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 soon to be daughter-in-law Cara.
