SEARCH TEAM UPDATES


Youth Pastor/Director Search Team: JARED GERETY has accepted the call for Youth Director at SLCC. He will start the beginning of January 2023.


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.
