Our team of staff and leaders at Redmond UMC takes great pride in serving compassionately, as we walk alongside our community. Below are some of our leaders who hold formal roles within our church.

We value the safety of all who walk in our doors. Each member of staff - and many of our leaders and volunteers - have been trained by MinistrySafe.
