Pastors & Staff

Robbey Smith

Lead Pastor 

I am here to tell people about Jesus, love my wife, leave a legacy of faith in my family.  I do this by following Jesus, preaching the Bible, praying with complete strangers, and setting an example for my family to follow.  Of course that provides them lots of opportunity to give me grace. 

Robert Ward 

Worship Pastor

My main focus is to create an environment of genuine worship.  Each week I lead several teams that work together to deliver gospel centered congregational worship for our in person and online gatherings.  At Redemption, we practice many expressions of worship.  These include songs, prayer, giving, baptism and communion, to name a few.
