So many big decisions regarding the direction, vision, and life of our church are made by our Board of Elders. This group of amazing, behind-the-scenes leaders is elected by our members, serve as volunteers, and are instrumental to who we are as Southridge. This year, you appointed two new elders - we already heard from one of them back in September, and today we are excited to introduce you to the other. Dee Neuman is not a stranger to this podcast (check out her episode about Resiliency back in May of this year!), and has such a heart for the people of Southridge. You won't want to miss this conversation and the chance to get to know her a bit better.
