Nathaniel MacEachern

Xander has served at Redeemer since March 2023. With a passion for spiritual growth, he believes the greatest gift we have to offer others is our own transformation. He loves to invite each person to discover how deeply God loves them and to participate in the Kingdom of God through community, missions, and spiritual disciplines.  Married to Mokie, they have six children, and an understandable appreciation for coffee.

Josh grew up in the Ottawa area. After graduating from Tyndale University in Toronto with a BA In Biblical Studies & Theology, he came back to Ottawa and served as the youth pastor in his home church for 9 years. In January of 2024, he joined Redeemer as our Associate Pastor of Worship and Community Life. Ever since joining the worship team in high school Josh has had a heart to help others worship and follow Jesus in joy-filled authentic ways.  Josh enjoys reading, discussing faith/theology, is an avid soccer fan and loves a great cup of coffee. He is married to Stephanie and they have two beautiful daughters.

Nathaniel (Nat), has served at Redeemer starting June 2024, but has had a long history as a youth growing up at the church. Since his family moved here in 2005, (except for a short 3-year period in 2008-2011.) Redeemer has a huge part to play in Nat’s passions and personal life. This is where he met his wife, Kenzie, and where he learned of his passion for young people and children to hear and receive the Gospel. Nat will happily talk your ear off about any of his passions, Jesus, Star Wars, and 3D- printing, but he may need a nap after all that socializing.

Office Manager

Brad has been attending and serving in Redeemer Alliance Church since his first arrival in Ottawa in 2005, except for a three-year period he and his family were in England. In that time, he has been serving in life group leadership, missions, worship (sound, video, and livestreaming), facilities upkeep, and as a member of the Board of Elders. Retired from the Royal Canadian Navy, but still working as a public servant in DND, he volunteers as much time as possible to help build administrative and support structures at Redeemer that free the staff to focus on ministry rather than administration.
