Redeemer Staff

About Our Staff

Our staff are devoted Christ followers and dedicated servant leaders in the Redeemer family. Get to know them better below!

Shannon V. Trenton, Pastor

Pastor Shannon is a lay pastor appointed to Church of the Redeemer in July 2016. Her passions are innovative worship, radical evangelism, and Christ-centered justice, which she is excited to guide in our small but mighty congregation. When she is not here, Pastor Shannon is studying at MTSO in Delaware, Ohio for her Master of Divinity with a specialization in Interreligious Studies. We welcome her, her husband Brian, and their two children Arthur and Zara to the Redeemer family.


Sandy VerDuin, Secretary

Sandy has been a vital force in the Redeemer office since she began in 2014. She offers a friendly point of welcome to members, guests, and the outside groups that call the Redeemer community their home. She is also the administrative mastermind behind most of the church bulletin boards and all of our printed materials.


Shanelle Cook, Music Director

Shanelle’s inspiration guides the worship at Redeemer. An accomplished music teacher, Shanelle brings her gifts to Sunday worship and direction of the Redeemer choir. She selects our music to align with Scripture, sermon, and season, and her talented performances are a gift to all who attend.


Eddie Bornds, Custodian

Eddie’s hard work provides the backbone for the events and ministries at Church of the Redeemer. He keeps the facility and grounds clear, clean, and safe for all who walk through our doors. He goes above and beyond to make our Sanctuary shine week after week, and his upbeat attitude makes every visitor feel like they are already family.
