About Dr. Alan Ahlgrim

Keynote speaker Alan Ahlgrim

Longmont, Colorado

Dr. Alan Ahlgrim is now leveraging the agony and ecstasy of 50 years of ministry. He retired from his role as founding pastor of Rocky Mountain Christian Church in Colorado; however, he has not retired from active ministry and now serves as the Chief Soul Care Officer of Covenant Connections for Pastors.

Alan invests heavily in the hard work of heart work, helping other leaders serve well and finish well by connecting them in soul enriching Covenant Groups. These small in-depth communities are transformational because they are designed first for soul care, producing remarkable renewal and resilience.

Most of Alan’s work is now done in Colorado; however, he is catalyzing a national network of soul care groups meeting in various locations. Each group meets together over three years and is led by a trained facilitator.
