Chester & Sirikit Umaguing
Chester and Sirikit met in Boston in 1988 and were married in February of 1992. They have been blessed with two children, Joshua and Alexa.
Chester was born and raised in San Diego, California. He worked for General Dynamics Space System Division after finishing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of San Diego. Sirikit received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She received her masters in Family Life and Child Development at the University of the Philippines and afterwards taught both preschool and college levels for 6 years.
Chester and Sirikit are known for their faith, passion and love for God and people. They started full time missionaries in the Philippines in 1989 and continued for 15 years. Their faith grew tremendously as they saw God change thousands of people to become christians. God has not only used them to plant churches but to travel to different countries and cities to speak and strengthen different congregations.
In 2004 they moved back to the United States. They continued to be active in serving different local churches while working in the restaurant business.
In June of 2014, Chester and Sirikit Umaguing moved to Colorado Springs to answer the call to work full time in the ministry. Since moving here they have fallen in love with the city and the people. During their spare time, Chester loves to bow hunt and fly fish while Sirikit loves to do crafts and cook for people!
jj & trinity griffin
The Griffins are blessed to lead the campus ministry in the Colorado Springs Christian Church. After playing football and graduating from Texas Tech University in 2009, JJ moved to Colorado Springs to pursue a career in strength and conditioning. After being deeply moved by studying the Bible, he made Jesus Lord of his life in 2010. In 2011 God opened a door for JJ to intern for the church, where he has been blessed to serve ever since.
In 2011 Trinity, who was wrestling at the Olympic Training Center, was invited to church by one of her teammates. God worked in her life in a powerful way and she became a christian in November of 2011. Shortly afterwards JJ and Trinity became best friends and they fell in love as they have served together in the campus ministry to advance God’s kingdom!
They were married in 2013 and just recently JJ has been added to the full time staff and Trinity part time. They just welcomed their first child, a baby girl, Thomasin Marlee Griffin, in August! God continues to enrich and bless their lives through their relationship with Him, their marriage, the campus ministry and the church as whole!
