Dan Seale, Senior Pastor
Dan and his family moved to Raleigh in August of 2006 from Alabama where he served as a senior pastor for eight years. He is a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (he still misses the cheese steaks) and James Madison University in Virginia. Dan enjoys good food, good movies, good books, anything chocolate, the outdoors and being with his wife, Debbi, and four daughters. He loves ACC basketball and the month of March and also enjoys SEC Football.
Brad Rogers, Associate Pastor
Brad and his family moved to Raleigh in June 2011 from Lexington, KY where Brad served as the Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) campus minister at the University of Kentucky (UK) for 7 years. He is a graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO and the University of Kentucky. Brad met the love of his life while in college and married Rachel while in grad school at UK in November of 1999. Together they have 3 children who don’t believe in dull moments. In April of 2016 they suffered from a temporary bout of insanity and added a puppy named Mocha into their chaos at home. Brad has seldom met a sport or competition that he did not like; currently he is struggling to figure out how to make a small white ball go into a hole several hundred yards away by striking said ball a limited number of times with a set of outrageously priced sticks (he is not good as Sean is at this, but he enjoys trying anyway)
Rachel Rogers, Children's Ministry Coordinator
Rachel joined Redeemer’s staff to help coordinate the army of volunteers who do the work of children’s ministry. When she is not working to serve the children and families of Redeemer, she can be found at home working out life with her husband, Brad, their 3 children and 1 puppy-in-training. She enjoys good books (with or without pictures), good coffee, and good friends.
Sean Scott, Student Ministry Assistant
Sean came on staff as our part-time youth ministry assistant in May of 2016. He is also a full-time student working to complete his degree in mass communications through ECU’s online program. Sean first heard about Redeemer through Julie who he met while working together with kids at the Finley YMCA and subsequently married. He enjoys playing golf (he’s slightly better than Brad), watching Premier League soccer, reading Lord of the Rings over and over and keeping their dog Beau from eating all their best shoes. Sean’s heart for the Lord and our youth shines through in all he does and we are pleased to have him as a part of our team at Redeemer.
Renee Smith, Office Administrator
Renee moved to Raleigh in 2000 from the Detroit area, in search of better weather. She loves NC; and in 2014, she met and married her husband, Steve. They fostered four teenage girls during their first few years of marriage. These days she loves spending time with her husband and their friends, breaking bread together. She is thankful to serve with the staff at Redeemer. At home, you can usually find her reading, writing, walking, eating Kit-Kats, or playing ping-pong.
Lorie Schiess, Financial Administrator
Lorie Schiess came on staff part-time in April 2018 as a bookkeeper. She graduated from The University of Central Florida with a business administration degree. When she’s not working, she can be found at home with her husband, with her children, or her grandson.
Lacey Komis, Virtual Assistant
Lacey and her husband (Josh) married in 2012 and moved to NC later that same year for Josh to attend seminary. They fell in love with the area and have no desire to move back up north. They welcomed a little boy into their family in 2015 and another little boy in 2017. Josh is a Student Pastor at a church in Apex, so they are active in their church ministry as well as trying to keep up with their children. They love spending time together as a family, reading, and taking trips to the beach. Lacey is thankful for the opportunity to work with Redeemer virtually.
