THE SKY RANCH STAFF

Brad Abbott – Executive Director I have been serving in Outdoor Ministry for over 26 years–five years at Stronghold Camp and Conference Center near Oregon, Illinois and, most recently, 18 years at Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp near Kalispell, Montana. After too many years of college to count, I graduated from the University of Montana with majors in Recreation Programming and Music Education. As a former music educator I love music, the outdoors, the Montana Grizzlies and everything Christmas. My wife, Deb, currently serves as pastor at the Lutheran-Episcopal Campus Ministry at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.  We live in Fort Collins with Kodi (our dog) where we enjoy the abundant sunshine of the Colorado front range.
Andy Sprain – Associate DirectorI have worked with Sky Ranch 2006, after two summers on staff as a counselor and as a guide. In my work as Associate Director, I oversee the property and facilities of Sky Ranch, run the high school High Wilderness, Four Winds, and Rendezvous programs, contribute to marketing and outreach efforts, and serve as our liaison to the Rocky Mountain Synod. My wife, two daughters, and two dogs life in Fort Collins, and love to be outside whenever possible.
Kathryn Seyfarth – Program DirectorI have the privilege of working with our onsite programming including Traveling Day Camp and Environmental Education programming.  I have worked 3 summers as seasonal staff as a specialist and on leadership staff.  I graduated from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL in May of 2011 with degrees in Communications and Psychology.   I am originally from Littleton, CO but recently moved up to Fort Collins, CO where I can fuel my love for local coffee shops.
Ally Plucheck – Office ManagerI am excited to be joining the staff of Sky Ranch Lutheran Camp as the new office manager. I have previously worked at Sky Ranch for 4 seasons as the summer cook and the fall host. I am originally from Centennial, Colorado and am a member of Bethany Lutheran Church, Cherry Hills Village. I live in Loveland and am working to finish my Associates of Science degree. When not busy with work and school, I enjoy being outside with friends.
