Bill Riedel, Lead Pastor 

What I do at Redemption Hill: My primary focus is vision, preaching, and leadership development. I love to see people thrive as they live out their passions, fueled by the gospel. 

A little about me: Alissa and I love DC and our family is deeply rooted here. Our kids have grown up on Capitol Hill. My Chicago roots still come through as a Cubs and Bears fan, but I cheer for the Nats, too. I love to cook and enjoy time with friends over good food and drink. 

Bill is the founding and lead pastor of Redemption Hill Church in Washington, DC. He was formally trained at Trinity International University (BA) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (MDiv), and has served in ministry since 1998. He serves the Acts 29 Network as the DC Area Director and on the A29 North Atlantic Leadership Team, as well as the board of the Eastern District Association of the EFCA.

Brian Kruzan, Assistant Pastor
Liturgy & Spiritual Formation

What I do at Redemption Hill: I focus on the worship and liturgical flow of our gatherings. I’m passionate about seeing my brothers and sisters grow in the gospel through music, prayer, and daily rhythms. 

A little about me: Tarra and I live in the Capitol Hill neighborhood with our two girls. We have fallen in love with DC and count exploring this city a tremendous privilege. I enjoy cheering on the Cubs, discovering new music, and relearning how to balance on a stand up paddle board each summer.

Jess Mitchell, Director of Operations

What I do at Redemption Hill: I oversee RHC's operations - coordinate volunteers, pay bills, update our database, schedule events, and make sure Sunday services happen smoothly so people can focus on Jesus. 

A little about me: I've lived in DC for almost a decade but my native Arizona blood means I'm usually cold. I stay warm by running, taking pictures, or eating anything topped with a fried egg. I met and married Jordan at RHC and we're excitedly pursuing adoption to grow our family here in DC.

Elders

It all starts with Jesus. He is the Head of His Church. The rest of us are Christians who love Him and follow Him. We have formal leadership structures that advance Jesus' mission among His people. These include Elders, Deacons, and Members. The senior leadership of Redemption Hill Church is vested in the Elders, men who are both paid and unpaid Pastors and Elders who follow the leading of Jesus who is the Senior Pastor. To be considered as an elder, a man must have been called by God into leadership at Redemption Hill Church and be a man of the highest Christian character according to the qualifications of Scripture. The Elders lead and care for our members and set the vision for RHC.

Titus 2 Team 

Throughout its history, the church has recognized that women have particular gifts with which to serve the body of Christ. Redemption Hill Church has formed a team of spiritually mature, godly women. They assist the pastors and elders, particularly in their pastoral care for the women of Redemption Hill Church. This group is called the Titus 2 Team. For more on the Titus 2 Team, watch this Ask Pastor Bill video
