Jay Pathak is the lead pastor of the Mile High Vineyard (MHV) where he strategically guides the mission and vision of the church as a whole, is the main teaching pastor, and provides oversight to each of MHV’s neighborhood churches. Committed to engaging and impacting those outside the church walls just as much as to those within, Jay and his team have worked to build MHV into a vibrant community that engages and impacts the city at every turn. In addition, Jay is a member of Vineyard USA’s Executive Team, and he has spoken nationally and internationally for Vineyard as well as other groups in both conference and classroom settings. He has co-authored a book with Dave Runyon titled The Art of Neighboring which inspires readers to follow the biblical commandment to love our neighbors. Jay and his wife, Danielle, have two daughters.
Dave Runyon is the founder and executive director of CityUnite, a role in which he acts as a consultant to faith, business, and government leaders to help them unite around common causes and make a positive impact in their communities. Dave is passionate about following the biblical commandment to love our neighbors and inspiring others to do the same. To that end, he started a neighboring movement in 2010 that has now spread to over 3,000 churches around the nation, an experience which prompted him to co-author a book with Jay Pathak titled The Art of Neighboring. Prior to founding CityUnite, Dave served as a pastor for 10 years at Foothills Community Church and The Next Level Church. He and his wife, Lauren, have four children.
