Tanner Sheahan

Lead Pastor

Family: I’ve been married to Gayle for 19 years and we have four kids: Kaed, Maggie, Claire, and Charlie.

Hobbies/Interests: plants and bonsai

Favorite Books: Boy, only 3? Shaped by the Gospel by Timothy Keller, East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Recapturing the Wonder by Mike Cosper.

Heart for the Lord: I love Jesus, my family and the local church, specifically Christ Church. One of my great joys is seeing the gospel take root and change people for the glory of God and their eternal good. I’ve served as a pastor since 2016 and a church planter since 2018 with missional and discipleship efforts in the local church going back over a decade.

Gayle Sheahan


Family: Tanner and I will have been married for 20 years this next August (2023)! We have 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, ages ranging from 13 to 7.

Hobbies/Interests: In my spare time I really enjoy family walks with our dog, going for a run, coffee dates with friends, and I love to watch my kids in sports!

Favorite Books:  I do enjoy reading and hope to do more of that in the future! I’m currently reading Jen Oshman’s book “Cultural Counterfeits” and it’s great. One of my all time favorites that we have read with our kids over and over is “The Jesus Storybook Bible”. It has such beautifully written truths for kids AND adults, Tanner and I both tear up when we read it with the kids! Also, anything written by Ray or Jani Ortlund is gold!

Heart for the Lord:  I am truly thankful to get to serve with the people of Christ Church. I love to meet new people and to work toward making our space welcoming and comfortable. It is my joy to be part of a team who gets to do that each Sunday! Serving the Lord by serving His church is truly sweet. He is so good!

Adam Lange

Worship Leader

Family: Osa and I got married in August of 2019 and we have our first baby on the way early November 2022.

Hobbies/Interest: Osa and I both like to play a lot of golf when the weather permits. When it doesn’t, I turn to the ever-growing Lego collection

Favorite Books: My favorite books at the moment are Recapturing the Wonder by Mike Cosper, The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis, and The Stranger by Albert Camus.

Heart for the Lord: I’m a classic case of “grew up in the church, accepted Jesus at 5 because I was afraid of hell, experienced some stuff that made me leave, came back when I heard and believed the gospel”. Even though I accepted Jesus at a very young age, I never really understood what that meant and the very impactful freedom that comes with it until fall of 2017 when the gospel was clearly and truthfully articulated to me. One thing that has never changed since 2005 when I frist led some songs at youth group, is my love and gratitude for being able to assist in the facilitation of worship to our Creator.

Kim Rainey


Family: I’ve been married to my best friend, Kevin, since June 2002! It’s just the two of us and our much loved yellow lab, Silas.

Hobbies/Interests: Being a part of teen evangelism doesn’t leave much time for hobbies but when I do get a minute I enjoy spending time with family, camping (really glamping), picking huckleberries, and bowling.

Favorite Books: Some of my favorite books are God Wrote A Book by James MacDonald & The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller &  Lies Women Believe and The Truth That Sets Them Free by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. I also enjoy leading teen girl studies going through the book Lies Young Women Believe And The Truth That Sets Them Free by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth & Dannah Gresh.

Heart for the Lord: I’m so thankful for God’s grace, forgiveness, and patience in my life. It’s fun & such a blessing to serve Christ Church with the gifts He has given me.

Favorite Books: Risen Motherhood by Emily Jensen & Laura Wifler. Jen Wilkin Bible Studies and let’s be honest any Francine Rivers book.
