Pastor Jeff Wakeley


Welcome to Mountain View United Methodist Church.  My name is Pastor Jeff Wakeley and I would love to have the opportunity to greet you at one of our Sunday morning services.  We have a passion for people to know God’s love and grace.  We are a welcoming people focused on building a community of faith where everyone is united in Jesus Christ. When we say  The United Methodist Church’s slogan “Open Minds, Open Hearts and Open Doors”, we really mean it. No if and or buts.  You are welcome regardless of who you are or where you come from.   

We invite you to roam around our website to see what we are doing to help connect people with the love of God in Jesus Christ.  While we have a traditional service it is not stiff.  We love passing the peace and singing “Let there be peace on earth” while holding hands. Beside my timely message based on the Scripture, we have a great music ministry being one of the only churches in Woodland Park with a traditional Adult Choir.   In addition we have a magnificent bell choir and a number of music groups that perform regularly in worship like the contemporary group “Changing Hearts”.


Mountain View United Methodist is also focused on reaching out to the community.  We are proud to lend our facility to many non-profit groups that serve the Woodland Park Community.  These include The Woodland Park Symphonic Band, AA and Al-Anon, P.E.O, Quilters, to name a few.  We also reach out in support of local missions like the Marian House and Divide Food Pantry and TCRAS.  We also have regular educational and spiritual learning events which are open to the public and where people can participate online on  Zoom.   We also have groups available to pray for whatever you are going through.  Just click on the tab for “prayer request” and tell us what you need prayer for.     


I hope as you roam around our website to get to know us that you will give us the opportunity to get to know you and perhaps even assist you in your own spiritual journey with God.  If you are unsure about us, then how about trying us out online on Youtube.  Our address is   


Again thank you for searching us out on the web.  If you are traveling through Woodland Park, then our prayers for you are safe travels.  If you are new to Woodland Park and looking for a “different kind of church” that is truly inclusive to belong to then our prayer is that you will join us soon.  If ever we can do anything for you please call us.  We want to help!

                                                        Grace and Peace,

                                                         Pastor Jeff Wakeley
