New Staff Announcements


Over the last few months, our church staff has lost a few faces and gained a few new ones. Our Staff-Parish Relations Committee has hired three new staff members since November of last year, and we are excited to officially announce them.

Ryan Russell
Associate Music Minister AND Administrative Assistant

Ryan has been part of our staff for over eight years, using his gifts in the Gathering and Traditional services. Now he'll be the friendly one who will welcome you in or chat with you on the phone, in addition to continuing to bless us with his musical talents. Welcome, Ryan, to your new role!


Bill LaGrange
Facilities Manager

After many years of faithful membership and ministry volunteering, we are blessed to have Bill step into the role of Facilities Manager. He truly views this position as a ministry; readying our spaces for guests, programming, and worship. Welcome, Bill!


Lauren Schrepfer
Director of Marketing & Communications
With a degree in public relations, marketing agency experience, and producing our worship media and live-stream, Lauren stepped into the communications role in November. She has jumped in with both feet and loves creating content for Searcy First. Welcome, Lauren!
