Ross Adelmann - Lead Pastor

Ross’ journey has taken him from Minnesota to every one of the ‘O’ states. He describes himself as an “_ucks” fan—Ducks before Bucks. As the lead pastors, Ross loves seeing people connecting to God, discovering how God wired them to make a difference, and living in the joy of deep friendships. In his free time, he loves hiking, kayaking, wildlife, mountains, and oceans—especially when he gets to enjoy those things with Wendy and their grown children, Derek, Elise, Jared, and their daughter-in-law, Cara.

Pauli Rancourt - Financial Coordinator

Pauli hails from Northern Minnesota and joins Quest staff remotely, working “in the cloud” from her home office where she enjoys an empty nest with her husband Jim. The nest has frequent visitors (4 adult children and 4 grandchildren), and Pauli enjoys working part-time with numbers and caring for her grandchildren part-time, as well. Her background includes non-profit administration and cloud bookkeeping, which is what drew her to Quest. When circumstances allow, Pauli and Jim can be found walking the rugged, majestic Oregon and Washington beaches, their favorite of God’s natural creations!
