Youth Director

It’s a moose because of the way that it is. Really, the director position is currently vacant. Be on the lookout for the “free at last” renegade assistants listed below!


Shannon Werner

Assistant Youth & Kaleo Project Coordinator

Shannon came to the Rocky Mountain Conference from California in 2015 with her husband Nathan. Since arriving, Shannon has lead multiple international mission trips involving over 300 students from the RMC, impacting thousands of lives. She is passionate about climbing, her cat Moose, and outdoor education ministry. 


Brent Learned

Assistant Youth & Mills Spring Ranch Director

Brent joined the RMC Youth team in August of 2018, transitioning from a position as an automotive technician instructor in Colorado Springs, CO. Brent has extensive experience working in Youth and Camp Ministry both as an employee of the Minnesota Conference of SDA and an avid volunteer in the RMC. Brent lives with his wife, Cassie, in Monument, CO where she teaches at the Air Force Academy. Brent is passionate about youth ministry, especially involving activities like biking, snowmobiling, and camping.


Kiefer Dooley

Assistant Youth & Summer Camp Director

Kiefer joined the RMC Youth team in the summer of 2016. Moving from Northwest Arkansas, he immediately loved the cooler and dryer climate in Colorado. Kiefer is passionate about summer camp ministry and is excited about the potential that GVR and MSR hold. He has gold wheels on his Subaru and hates straws, so he blends well in Boulder where his wife Jessyka is associate pastor at the Boulder Adventist Church.
