Introducing the New Minister on Staff!

Dear Shandon Family, 

I am very excited to share with you about an upcoming transition that will take place at the first of the year. 

David Taylor will be transitioning from the College Ministry to serve as the Minister of Evangelism and Missions. Pastor Lincoln, David and I have been praying and talking through this transition for the past couple of months. This was difficult only because David has done such a terrific job as our College Minister for the last 7 years. We have been blessed to have David and his wonderful family here at Shandon, and I am super excited we get to keep them here as he takes on this new role. David brings to his new role passion, excitement, and new ideas when working with our guest services and our evangelism and missions efforts. Please welcome David into this new position. 

I'm also excited to announce Billy Judge will become our new College Minister on January 1. Billy graduated from USC with his bachelor’s degree in 2012 and his master’s degree in teaching in 2013. Billy felt a call to ministry while in undergraduate school. He has been teaching at Hand Middle School and is currently working on his Master of Divinity at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Billy and his wife Sarah were both members of our college ministry while in school and have continued to serve as adult leaders. Billy has been an integral part of the ministry, mentored by David, and served in various capacities from teaching to on-campus evangelistic efforts to discipling students. We believe that God has well prepared him to step into this role.  

This past Sunday we celebrated David's transition to Minister of Evangelism and Missions and welcomed Billy to our ministerial staff as we affirmed his call to serve at Shandon as the College Minister. We look forward to seeing God continue to work through the ministries of our church as David and Billy assume their new leadership roles. Please keep them in your prayers.

Children's Auditions for The Singing Christmas Tree

main image

Dear Parents, 

Preparation for The  Singing Christmas Tree is almost upon us, and I wanted to let you know I have a few special roles open for children! I am holding auditions for these specific roles THIS Sunday, September 25 from 2pm-3pm in Room A223 (WAC & Children's Choir hallway). 

We are looking for 15 children in grades 2nd-6th  with energy and musical ability!

If your child would like to audition, please prepare them to sing a few lines of a song of their choice. We may run through a few additional exercises.  

I'm looking forward to hearing your children and helping them enjoy their audition experience, whether it's their first audition or they're a seasoned pro! Auditions are a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow and for some, to overcome their fears! I LOVE being a part of that! 

If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Rizzuti, the Children's Choir Coordinator. I look forward to seeing your child(ren) on Sunday!
