Mary Jane (Janie) Atwood graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1977 and served as a Naval Officer for five years. She met Bob while in the Navy and they were married in 1979. They have five adult children and thirteen (soon to be fourteen) grandchildren. Janie was raised Roman Catholic and Bob was raised Presbyterian. They wanted to find a church where they could grow in faith, and both feel at home. They found that in the Anglican Tradition. God called them to serve as missionaries and in 1994 they took their five teen and pre-teen kids to serve on a church planting team in Tegucigalpa, Honduras for six years. Bob and Janie started their marriage in Virginia Beach and after twenty-eight years of various moves they returned to the area to be close to grandchildren and children. They have been members of Christ the Redeemer since 2011 and Janie has served as Treasurer since mid-2015.

I have been at CTR since August 2016. I am a Port Engineer for a navy destroyer as my day job. My family is wife Diane, son Nathanael (24), and daughter Elise(23). I like to scuba dive and study the Bible with people learning more about Jesus. The website brought me to CtR and the faithfulness to the Gospel keeps me here.
Rachel Inman, Council Member
Married to Daniel Inman
Children; Samantha Jo (14) Ethan Alexander (11)
We joined CtR in 2015. We were seeking a church that was scripture-based and focused on community discipleship; we found our home at CtR quickly. What we love about CtR is the weekly community groups, desire for growing God’s Kingdom and the authentic people that make up our church body.
What my week looks like right now? I’m a Home Loan Advisor | Mortgage Loan Officer; I get to help people buy homes, refinance, and make great long term financial decisions. I also get to help care for several family members in addition to my own family, which is full of sweet hugs from a 3 year old niece, snuggles from a 1 year niece and answering so many questions of an 8 year old niece; in addition to our two middle schoolers. I am very family oriented, business-minded and I love pouring into teenagers. I have served in youth ministry, the past 22 years, and I currently love and support your youth that are involved in our CtR youth group, middle school chapel and our Anglican summer camp.
