We are always welcoming new staff!
David & GayLynn Horn
David and GayLynn are our campus directors! As teenagers, both were very involved in the beginnings of our campus and even met here in Cimarron. David, who is originally from Texas, did his School of Evangelism in England in 1978 with an outreach in Italy. GayLynn also did her School of Evangelism in 1978, but in Switzerland with an outreach to Italy, as well. While David owned a log business on the Western slope, GayLynn home-schooled all three of their children for 17 years. They have been faithful leaders to the campus for over fourteen years. We are blessed with wonderful leadership!

The Brubaker Family
Barry, Michelle, Trevor, Justin and Derek are from Pennsylvania. As a family, they completed a DTS here at Cimarron in 2014 with an outreach to Turkey, Armenia and the Republic of Georgia. Barry and Michelle got engaged here at Cimarron in 1993. Their entire family loves the outdoors and are a huge help to the campus.
Charity was raised in Ypsilanti, Michigan and did her DTS through Mercy Ships in Texas in the year of 2001. After serving for a few years in Texas, she came to the mountain. She left in 2010 to go back to Michigan and reconnect with family, returning in 2016 to lead DTS.
Ray & Patience Gifford
Ray and Patience did their DTS in West bank, BC, in 2003 while they were engaged. Before this, Patience was a missionary in Mexico for 14 years. She is a talented speaker who frequently travels to teach at different YWAM campuses. Ray loves to use heavy equipment and has built most of our ponds around the campus. Both enjoy cycling. In the summer of 2017 Ray cycled from sea to sea with his adult daughter. We are blessed by their skill sets and their heart for intercession and the base.
Kirk is originally from Oregon, but became a born-again Christian right here in Cimarron. Kirk completed his DTS in Tyler, Texas, in 2014 with an outreach in Romania. He gave his testimony in front of 200 people in Houston, Texas, and again in Chuj, Romania. Kirk loves to work outdoors and is responsible for keeping our grounds looking beautiful and green.
Desirae is from Lincoln, Nebraska. She is our head chef and very good at her job. Desirae loves pigs, hugs and to fellowship in the kitchen. She completed her DTS at Cimarron in 2018. Her outreach was to Thailand and Cambodia, where she somehow managed to avoid public speaking—unlike the rest of her team. If you visit, you'll be lucky enough to experience some of her wonderful food!
Kristina is from the not too far away city of Gunnison, Colorado. A few years back she came to Cimarron for her SST and later in 2017 did her DTS in Monroe, North Carolina. Kristina did her outreach in Cambodia, where she learned to count to 39 in Khmer (the native language of Cambodia). She loves to hike and adores her seven younger siblings. We are blessed to have her!
Natalie is from Lancaster, PA and did her first DTS at the ripe young age of three with her family and then spent the next 4 1/2 years as a staff kid here at Cimarron. She later came back to officially complete her own DTS during the Fall of 2018 with an outreach to Thailand and Cambodia. She is the head of our Hospitality Department as well as the base worship leader. Natalie prefers tea over coffee any day and is an introvert who plays piano, loves her books, and enjoys listening to her record player while probably singing along.

Sara was raised in San Diego, California but has been coming to the Mountain back and forth for the last ten years. She did her DTS here on the base in 2008 and went to the Navajo Nation and Thailand for her outreach. Sara helps in the kitchen as well as many other areas of our community, including leading SST. She has the most contagious laugh and calls the mountain her home.
