Executive Director Announcement

The Serve The City Board is excited to announce our candidate for Executive Director: Carl Gonder. There still remain a few steps before the STC Board will make its final decision, and we desire your input along the way.
Next up: Please join us on December 10th at Noon for a formal presentation of Carl by the Board and Search Team. 
This will be an in-person meeting at Cornerstone Church (925 Blairs Ferry Road, Marion). We will meet in the sanctuary with masks and social distancing. (This meeting will replace the normally scheduled Leader Lunch for December.)

We will also offer a Facebook Livestream on the private STC Leader Lunch Facebook Group. (You need to become a member ahead of time to view the Livestream.)

At the meeting, you will hear more about why the Executive Director Search Team (Robin Tyner, Chelsey McDill, Matt Slippy, MaryLou Erlacher, Matt Proctor) and the STC Board (names listed below) have come to confirm Carl as a fantastic candidate. In addition, Carl himself will share his spiritual journey and how God has used past and recent events to prepare him to serve the LORD in this capacity. There will be some time for questions at the meeting, and the board will also offer a subsequent Zoom Meeting at 12:00 PM on December 15 for any remaining questions.
