Rev. Collin Ross ~ Lead Pastor
Hey, I'm Collin Ross, and I came on board at Redeemer in November, 2017. Raised in the Baptist church, I have served and led in churches across the denomination spectrum before finding my "tribe" in the Anglian church. I love how our worship rehearses the gospel each and every week as we gather to praise the Lord, encounter him in his Word and at his table, and then are sent out to be the church in the world.
My wife, Melanie, and I are both graduates of the University of Georgia and Denver Seminary. I love board/card games, long hikes, and a black-and-blue burger with a side of sweet potato fries. More than anything I long to see lives and communities transformed by the gospel of Jesus and the movement of the Spirit. Most days you can find me at one of our local coffee shops. Come say hello!

She's led music in places like the local prison, the United States Senate and everywhere in between. She loves organizing a good hymn sing, reading sensational Victorian literature, and making soap (the kind your grandma used to make). Check out Rachel's music here.
