Meet our High School Youth Leaders
Charles Amis has been attending Redeemer for 4 years and has become an increasingly active member, even serving on staff as the interim program assistant for the past year. When he's not working at the church, he is running his own game development company from home. He will also be teaching computer science part time at the Baldwin School in the fall, where he lives with his wife, Rebecca, and their two month old son, James. Charles is especially excited about reading and discussing the Bible with Redeemer Youth. His own reading of it is the primary catalyst for his faith and he believes that can be true for the Redeemer Youth as well when read closely, prayerfully, and in context with the whole.
Rebecca Northington has been a member of Redeemer since the late 1970's, or in better terms, most of her life. She has four children, ages 144, and has been working with kids as a teacher, coach or counselor for almost 20 years. She is excited to be involved with the youth at Redeemer because of the huge impact RYG had on her teenage years. She says, “I am grateful to be able to pay that back and to grow myself through the experiences and perspectives that innately come with young minds and energy!”
David Randolph is a retired Philadelphia teacher, and has been a member of The Redeemer for the past five years. A father of two and grandfather of seven, David has been active in outreach programs, such as Food for Friends Youth, St. Gabriel's Saturday Luncheon, and most recently, St. Gabriel’s City Camp. He regards outreach and mission programs as kinesthetic forms of prayer.
Alexis Stephan is a mom of three girls, Olivia 9, Kate 7 and Caroline 4. She has attended Redeemer for 9 years and all three of her daughters were baptized here and 2 sing in choir. She is a pediatric intensivist at CHOP and loves working with kids. She say, “I am excited about working with Redeemer Youth because of the important role adults have played in my life during my youth and adolescence providing mentorship and friendship.”
Bill Susskind has been a part of the Church of the Redeemer since his childhood. His mother and late father were members here. Currently, Bill's oldest daughter, Paige, attends Gettysburg and sang in the choir and went on many Dominican Republic Youth Mission Trips. His daughter, Rebecca, is a junior verger and chorister. Bill has been leading youth adventures for over ten years including mission trips to New Orleans, Navajoland, and the Dominican Republic. He loves to see how youth change and mature during their time at Redeemer.
Carter Williams has been attending Redeemer all of his life! He and his wife, Ginny, met in the Redeemer Youth program. His son, Cal, attends Haverford School and his daughter, Cheney attends Agnes Irwin. Both kids are active in the acolyte program. Carter cherishes his experiences as a youth at Redeemer and looks forward to building relationships with youth and having lots of fun in the process.
