April Perez

Communications & Administrative Assistant


April has spent her entire adult life working in various areas of customer service, client relations, communications, leadership, and management. While she enjoys empowering her teams to grow into their potential, it became clear that remaining in the corporate world was not what God was calling her to do in this season of life.

 April is the proud mom to McKenzi and Marek and the jelly to JT Slivka’s peanut butter. She has lived in Colorado Springs since 1997 and grew up in the church. While not always the prettiest journey, April’s love of God is rooted deeply in His amazing love and grace. April and her family have attended Family of Christ since September 2022 and immediately felt at home. April knows without a doubt that the Lord has placed a calling on her life and she is so excited to serve God’s calling in this ministry. 

 In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, organizing my pantry, making JT move furniture around the house, and “treasure hunting” thrift store shopping.
