Leadership at Manitou Community Church

The best church leader is a team. At Community Congregational Church, we’re blessed with an outstanding group of dedicated paid and volunteer leaders who conduct services, run events and keep our community on a clear spiritual path.


Rev Heather McDuffee


Let me introduce myself. I’m Reverend Heather McDuffee. I began ministry more than 20 years ago in Boulder, CO. I have been an Associate Minister in Boulder, CO and in Canton, Ohio and a Lead Pastor in Colorado Springs. I am passionate about social justice ministry and action, from racial justice ministry to food and healthcare equity. Other than ministry, I live with my future wife, Brandy, and my two smart and sassy tweenaged girls. I love singing, talking about the Enneagram, looking for art for my next tattoo, hiking with my Chihuahua, listening to '90's hip hop, working in my gardens and trusting God with it all


Pryncess Favors

Office Administrator Extraordinaire

Pryncess has been making a difference in her community for over 10 years. She specializes in strategic planning, administrative services, and project management. For the past 5 years, Pryncess has served as an essential facilitator in helping Just Be Colorado, a local 501c3 in Colorado Springs. In her professional field, she provided access to the underinsured and uninsured community with the Community Health Partnership as the Director of the Coordinated Access to Community Health program. Pryncess’s goal is to help provide opportunities for career and life skills, female empowerment and financial freedom. She believes in diversity, equity and inclusion must be integrated into the fabric of an organization in order to transform how staff, volunteers and community create inclusive work environments and high impact program strategies. She loves glitter, comfy clothes, stilettos, and most of all adventures with her little friends.
