Pastor Dee & Cindy Highland

Pastor Dee and his wife of 33 years, Cindy, hail from Loveland, Colorado where they raised their 2 children. They now have 5 grandchildren, also in the area. (They are definitely too young to have great grandchildren – yet)

Pastor Dee met Christ in 1976 while ranching in Montana and later attended Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Lord birthed Laporte Outreach Church on the hill north of Laporte beside the old cement factory as Pastor Dee got on his knees praying to the Lord on that very spot. From that drawing, Pastor Dee felt led to reach out to the northwestern area of Fort Collins and Laporte, and eventually enlarging to all of Northern Colorado.

The first service of Laporte Outreach Church was at the Cache La Poudre Middle School in Laporte on January 8, 2000. Since that time, they have seen people and families healed in many ways and their thrill in life is seeing individuals and families grow in the Lord God and experience His mercies daily.

Cindy has lead worship since the inception of the church and loves to lead His people into His presence – understanding that in His presence is fullness of joy and pleasures forever more.

Pastor Dee and Cindy are thrilled to watch the Lord “Growing Families God’s Way”. They enjoy each other, their church family as well as their children and their families and God’s wonderful people and are excited to see what the Lord, through the Holy Spirit, has in store next.

David & Vicki Rice

Teachers, Worship Leaders, Prophetic Ministry, Elders

Fresh Water is a family duet that ministers to the whole family. This team consists of Founder (1976) David Rice and wife Vicki (married 2-14-79). Their ministry is birthed out of a vital, growing relationship with Christ, so for them the good news of the Gospel is always FRESH! Their songs are original and their music and ministry are versatile in style, allowing them to reach out to each age group and also to cross denominational boundaries. They are aired on many stations, nation-wide. Much more than just song writers, singers, and musicians, they continue to release a wealth of Anointing, fresh insight, and prophetic worship everywhere they go. As a result, exciting things happen! People are born of the Spirit and healed! Captives are delivered and set free! Strongholds are brought down and the aroma of Christ fills the hearts of those present! (2 Cor 2:14-16) (2 Cor 10:4-5)
