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.
Phil Maucieri, Worship Leader
What I do at Redemption Hill: Liturgy writing and service design as well as guiding and equipping the RHC Worship Team in leading congregational singing each week.
A little about me: I live on Capitol Hill (H Street Corridor) with my wife, Rachel, and two kids. Most days are spent wrangling toddlers, walking our neighborhood, enjoying a cup of coffee, and playing an occasional game of ice hockey. I have been leading congregational worship since college. I started my journey into music as a 15 year old punk/hardcore kid swinging a stratocaster...haven’t changed much since.
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 7 years but still have Arizona blood so 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.
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.
