one who is, this community is for you. We recognize that the challenges faced by military families is unique and not often understood by those who aren't in your shoes. So if you’re active-duty or retired, if you’re in the national guard or reserves, or if you’re the spouse, child, or parent of someone in the military (or you just have a heart for loving on members of our church who serve their country) we’d love for you to join!
CH (MAJ) David Nagel and his wife Christina have proudly served the U.S. Army - Colorado Army National Guard for 11 years and have a deep love for our men and women in uniform. After meeting at Colorado Christian University, David and Christina later served as pastor and wife for Green Mountain Christian Church in Lakewood, CO. The Lord eventually called this family to serve in the Military as a Chaplain and today they enjoy serving as a family at SECC. Christina serves full-time on staff at SECC as a part of the Next Gen team and David is the full-time chaplain for the Colorado National Guard with headquarters in Centennial, CO. David has served overseas and locally as a chaplain caring for the spiritual needs of Airmen and Soldiers in the Colorado Guard and understands the unique challenges faced by those in uniform. Together they share a strong desire to see men and women currently serving find a place to connect and grow in their faith in Christ. They would love to connect with you, be supportive in prayer, and help those in uniform plug into the church body at SECC. Together David and Christina are raising three kiddos - Herbie (12), Allie (11), and Bowman (9) and look forward to traveling this journey of life together with those in uniform, those who have served, and those who support those currently serving.
