Tari serves as an associate on our NextGen team and is highly motivated to help pour into this next generation by helping churches find their right people!

Originally a Midwest girl and daughter to church planters, Tari grew up with a love and appreciation for the local church and authentic community. God ignited a passion in Tari’s heart during her teen years through CIY and it continues to fuel her desire to make an impact and grow the Kingdom of God through church and parachurch ministry.

She has invested 20+ years serving in student ministry, Youth For Christ, and Young Life. She also served students in various other capacities as a high school admissions counselor and gap year ministry recruiter for the fastest growing Christian university in the nation. Together with her family and a group of trailblazers, Tari moved across the country to church plant to Colorado 20 years ago and served as Director of Children and Family in 2 different seasons of church ministry.

Tari is a natural networker, recruiter, partnership builder, and innovative leader who loves to empower mission and grow organizations with her ability to “think outside the box.”

Currently getting her life coaching certification with emphasis in soul care, she is also excited to help create healthy and thriving cultures to prevent burnout. Her passion is to help others live out God’s unique call on their lives.

Tari lives with her husband, Jon who is an executive pastor in beautiful Denver, Colorado. She loves to play in the mountains and refuel on a beach! She is learning how to empty nest after raising three amazing kids and loves serving leaders and churches in this season of ministry!
