Our Leaders

Sam & Darlene Farlow

I am Pastor Shannon Popp, and I am married to my beautiful wife Ginger; we have two daughters and a son. I am a native to Colorado and love serving God in the area He planted our family 140 years ago. As someone who preaches to both the studious Christian, and those seeking Jesus, I strive to bring the accuracies of God’s Word on the weekend into our weekly realities by using metaphors and stories that create readiness that nudge people to a receptive insight and the transforming truth of the Gospel.

My Hope for South Holly is that we would be a family of men and women who know and worship the One True Triune God rightly, that we would walk hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder together and view this world through the eyes of our Creator, and work together on mission with Jesus Christ in compassion, mercy and grace to carry one another’s burdens and reach lost people in our city.

I am Pastor Sam Farlow and my wife, Darlene, and I have been married for 44 years and have 4 grown children and 12 grandchildren. We are originally from Illinois and have served as a Missionary Pastor and wife in establishing 3 new churches and restoring 3 churches back to self-supporting status. I now serve at South Holly and have also pastored in 4 states prior to coming to CO. We are enjoying Colorado and Coloradans immensely! I enjoy sports and I play on an over-50 softball league every summer. My wife, Darlene, works as a Special Education Paraeducator at a day school within Children’s Hospital and enjoys speaking Spanish when she gets the opportunity to do so.

After over 20 years in the secular workforce, God called me, Pastor Rod Henderson and my wife, Susan, to serve in Portugal from 2009 to 2018 as ABWE missionaries. In 2018, God called us to minister at South Holly Baptist where I am serving on the pastoral staff. We have been married for 32 years, are originally from Michigan, and have 3 grown children and 1 grandchild. My training as an engineer and project manager have greatly helped in ministries in Portugal and now in Colorado. My wife, Susan, uses her training and gifts to serve in the church as well. We both have a great love for people and we count it a privilege to serve full-time at South Holly.

Dale & Martha Payne

I am Pastor Dale Payne, and I serve on the pastoral staff South Holly. My wife, Martha, and I served as missionaries in Brazil for over 40 years before retiring here in Colorado. We have 2 married sons in the states and a single daughter who still serves faithfully in Brazil. Although lingering health issues have slowed our pace a bit, we still have a great love for missions and keep in close contact with missionaries around the world. We count it a great privilege to pray not only for missions around the world but also for South Holly.

Loving God. Loving People.
