Bethany joined the pastoral staff in June of 2017.  She moved here from Jacksonville, Florida, where she was serving as a solo pastor at a small, urban congregation.  Originally from the Atlanta area, she attended The University of Tennessee where she received a degree in history, and then promptly made her way back to Atlanta.  After several years of administrative type jobs, in which she begrudgingly learned how to do budgets, she entered seminary at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia.  There she experienced the heartache and immense joy of Christian community, and began to understand her call to pastoral ministry.  Upon graduation, she and her husband, Matthew Benz-Whittington, also a CTS grad, headed to northern New Mexico to spend the summer at Ghost Ranch.  That summer, they fell in love with the west, and particularly Colorado, vowing to come back some day.  Bethany is in love with the mountains and the snow, and would do anything to just be outside.  However, when she can't be outside, she loves a good craft beer and an episode of The West Wing.

Heather is a Longmont native and enjoys living so close to the mountains. Though she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, contributing to her ability to multi-task and be organized, it is the intangibles that cannot be taught that really qualify her for her position. Her cheerful smile and friendly greeting for everyone entering the church office are a tremendous asset. Those in need are encouraged and comforted by her caring and compassionate nature. Her willingness to “go the extra mile” ensures that the work gets done.

Tom Riis grew up outside of Binghamton, New York, earned music degrees from Oberlin College (Ohio) and the University of Michigan (1976, 1981), and came to Colorado in 1992 to direct CU Boulder’s American Music Research Center and to teach music history (a.k.a. musicology) at the University.  At an earlier teaching post at the University of Georgia (1981-1992) he conducted the Early Music Collegium, sang in the Athens Master Chorale, and co-founded a small English Renaissance choir called Voix Forts Claire.  He has sung, taught, and occasionally conducted music in Europe, mostly in Germany, between 1997 and 2015.  Having played the cello and sung in church since the age of 10, Tom is happy to be joining the Westview music team.

Elle Tyler moved from the Midwest to Boulder in 2011 to pursue her Master's degree in piano performance and pedagogy. She graduated in 2013, and is now a piano and early childhood music teacher in the Boulder/Erie areas.  She and her band-teacher-husband Ben love playing music of all styles and using their gifts to glorify the Lord!

At Westview, our Elders work with the pastors and other staff to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of our congregation.

The Deacons minister to those who are in need – the sick, the friendless, and those in distress in our congregation and in our community.
