Originally from Los Angeles, Joel, Christy and their 2 girls moved to Thunder Bay in 2013 to join the Redwood community. He loves leading our church and staff team and is always up for a new adventure. He absolutely enjoys winter, especially in February …
Mark hails from the great state of Michigan. He is married to Karen and they have three grown up kids. He pretends to be an extrovert but don’t be fooled, he loves a quiet night at home cheering on all Detroit sports teams
Originally from Sioux Lookout. Loves his wife, Adrienne. A huge fan of loud music, biking, snowboarding and chasing students around the church. Jesse’s energy and passion for life and ministry is contagious to everyone around him!
Andrea’s passion is leading our church into meaningful, engaged worship. She loves coffee, 90’s R&B music, and is a self-diagnosed “foodie”. When she’s not singing and leading our worship teams, she is helping people connect and find their place within our Redwood community.
Christy is a beach girl from California at heart who loves a good throwback soundtrack, Mexican food (extra guac, please), & cool shoes. She is passionate about reaching the people of this amazing city for Jesus, and has a heart for creating a community where people can live life to the fullest.
Katelyn is in year 3 of a 3 year apprenticeship. Half of Katelyn’s time is spent working with Jesse running our Jr. High ministry and the other half is spent studying and working towards her Bachelor of Theology in Youth Ministry
A Thunder Bay girl, born & raised, Kim keeps our office organized and efficient and is the very proud mother of two awesome teenagers who constantly keep her on her toes. Kim takes her coffee black and is rarely seen without a smile on her face!
Andri grew up at Redwood and will be playing key roles in several ministry areas this year – in both weekend and midweek programs across Kid’s and Youth Ministries. He is looking forward to learning and growing in his leadership this year and we are excited to have him on the team! Andri loves to be active and get outdoors as much as possible.
Steph is from Lurgan, Northern Ireland, and has joined our team for a 1-year internship. She is a vocalist and will be leading worship alongside Andrea and our worship teams. Steph listens to alot of music in her spare time and has been enjoying all the beautiful scenery and outdoors that Thunder Bay has to offer!
