“We are very excited about the experience, gifts, and talents the Slater’s bring to this appointment,” stated GBIM Director Mark Powell.  “But more than that, we are excited about the new level of partnership that exists between GBIM and SCC and the role the Slaters will play as both Senior Pastor family and Missionary family.”
