Let all that you do be done in love.


Ten Peaks Church is a non-denominational church in Silverthorne. We love Jesus and all people. No matter your background, you are welcome here!

One Another– We need each other. If you’re out of church, come back! YOU are needed. God has gifted you uniquely to be a blessing to others and to receive that same blessing from others. We need each other– not only because of the obvious, the things we can’t do on our own, but rather because that’s how God designed life to be.

This week we resumed our study in the Book of Acts and looked at perhaps one of the most successful churches in history– the first Gentile church in Antioch. They committed themselves to God and they committed themselves to each other and they changed the world!

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV

PS– Chuck‘s message from this past Saturday begins at 28 minutes into the video.

Our weekly time together includes worship and Bible Study. We lovingly provide infant and childcare for kindergarten and under during our Bible Study time as well as a dedicated class for elementary ages. Older children and youth join us as we aim to make our Bible Study time engaging and exciting for youth and adults!

Ten Peaks Church held our first service in June 2016. We currently rent the church facilities from Abundant Life Church in Silverthorne and meet there every Saturday evening at 6:30 pm.

Ten Peaks Church is non-denominational and welcomes believers and skeptics to learn more about Jesus. We are also blessed to have the support of two like-minded churches who are fully-behind our vision:

Great Divide Calvary ChapelGreat Divide Calvary Chapel, a Calvary Chapel-affiliated church in Breckenridge, has made a commitment to help Ten Peaks Church as the Lord guides and provides. We are ever-so-thankful to have a local church supporting us. Chuck and Kirsten Straughn were blessed to call Great Divide Calvary Chapel their home church for many years. Ten Peaks Church remains a Great Divide Calvary-associated fellowship. To learn more about Great Divide Calvary Chapel, please click here.

New Heights ChurchNew Heights Church, a non-denominational church in Fayetteville, Arkansas, has a heart to plant churches around the world and share the love of Jesus. For many years they have had a heart for Silverthorne and sent two of their own members to help prepare the way. We were blessed to have church planters Curtis and Becky Wray help Ten Peaks Church through this journey. They have since moved on to begin another church and we pray God’s blessings upon all of their efforts. Ten Peaks Church remains a New Heights-associated fellowship.

Our Story

Welcome to Ten Peaks Church! We’re the Straughn Family (Chuck, Kirsten, Dillon, August, Lincoln and Victoria). Chuck is the pastor-teacher of Ten Peaks Church. Our family would like to invite you to be part of this new church in Silverthorne.

We’ve been full-time residents of Summit County for the past eight years. In 2009, God told us to give everything away and to follow His call on our lives for ministry and move to Summit County. By the grace of God alone, we listened and obeyed. Little did we know then that God would have us wait these past eight years while our hearts and minds were further prepared for this ministry.

We offer ourselves to Jesus, to be used as He sees fit, and to the community, to help teach and equip His church. We are looking for families and individuals to join with us in this effort as Jesus builds His church!

Our family is self-funded in this ministry, meaning we will not take a salary from the church, so that we may encourage everyone that Ten Peaks Church is solely focused on the Good News of Jesus and His power to transform lives through His great love for us!

We would like to get to know you personally. Email Chuck at chuck@tenpeakschurch.com or feel free to call or text (970) 333-1911.

Our Beliefs

We believe loving Jesus and loving others are our highest goals in life.

We believe the Bible, in its original manuscripts, is the infallible Word of God and the basis for our faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe there is one God, eternally existing as God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe sin separates us from God, and Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross.

We believe Jesus’ death on the cross, bodily resurrection, and our subsequent faith in Him as our Lord and Savior is our only hope for salvation.

We believe that salvation is given to us by God’s Grace alone and not by our works.

We believe salvation means we spend eternity with Jesus vs eternal separation in Hell.

We believe in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, that they are good, and that they should be exercised according to the Bible’s instructions.

We believe we can lovingly fellowship with other Christians who have different beliefs so long as their beliefs wouldn’t prevent someone from being saved, or stumble a weaker believer, or cause division within the church.
