Remnant Fellowship Community Leaders

Gwen Shamblin

Gwen Shamblin

With degrees in biochemistry and nutrition from the University of Tennessee, Gwen Shamblin created a weight loss philosophy that integrates spirituality called the Weigh Down diet. She went on to become a New York Times bestselling author with her book, The Weigh Down Diet. In addition, Gwen Shamblin founded the Remnant Fellowship Church, headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee. With locations across the US, the church’s leadership has grown through people who have benefited from her teachings.

The leadership in Remnant Fellowship Church is full of strong marriages and beautiful families. One such couple is Brandon and Elizabeth Hannah, son-in-law and daughter of Gwen Shamblin. Parents to four children, Brandon and Elizabeth help lead the church’s youth group that meet on Saturday nights for fellowship and talk about their faith.

David and Jennifer Martin are two of the founding members of the Remnant Fellowship Church, and through that connection, improved their marriage, their finances, and their relationships with their five children. David and Jennifer also live in Brentwood to be close to the church.

Tedd and Candace Anger, originally from New York City, became leaders with Remnant Fellowship in 2001. They began to visit the Nashville church location after having gone through the church’s faith based weight loss program, Weigh Down, and their commitment to the Church community increased. In 2002 they moved to Brentwood to be close to the main church location. Tedd now serves in many capacities in the Church, as does Candace, both of whom are regular cohosts on Remnant Fellowship TV’s “You Can Overcome” show.
