Erika Glisson, Parish Administrator

Erika came to COT in July of 2017. She is originally from California and she and her family moved here after her husband’s job was transferred to Denver. She has always loved the mountains after spending her summers as a child in Wyoming. After being in Colorado for a short time, she and her family feel that living here is like “coming home to a place you’ve never been before" and that it's only by God's abundant Grace that led them here.

Erika brings 25+ years of church administration experience to Transfiguration. She and her husband Mike have been married for over 20 years and have 3 teenage boys. She loves spending time with her kids, hiking, horseback riding, drinking good wine and being able to experience God’s amazing creation in Colorado.
