Welcome to the historic turn-of-the-century

Buckhorn Presbyterian Church

  in Masonville, Colorado.


Rev. Vickie KintzelRev. Vickie Kintzel joins Buckhorn as the part-time pastor with extensive background in the PC(USA). Her roots are small town, small church, ecumenical and grounded in the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ. In 2018 she retired from active ministry to return full-time to her home in Longmont after several transitional ministry positions (Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and Illinois).  She spent some time figuring out the next chapter of life with her spouse of 47 years, Jay Kintzel, and did not anticipate accepting another position (and God laughed!).   Their son’s family (wife who is a Methodist pastor, a young teen and triplets age 10) also live in Longmont, and their daughter and family (with step-grandboys who live near them) are east of St. Louis.  Vickie’s education was at Coe (Cedar Rapids IA, PC(USA) related college), and San Francisco Theological Seminary in Marin County, CA. She looks forward to working together as we strengthen the mission heart at Buckhorn which is so apparent, into the future God is even now building on the past. To God be the Glory, now and forever!

Rev. Kathy LaRocque retired after 20 years in ministry.  She graduated from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary.  Received her doctorate in small church ministry from Union Seminary in Richmond VA.  Served churches in New York, Kentucky, Indiana and Nebraska.  She has two sons, two daughters and seven grandchildren.
