Ewan Kennedy: Senior Pastor
Ewan was born and raised in Scotland, and worked in construction design and management before moving to the United States and becoming a pastor. Having grown up in a post-Christian country with a personally mixed relationship to the church, Ewan has a lot of sympathy for those who are skeptical of or have been burned by the church and organized religion. He began his ministry career as a pastoral counselor in a church plant and continues to be passionate about those areas and ministry dynamics. He will do almost anything for an espresso and chocolate.
Ewan and his wife Heather have three sons: Calvin, Cooper and Cannon.
Mike Sanders: Executive Pastor
Mike was born in Wheeling, West Virginia, but raised in Bethesda, Ohio. Having gone to school in Pennsylvania, he’s an avid Steelers fan. He likes movies, snow skiing, golf (although he is out of practice), and hanging out with friends.
Mike and his wife Trish have one son: Noah

Cory Sellers: Worship Director
Cory was born and raised in Auburn, Alabama and grew up playing music in church. He has been employed as a full time CPA, a full time musician, and now he's a full-time Worship Director. Cory even made it to Hollywood Week on American Idol Season 5. In all of these transitions, he has never wavered from God's call to use his musical gifts and passion for God's glory to lead others in worship. Cory enjoys working out with his kettlebells, eating Mexican food and pizza, and following Auburn football.
Cory and his wife Carrie enjoy life's simple pleasures: watching movies, hanging out with friends, and making up songs about their Yorkshire terrier, Pickles.
Jimmy Brock: Children’s Ministry Director
Jimmy grew up in Northern Virginia and then headed out to California for college. He and Suzanne got married right after he graduated and he taught high school math in inner-city Los Angeles for 3 years. During this time, his sense of calling to pastoral ministry only increased and he and Suzanne headed off to St. Louis with two small boys to attend Covenant Seminary. After four years of seminary and 2 more boys, having gone from east coast to west coast to mid-west, they headed south to come to Atlanta and Church of the Redeemer. Jimmy and Suzanne love to have people in their home, share food, games, and conversation, and watch football.
Don McCook: Churchwarden
After 30 years in education as a teacher and administrator, Don retired and accepted the position of Churchwarden in 2010. He has two degrees in music from Georgia State University and the University of Georgia, and in the past served as director of music for 10 years in a small Anglican congregation. Born to a Methodist minister and raised in Georgia, he feels a special attachment to Church of the Redeemer and its property, because his grandmother's family, the Trimbles, once owned the property (the house stood where Northside Hospital is now) over 100 years ago. Unfortunately, the family sold the property in the 1950's ; which explains why he is the Churchwarden and not the Bishop.
Jacob Feigl: Youth Ministry Director
Before moving to Kennesaw, GA in 2010, Jacob was born and raised in Chicago, IL, attended high school and college in Chattanooga, TN, and served a local church in Gulfport, MS from 2006-2010 where he was an assistant youth director. He is presently a student at the Reformed Theological Seminary. Jacob is an outdoorsman, an athlete, an artist, an actor, and an aspiring treasure hunter. Most of all he loves Jesus' Gospel and shares it with anyone who will listen.
Who We Are
This is where we tell you that we are the next, great, up-and-coming, full-service and exciting church in Atlanta!
Uh…right. Just one problem. We’re not.
What we ARE is a community of people looking for Jesus together. We are committed to worshiping God, loving each other well, serving and beautifying the city (primarily through commitments to mercy and to the arts) and communicating the liberating Gospel of God in Jesus....
