Meet the SERVE 6.8 Staff

Mike Walker – Executive Director

Solving complex problems has always been a passion for Mike. No surprise then that he entered public service after college, working and serving his community first as a firefighter and then a police officer. After years spent helping develop collaborative efforts on issues such as crime and homelessness, God called Mike into full time ministry so that he could apply his passion to the community problems that face the Church. That opportunity has now expanded into his current role of leading and facilitating collaborative efforts on issues of poverty and homelessness all across Northern Colorado with SERVE 6.8.


Stephanie Russell – Associate Director

Drawn to Social Work to have the opportunity to serve as a career; Stephanie enjoys being able to work in an organization that is making a positive difference in our community every day. Beginning with SERVE 6.8 as a Masters of Social Work intern and now as an employee, Stephanie has been able to utilize her passions for problem solving and analyzing to be a part of developing SERVE 6.8’s funding strategies, improving data collection methods and reportable outcomes, and supervising intern experiences. Sitting in her current role, overseeing the organization’s daily operations & programs, allows Stephanie to live out her call to serve those experiencing poverty.
