Kathy Escobar

Kathy is co-pastor The Refuge, an eclectic beautiful faith community in North Denver, juggles 5 kids & an awesome husband who has a bunch of jobs, too.

She's an advocate for friends in hard places, a trained spiritual director (one who’s a little on the loud side) & loves to teach and facilitate events, workshops, and groups.  She writes a little, hangs out with people a lot, and teaches college classes online because missional living doesn’t pay the bills.

These all blend together and make for one messy life in the trenches with people.

She's most passionate about community, the marginalized, healing, spiritual transformation, equality, justice, “church”, relationships, diversity, and learning to love and be loved.

Faith Shift


Finding your way forward with Kathy Escobar.

Faith Shift


How do we find our way forward when everything we once believed starts to come apart?

You Can't Manage Resurrection


Coming back to life after a faith shift looks different for all of us.

Signs of Life


What happens when our old spiritual tricks stop working but we’re desperate for signs of Life?

Hope Rises Up Regardless


A little belief goes a long way.

Hearing The Call


When our faith unravels, we lose a lot, but death is part of resurrection.
