Redeemer is governed by a team of leaders nominated by our nominating committee from recommendations from the congregation. The Lead Pastor is also a permanent member of the Leadership Team. Team members serve 3 year terms and are staggered so that a couple members roll off each calendar year.
Our Nominating Committee has selected nominees to serve on the Leadership Team and Nominating Committee beginning January 1, 2020. A congregational meeting will be held Sunday, November 24 following the 11:00am service to vote on these individuals.
