Kyle & Michelle Kostreva
Dakota & Rachael Woodie
Kyle and Michelle Kostreva started their work with Master Plan Ministries in Durango at separate times after college, but jointly in 1990. They loved working with the students at Fort Lewis College for the next four years. In 1994, Kyle and Michelle sensed God calling them to expand MPM to the college campus in Grand Junction. After pioneering the ministry at CMU, they have seen many people come to know Christ and grow in their walk with God, including athletes, music majors, teachers, law enforcement & military, and nursing students. The Kostrevas directed the ministry at Colorado Mesa University for 23 years. They love the privilege of sharing the truth and freedom of the gospel, helping believers grow in their walk with God, and having the honor of sending them on, to all parts of the world. They are once again serving at Fort Lewis College, now as the Campus Directors. They will continue to serve a “flexible” role for Master Plan Ministries by developing and coaching current staff teams, helping in bookkeeping and facilities, and developing MPM’s ministries internationally & with marriages. The Kostrevas enjoy being in the outdoors or playing games as a family. Kyle & Michelle counted their four children as their primary disciples, so it is a privilege to see them in various forms of ministry: in the workplace, community, legislative, and full-time.

He is an adventure hound who loves to use this his passion for the outdoors, mainly rock climbing, to connect and share the message of Christ. He enjoys living life with others, walking with them to glorify God. Rachael grew up on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawai’i, where she lived until she transferred to Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO her second year of college. She graduated from Fort Lewis in December 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies. Rachael loves the outdoors, especially surfing, hiking, rock climbing, camping, and swimming.
