We are delighted to inform you that Linda Malik, our part-time Bookkeeper has agreed to take on the additional role of Acting Church Administrator.
Grady Deaton, who has served as our church administrator since February, 2015 has departed our employ to take on an exciting new opportunity. We wish him grace and God’s blessings on his way forward.
Linda is now managing the day-to-day hospitality and operations at Sanctuary. She brings leadership, strong organizational skills and project management experience to our efforts to build-out best practices for communication and administration of our ministry.
Linda is also working with the Leadership Circle and Pastoral Staff to improve operational efficiency, document protocols and implement additional tools for managing our work–including a new data base and social media interactions.
Over the next 6 weeks, the Leadership Circle will assess the current job descriptions for the (2) positions in which Linda is now serving to consider how best to manage the load and roles therein – and will adjust those positions as called for from the assessment – guided by our vision for ministry and finances. Once this has been clarified, there will be a permanent hiring decision.
We are grateful that Linda has been wiling to step in. She has been a gift to our progress and our church. And, we thank God!
