What We're All About
We are convinced that living with Jesus at the center of our lives is what truly changes everything. When Jesus becomes the center of our lives, we are filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Jesus doesn't make us less of who we are, he helps us become what we were always meant to be.
This is why we do everything we do. We're here to help people live Jesus-centered lives. Because this passion burns bright in us, we have a God-sized vision to have a transformational impact on 1% of our city, 1 person at a time.
This mission can only be accomplished with God's help, through prayer, and with each of us getting passionate about seeing our life and the lives of others changed by becoming more like Jesus every day!
Identity and Beliefs
Leadership And Staff
Lee Brown | Lead Pastor
Lee joined Sloan’s Lake Church in 2017 with a calling to reach the next generation and the people God misses most in Denver. Lee provides leadership and vision to SLCC and is the primary weekend teacher. Alongside the Elders of the church, Lee helps to shape and guide the culture to continually see transformation as people become more like Jesus every day.
Lee, his wife Renae, and their two children love board games, spending time in the mountains, and nerdy movies.

Kellen Abreu | Worship Arts Director
Kellen has felt God calling him to the Denver area for many years, and in summer 2017, packed up his family and moved from Los Angeles to Denver to serve as Worship Arts Director at Sloan's Lake. He leads worship music and works to engage the community in both visual and performing art (and over a good cup of coffee or tea). Kellen has served as a church musician and worship leader in four states over the past 20 years, and is excited about what God is doing at Sloan's Lake!
Kellen writes and plays music independently, is a coffee addict, video gamer, and thinker, and has a formidable collection of DVDs, musical instruments, and Star Wars memorabilia. He is a dedicated father of two little girls and the husband of local art teacher and fellow coffee enthusiast, Heather.
Leanor Ortega-Till | Pastor of Development
Leanor is a Colorado native and has lived in the northwest Denver area since 2004, so she understands the unique qualities of this changing community. She and her husband Stephen and two children, Eliseo and Inez, now live in Lakewood where they share a house with Stephen’s parents. Previous to her joining our staff, Leanor was on staff at Scum of the Earth Church, a inner-city church with a focus on reaching those on the fringe. The heart of her ministry at Scum was Women’s Ministry and she discipled several women throughout her 16 years on staff. She was also able to use her creative gifts and curated an art gallery that was housed in the church and hosted poetry readings.
Leanor is the tenor saxophonist (and sole woman) of Five Iron Frenzy, a rock band with horns. She loves playing concerts all around the country and writing songs with her close friends. For leisure time Leanor enjoys attending First Friday art walks, visiting the beautiful Colorado mountains and local strip mall restaurants to find hidden gems!
If you are interested in pre-marital counseling Leanor also has trained under the Prepare and Enrich program and would be happy to meet with you.
