Staff - Parish Relationship (SPR)

Staff/Parish Relationship (SPR) is a committee working to supervise and maintain staff for all non-clergy positions in the church. Responsibilities include setting job descriptions, advertising, interviewing and hiring qualified candidates.

Our pastor, Steve Berger, and his family were assigned by the annual conference to our church in June of 2016. We are blessed by their presence and we look forward to making more disciples under their leadership.

Andrew Alegria now heads our traditional music ministry. Weiying Tang joins him as accompanist for the traditional service.

Zack and Becca Pittman joined our staff in July, 2012. They lead programs for our children, youth, and young adults.

Our Little Lambs Mother’s Day Out program is expanding. We now have 4 classes: 1 ½ year olds, 2 year olds, 3 year olds and 4 year olds. All classes operate 3 days a week following the Ascension Parish School System's calendar.
