Meet Our Staff

Rick Hann

Senior Pastor
E-mail Rick Hann

Rick enjoys most everything in life. His passions are preaching the Word, encouraging others, and woodworking. He also loves everything Hawaii. Rick received his B.A. from Biola University and M.Div. from Talbot School of Theology. We at Grace have been glad to have him since 1998.

Ryan Masters

Youth Pastor and Worship Leader
E-mail Ryan Masters

Ryan has a passion for his wife Hilary, ministry and football (Go Buckeyes). He has a B.A. from William Jessup University and loves to see young people and the church body experience God in new ways.

Janet Hann

Children's Director
E-mail Janet Hann

Janet is a credentialed educator who loves her children Erik and Janelle. She has served on staff at Grace since 2000, and thinks that children can have both depth and fun at the same time. She likes hiking, kayaking, gardening, and photography. (And she’s one heck of a movie buff.)

 

Cheryl Morton

Office Manager & Worship Arts Ministry Coordinator
E-mail Cheryl Morton

Cheryl originally chose Grace as her home church in 1994 because of her connection through the worship music. We have been fortunate to have her on staff as our Office Manager since 2006, and since then she has also taken on responsibilities as our Worship Team Coordinator. If she’s not at the church office, you might find her mountain biking, jogging, or gardening.

Paula Dean

Secretary
E-mail Paula Dean

Paula, amazingly, is one of our founding members. One of the few things she enjoys more than watching the San Francisco Giants win a game is watching her grandkids. Paula has been serving in her current position as Administrative Assistant since 1999, and has also spent many years serving as one of our skilled pianists. Watching the Dodgers loose a game is also a favorite of hers.

Renee Tankard

Nursery Coordinator
E-mail Renee Tankard

Renee attended CSUS and received a B.A. in Psychology and a Masters in Counseling (Marriage, Family and Child.) She lived in England for 18 years and returned to Sacramento in 2008. Renee has volunteered in the nursery for a number of years and love caring for the youngest of our church family. She is very excited about being the new Nursery and Childcare Coordinator and having this opportunity to serve God and her church.
