He attended Boston University School of Management, graduating with dual concentrations in Finance and Accounting. After getting his start in investment banking and private equity, Dipen currently works as Senior Vice President – Finance and Supply Chain for a distribution company.

Mark Hanchett

Junior Warden


After nearly thirty years as an Episcopalian, Mark became an Anglican in 2003 and has been loving the Anglican church ever since. He enjoyed a long career in education and administration, as a teacher of English, Bible, and math, and as a principal of three different high schools. He has lived and worked on both coasts, from California to Maryland. Mark and his wife Anne moved to the North Shore from Annapolis, MD in 2014 to be near three of their five children and enjoy the company of all of their grandchildren. They’ve been worshipping at CTR ever since, and particularly love singing in our choir. Mark loves the great and enduring music of the church. When he isn’t singing, you might find Mark organizing odds and ends around our church, or woodworking in his basement while listening to classical music.

Sarah Skinner



A native of Northern California, Sarah has lived on the North Shore for 18 years now and still finds herself occasionally confounded by the roads and drivers of Massachusetts. Sarah holds a master’s degree in violin performance and works as a freelance violinist as well as a violin teacher. In between renditions of Brahms symphonies or “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,” she is busy raising and homeschooling four daughters. She attends the 11 am service at CTR with her daughters, but her husband Nathan is conspicuously absent, as he is director of music at Park Street Church in Boston. Sarah grew up in a contemporary evangelical church, and now delights in discovering the traditions of liturgy and the celebration of the Church year. She is particularly passionate about implementing Church year observations and celebrations in the home. She and her family reside in Danvers, in a 100-year-old house perpetually in need of renovations.

Andy French



Andy has been at CTR since the beginning in 2009. He has served on Finance Advisory Committee since that time. He previously served on Vestry as an at-large member from 2010-2011 and as treasurer from 2011-2019. Andy is an avid long time member of the CTR choir. He lives in Lexington and is a proud father and grandfather to three children and two grandchildren.

Frank Candido



Frank and Beth Candido joined CTR in 2013. Frank works in insurance and enjoys long walks on the beach, CTR community life, and fine dining at the Georgetown 2:42 “Chateau Wellwood.”

Dan Hemmerly-Brown



Originally from Down East Maine, I came to the North Shore to attend Gordon College in 1998 and I never left! I found CTR with my wife Jana about 6 months after it opened and we have been coming here ever since. We have been blessed to raise our three kids, Callum, Colette and Charlotte in Beverly and in the Church. I’m excited about bringing a “dad of young kids who also likes tech and sports” voice to the vestry and helping the church move forward in its vision.

Andrew Neill



Andrew grew up in Hamilton, MA attending Christ Church (Episcopal) of Hamilton/Wenham where he sang in three choirs, served as an acolyte and was active in the youth group. After graduating with a degree in Criminal Justice from Norwich University, the Military College of Vermont, he worked at Gordon College for 10 years.

In 2009 he was a founding member of CTR where he continues to sing in the choir and as an altar server. In 2018 having not performed in a theatrical production since 1999, he returned to the stage with the Imago Stage Company, whose home is here at CTR, appearing in both A Tale of Two Cities and Jane Eyre. Andrew now works for the Town of Hamilton and lives in the Merrimack Valley area with his wife, Sarah and three children. In the summer when he’s not working he can be either found on Crane Beach or on a golf course trying to stay out of the woods.

Kristin Peppler



Kristin attended Christ Church prior to joining Christ the Redeemer in 2009. She lives in Hamilton with her husband Charlie and is mother to four daughters, Sara, Grace, Eve and Helen. She is honored to have the opportunity to serve on the vestry during this important time in our church.

Janet Potts



Janet grew up in NJ and MD, but came to Massachusetts to attend Gordon College. And she never left, not only MA, but Gordon, where she has been working ever since she graduated. Janet was part of the split from Christ Church and has been at CTR ever since its founding. Her main ministry at CTR is singing in the choir, but when choir is on vacation you can find Janet in the nursery. Outside of work and church, Janet loves doing genealogical research, combining her loves of history and stories.

Chaz Woodstock



Having grown up in Gig Harbor, Washington, Chaz carries with him a deep-seated love for the west coast, but has developed a love of the North Shore after living here for over a decade. Chaz holds a bachelor’s degree from Gordon College, where he double-majored in music and economics. The economics degree probably helped him realize that getting a day job in something other than music wasn’t a bad idea, so today he works in software, overseeing the software implementation services team at Veracross – but still loves playing the piano whenever he gets a chance. He and his wife Jillian live in Georgetown with their two young children.
