Elementary & Volunteer Coordinator
Caleigh is our Elementary & Volunteer Coordinator. Her three passions in life are the Lord, children, and the performing arts. She grew up in Nashville, TN and moved to NYC after graduating from Belmont University with a BFA in Musical Theatre. From there, she had the privilege of spending several years traveling the world as an actor/singer/dancer. While performing in New Orleans, she met her husband, Robert. Together they uprooted back to NYC, and Caleigh began teaching the performing arts to children in after-school programs across Manhattan. Caleigh has volunteered for several children's ministries throughout most of her life and is thrilled to be a part of the East Side Children's Ministry. She aims to instill in each child the desire to reflect Christ's love everyday. In her spare time, Caleigh loves to sing in the Young New Yorkers' Chorus, study French and travel with family.
Sunday Service and Generosity Director
Liz began attending Redeemer in 2010 and instantly knew that she had found her church home. In 2013 she joined Redeemer staff and has enjoyed every moment since! On Sunday you will often find her outside the sanctuary where the volunteers sign in. If you visit her, she will give you gum! Liz was a Spanish major in college which required that she study abroad in Mexico (for one semester), but she loved it so much that she ended up staying for six years teaching English as a foreign language, studying for her master’s in applied linguistics, and enjoying all the culinary wonders that Mexico has to offer. Liz spends her free time listening to podcasts, playing touch football, cooking, and studying the map of Astoria, where she she lives, in hopes of one day mastering her navigation of 23rd Street, 23rd Road, 23rd Avenue and 23rd Drive.
Children's Ministry Administrative Coordinator
Born and bred in the panhandle of Florida, Brandon studied Accounting and Finance at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama before completing his M.Div. from Beeson Divinity School. While volunteering with a local college ministry in Birmingham, he realized that Jesus being raised from the dead is truly Good News for our weary world and not just good advice. When he’s not working, you can find him reading, spending time with friends, or working out.
Youth and Young Adult Formation Manager
Judson spent his earliest years in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago before moving to Connecticut, where he grew up in the shadow of New York City. Though he’s always loved New York, Judson returned to the Chicago suburbs to study Christian Education & Ministry at Wheaton College. He’s had the privilege of ministering in such dissimilar contexts as Greenwich, CT and Tulsa, OK — experiencing firsthand that the Gospel truly is good news for all. Judson loves long conversations around a fire, losing himself in an art museum, playing tennis at the beach, and falling into a good book.

By August of that year he had found one of his favorite jobs – working the Children's Ministry front desk at Redeemer WS. After working with the LSQ site from 2017-2020, Iain has now come aboard to do one of his favorite things: show how the love of God and His Word brings true justice and joy to all peoples.

She moved to New York City after college to study neuroscience but will readily admit that her Ph.D. is the third best thing that happened in the city, after Redeemer and her husband Topher.
