Pastor Katrina and her husband Bryant Keefe grew up on Gunstock Mountain, learning to ski and snowboard as kids. Katrina started pastoring Lakes Region Vineyard Church: Wolfeboro, a site church to Lakes Region Vineyard Church in Laconia, in 2013. That same year her and Bryant met while they both worked at Gunstock. In the summer of 2020 an idea began to take shape after attending an on mountain worship service at Loon Mountain Ministry in Lincoln New Hampshire. They asked the question "Could we do something like this at Gunstock?" With a love for Jesus, a heart for the Gilford community where they live, and a life built around the lake and the mountains, it felt like a perfect dream. With the help of Marcus Corey, Pastor at Loon Mountain Ministry, Mark Petrozzi, local ski patrol and friend, the leadership of Lakes Region Vineyard Church, and the Multiply Vineyard crew, and the thumbs up from Tom Day, General Manager of Gunstock Mountain, the question turned from
"Could we..." to "When do we start?"
