Todd Lanting

Bible Teacher, Grade 8

Todd's extensive experience in ministry, education and legal practice help students of The Upper School delve deeper into God's amazing word. As their Bible teacher, his passion is to help ignite and fan into flame each student's love of God and love of others.
Todd arrived on Faculty at CHC in 2019 after serving for five years as Head of School at Denver Christian. He also has served as Lead Pastor of West Bowles Community Church in Littleton, a teacher of junior and senior high school Bible students at Front Range Christian and executive director of That the World May Know Ministries. Before focusing on ministry and Christian education, Todd practiced law in Denver as a trial attorney.
For more than 20 years, Todd has led springtime study trips to Israel and invites CHC students, families and fellow Faculty and Staff members to travel with him there each spring.
Todd earned a bachelor's degree from Hope College in Holland, Mich.; a juris doctorate from Indiana University School of Law; and master's degree in Divinity from Denver Seminary. He is absolutely thrilled to be back in the classroom, this time walking alongside CHC's incredible students during such a coming-of-age time in their lives.
Todd and his wife Jill have three children: Ben, a professional golfer; Dani, a math teacher at Valor Christian High School; and Pete, a senior Criminal Justice major at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix.
One of Todd’s favorite Bible passages is Jeremiah 20:9: “But if I say, ‘I will not mention His word or speak anymore in His name,’ His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot."
