Minister of Music: Roxanne Wank 

Roxie serves as the Minister of Music at Christ our Redeemer. Like St. Timothy, the genuine faith that lives within Roxie dwelt first in her mother and grandmothers. These devout Christian women grounded her young soul in the faith. It is to them she owes an immense and unpayable debt of gratitude. God's Holy Scripture being placed in her heart and mind as a child has given formation to her character. At age 10, God blessed her with the gift of musicianship. Playing music and singing praises to the Lord and Savior brings enormous joy into her life. Her Christian journey has led her to Christ our Redeemer to play guitar, sing, and lead the worship team. Roxie's prayer is that her witness through music will incline others to follow Jesus Christ. She would like the hope, joy, and peace of Christianity expressed through music to touch the listener's heart in a beautiful way.
