The COSILoveYou podcast creates intersections between the church and the city in and around the Pikes Peak region. Each month, COSILoveYou hosts conversations with civic, business, and faith leaders on issues and subjects impacting people in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. We aim to convene leaders in ways that establish collaborative partnerships, so that the faith community can be our city's greatest contributor to human flourishing.
Local Schools & Local Churches
This month, our COSILoveYou Podcast builds from last month’s episode by taking a look at what two local churches are doing to impact and support nearby schools. Rocky Mountain Calvary and Colorado Christian Fellowship - two very different churches in different parts of Colorado Springs - each have unique approaches to their support of a neighborhood public school, and different stories to tell. Join us as we talk about what works, what doesn’t, and why it matters.
Why Investing in Schools Matters
This episode of the COSILoveYou podcast features Tracey Beal, Founder & CEO of SchoolConnect, a Phoenix, Arizona-based nonprofit that has created innovative partnerships that support hundreds of local schools across the state of Arizona. Starting with just a handful of schools and partners, SchoolConnect is changing the outcomes for education in Phoenix and beyond, and COSILoveYou has begun a formal partnership with SchoolConnect to bring that same model to Colorado Springs. Find out more about why partnership with local schools might be the best way for churches, businesses, and other organizations to affect their community’s future.
Mental Health In The Church
This is the final episode of our 4-part series on the state of mental health in our community. This month, we focus on mental health in the church and look at the ways pastors might be facing their own challenges, as well as what, where, and how churches can be engaging in this conversation more fully. Join our guests Dr. Eric Sandras and Wade Brown, as we get both a broad and narrow perspective on this challenging issue in our local churches.
Mental Health In The Workplace
In this episode, we speak with three local leaders who represent various sectors of the marketplace, all of whom have a passion for seeing mental health support increase for both employees and owners. Join the conversation with Betsy Brown, Deb Mahan, and Daniel Campana as we explore the intricacies of dealing with mental health in the workplace, and the roles that the local church can play in being a supportive option for people who are struggling in their vocations.
Mental Health In The Home
In this episode, we continue our focus on mental health, turning our attention to how it shows up in homes and families. We sit down with two practitioners who come at their work from different backgrounds and tragedies, but who have allowed their own stories of pain to direct them to intentional, creative approaches to supporting people struggling with mental illness. We also discuss how the home environment contributes to or undermines mental health.
Teen Suicide, Mental Health, and Resilience (Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention & Soul Shop)
As many residents of Colorado Springs are aware, El Paso County has experienced uncommonly high rates of teen death-by-suicide over the last 10 years. While much progress has been made to stem this alarming trend, the efforts have also uncovered hidden and complex causes underlying the thought patterns in the lives of our young people. Join us for this first of four-part mini-series on the challenges and complexities of mental health in the Pikes Peak region, with guests David Galvan and Cassandra Walton.

Important For Community
I am so thankful to have found this podcast. I am planning to relocate to Colorado Springs after feeling called to serve in that community. This podcast covers important topics in the Colorado Springs community and provides opportunities for people to serve and love on those around them who may be hurting and in need of a helping hand. This is what we were designed to do as humans… especially those of us who are Christ followers.
