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.
Jeremy Shelley - Family Life Pastor
Jeremy is a native Texan, but don’t hold that against him. As the Family Life Pastor, Jeremy gets to live out his passion of seeing families thrive in their faith. He enjoys finding new adventures to go on with his wife Alexis and his three children, Lofton, Lillian, and Lorelei.
Wendy Adelmann - Creative & Counseling Pastor
Wendy enjoys people. She values helping others see their strengths and how they can connect with God more. Wendy oversees creative elements of the church and the Thrive Counseling and Coaching Center, where she is also a counselor. Her favorite things are spending time with her husband of 34 years and her 3 adults kids, hiking and kayaking, and relaxing with friends.

He and his wife, Tiana, love the community and friendships they’ve made while serving together at Quest.
Tiana Barnes - Worship Leader
Tiana is a born and raised Ohio gal and loves it. She’s enjoyed exploring all it has to offer with her family growing up. Her best friend Daniel taught her guitar back in 2010 and she’s never put it down. Now as one of Quest’s worship leaders, she loves leading the congregation in musical worship, declaring God’s goodness in the midst of uncertain times. Tiana is a high school history teacher and is still exploring new places to travel to with her now husband, Daniel.
Missy Miller - Office Administrator & Facility Scheduler
Missy serves as the Office Administrator and Facility Scheduler. She has a husband and 3 kids who keep her busy, as she has been homeschooling for ten years. Now that her kids are getting older, Missy decided to enter the workforce again part time. She enjoys cheering for her 3 favorite football teams: The Ohio State Buckeyes, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Columbus Crusaders, where her daughter Eliana is a varsity cheerleader, her son Braden plays middle school football and son Lucas plays flag football and basketball.
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!
Luke Chiocca - Sound Production
Luke is a music composer and local creative who serves on the sound production team at Quest.
