After a nationwide search, Denver Rescue Mission is pleased to announce the hiring of Chris Jorgensen as its new Chief Financial Officer.

“I’m very excited to have Chris join our team. He adds a tremendous amount of value to Denver Rescue Mission. All of our employees not only need to have big hearts that love God but embrace those we serve with Christ-like character,” President/CEO Brad Meuli said. “This is a unique time for those we welcome through our doors and Chris’ addition will be huge help in moving us forward with grace and courage.”

Most recently, Jorgensen worked as the Chief Operating Officer at YMCA of the Rockies after serving as that organization’s Chief Financial Officer since 2020.

Before his full-time role in Estes Park, he worked at One Child in Colorado Springs—a nonprofit organization devoted to helping children in poverty around the world. After serving as the Director of Finance from 2014-16, he was elevated to the Vice President of Operations and Finance in October 2016.

Jorgensen brings 15 years of nonprofit work in accounting, finance and leadership. He initially honed his skills as a Senior Audit Manager for a national CPA firm that serves faith-based organizations.

“I am excited to join the Denver Rescue Mission team as it seeks to change lives in the name of Christ. I believe that the Denver Rescue Mission is in a unique position to impact many lives in a very meaningful way. I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as CFO and excited to see what God has in store for the Denver Rescue Mission for many years to come.”

The native of nearby Littleton earned his Masters of Science in Organizational Leadership from the University of Denver in 2019. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Jamestown in Accounting and Business/Management. Jorgensen earned his Bachelor’s in 2006 from the North Dakota school.
