Pastor Connor DeFehr

Pastor of Spiritual Life and Worship

Connor has been a part of the Land since the dead of winter 2019, which shows that he’s truly committed to it! When he’s not getting seconds on food there, he’s probably off to a gig since he has been a professional bassist for many years throughout the Denver area. Connor also greatly enjoys song writing, which often looks like putting new lyrics and chords on an old hymn or setting an old tune to jazz so he can play it with his trio.

His passion for worship has stayed with him since the end of middle school when he played bass and began being mentored under the wing of his good friend Zac Hicks. Under Zac, he developed a passion to not only play fun worship songs, but also to equip people to enter into a deeper relationship with God through the words we sing and reflect on.

Connor recently graduated with an MDiv degree from Denver Seminary and is now pursuing chaplaincy alongside his pastoral call. In his spare time, he enjoys going on hikes, eating unique foods, and reading often. Of course, these things are better done with his wife, Jess, his two cats: Tobias and Thalia, and his baby girl Jovie, who was born April 3rd of 2019.
