SEARCH TEAM UPDATES

SLCC Logo Mark For Dark-01


Youth Pastor/Director Search Team: The Youth Pastor Search Team has been diligently praying for direction in their search and has progressed through several stages of interviews with candidates who applied through a number of different avenues over the past few months. The Team has reviewed writing and teaching samples, while also getting to know the candidates on a personal level during multiple interviews with members of the Team. Currently, the Team is making final plans to present candidates to the Elders for another round of in-depth interviews and evaluation for the opportunity here at SLCC - these interviews should be completed during the month of June. Pray for all those involved in the next interviews that they will see clearly who God wants to place in this role that will directly impact the next generation for Jesus Christ!


Senior Associate Pastor Search Team: The Senior Associate Pastor Search Team continues to evaluate candidates presented by our search partners, the Aaron Hur Group. Each candidate is prayerfully considered based on a number of different criteria and the Search Team has the responsibility to view sermon videos and/or writing samples provided by each man, while also learning a little about the family that would be coming with them to SLCC. As the process continues over the next couple of weeks, several members of the Search Team may be conducting Zoom interviews with candidates they feel led to pursue further, while future on-site interviews will be scheduled with candidates who pass through for further evaluation. The Team is excited about how they have seen the Holy Spirit direct at each stage in this process, and are eager to see which man God will bring to fill this critical position at SLCC. Your prayers for wisdom and discernment are coveted as the Team is asking the Holy Spirit to make His will clear in this process.
