HALEY BLACK

Grade School Co-Lead

About Haley

Hometown: Littleton, CO
Currently Reading: Short Stories and Novellas by Leo Tolstoy
Englewood Favorite: Mango Tree Coffee

Haley is an almost-Colorado-native and a recent graduate from Denver Seminary with an M.A. in Biblical & Theological Studies. She loves all things English: literature, journalism, creative writing, editing, and teaching ESL. She’s always reading (or listening to) at least four books at once, and is a wannabe writer, photographer, and boulderer. Hoping to mix all of her passions, she plans to minister to high school students as a missionary and English Language teacher in Central Europe where God has vastly been forgotten.

Acknowledging the seeds that were planted attending Sunday school a handful of times as a child, Haley hopes to plant the same seeds of Jesus’ truth and love in the elementary classroom at The Sacred Grace.

Technical Director

About Devin

Hometown: Highlands Ranch, CO
Currently Reading: Analog Church by Jay Y. Kim
Englewood Favorite: Flying kites at the park
Devin often finds himself connecting people and being a bridge between communities. In fact, he grew up building with K’NEX (ask him about the mars rover). After college, he moved to the Englewood area. He and his wife Gaby currently live near Rotolo Park and love running into people around the city (and at parks) and inviting people into their lives and home. He is a software engineer by trade, loves to learn, has a few creative outlets including making music, crafting delectable food, and engineering.
Devin loves to help the church grow in love for God, God’s Word, God’s people of every ethnicity and culture, and God’s purposes in the world (language he learned from InterVarsity while in college). Over the years he’s done that through worship leading, serving others locally and internationally, asking questions, thinking about what it means to be followers of Christ in community, and generally being an overachiever.

About Gaby

Hometown:

Englewood Favorite:

Gaby grew up in Colorado after moving from Chihuahua, Mexico with her family to Denver when she was a year and a half old. She loves learning about language, biology and the lovely things that make life sparkle. As a child (and sometimes even now), she could be found making mud pies, drawing, playing violin and exploring with all her senses. She discovered a love of teaching and learning with preschool kids at Red Rocks Church in 2014 and has loved interacting with kids since then and at different churches in Englewood for the last few years. Gaby is a social introvert that loves to dance when no one is looking.

Gaby moved to Englewood when she married Devin in 2020 and joined The Sacred Grace team as the Nursery Director and to help welcome the Spanish-speaking community as she hopes to reconnect with her Hispanic heritage. Gaby and Devin love creating new desserts, hosting family and friends in their home, and planning all the travel they will enjoy together to visit  international friends and family if the Lord allows.

Interim Worship Director

About Sunny

Hometown: Claremont, CA
Currently Reading: White Teeth by Zadie Smith
Englewood Favorite: The giant concrete mushrooms in Romans Park (it’s a love-hate relationship)
Sunny’s name reflects her upbringing in Southern California, where she developed a deep-seated love for boba milk tea and the vastness of the ocean. When she was 15, she began leading worship in a renovated garage for the youth group in her Chinese-immigrant church. Since then, she has enjoyed singing in an all-women acapella group in Haverford College, where she graduated with a B.A. in Race and Immigration History. After college, she helped start a worship team for a church plant in Singapore, before moving to Denver to pursue a career in Visual Arts Education.
Currently, Sunny works as an art teacher at William Smith High School in Aurora, where she teaches watercolor, acrylic painting, calligraphy, observational drawing, and portraiture. Sunny cares deeply about creating spaces for unique and underrepresented voices to express themselves through the arts.
Outside of music and art, Sunny enjoys hiking with her husband, watching reruns of the Great British Baking Show and trying different street foods around the world.
