Rev. Stan Rieb
Stan Rieb’s passion for gospel ministry through the local church has led to his serving six churches in Colorado and Wyoming over the last 37 years. In 2004, he moved into regional and national ministry through the Rocky Mountain Church Network and CBAmerica. He has since been involved in nearly 100 church health assessments or Ministry Mappings. Using his appreciation for technology, and a belief that congregational health rises or falls on effective leadership, he coaches pastors and church leaders from throughout the United States. As a Certified Birkman Coach he can help individuals develop an understanding of their personal strengths and needs and assist groups to build greater cohesiveness through understanding their team dynamics.
He and Heidi have been married for 44 years. They are the proud grandparents of ten exceptional grandchildren from three rather ordinary sons who married well (a Pastor, a Human Resource manager, and a Doctor might indicate the sons are ok but don’t tell them).

They have a son Nathan who is married to Megan, and they live in Colorado Springs.
Rev. Kent Dempsey
Area Coach – Northern Wyoming/Montana
A high school football star, the team/coaching mentality has become a theme in Kent Dempsey’s ministry style. Beginning in youth ministry in Louisiana, Kent’s passion for the Gospel and motivational energy and team-building skills drew teens to get involved in ministry and to reach out to their peers. Transitioning into Christian Camping in Oklahoma’s Ozark foothills, Kent discovered a ministry where his sports training and love of outdoors would combine with his Christian leadership strengths as he trained college-age men and women to be camp counselors. In off-seasons, he would accept interim pastor positions and would visit area churches to promote the cause of Christ through Christian Camping. Gradually moving into camp administration, Kent became Executive Director of Camp Bethel in Wyoming’s Big Horn Mountains in 1991. With a vision-casting Board of Directors, Kent helped develop this camp from summer-only use to year-round use, upgrading the facilities to accommodate camps and retreats throughout the year. He connected with RMCN pastors in the Wyoming-Montana region as he promoted Camp Bethel and attended Pastors-and-Wives gatherings through the years. Pastors called on Kent for pulpit supply, and congregations invited him to help out when they were in pastor-search modes. An interim pastor stint in Basin, Wyoming, resulted in a permanent position as Lead Pastor of First Baptist Church in 1998. Kent “coached” this loving congregation for 18 years and watched them increase from an attendance of 75 to nearly 300. Throughout his years as Lead Pastor, Kent also served as a high school football coach at Riverside High School in Basin, Wyoming, and at Greybull High School. Stepping down in March 2016 to become a full-time caregiver for his parents at home, Kent is blessed to remain on the support staff at First Baptist Church in Basin under the leadership of Pastor Aaron Gesch. Kent’s folks have passed away now, and Kent is ready to continue his “coaching” career, as Area Coach for the Rocky Mountain Church Network.
