TODD SLABAUGH - ASSISTANT PASTOR, New Life Christian School PRINCIPAL
I’m Todd and I’m the assistant pastor at RNLC. My main responsibility is to lead NLCS as the principal and serve as a pastor to our staff, students and parents. Among my responsibilities are the general administration of the church. I plan and lead the Sunday service and help implement the plans of the pastoral staff.
I am also responsible for teaching Sunday school (either adult or youth), occasional preaching, planning, overseeing the physical plant (along with the Trustees). My heart’s desire is to see people become mature in their faith and to then see them reach out to others.
My wife Jenny and I have been married since February 28, 1998. We have 4 kids, Nathaniel, Aaron, Moriah, and Peter.
I grew up in Whitefish, Montana at the base of a ski resort. Jenny grew up in beautiful Central New York. We met at a training program in Alabama for community leaders from third world countries focusing on community development and appropriate technology. Once we were married we moved to New York in the fall of 1998.
During our time at Randallsville, we have been involved with a variety of ministries. Jenny and I are both active in communicating with our missionaries and organizing short term teams from our church. Jenny teaches at New Life Christian School (the largest ministry of our church) and has led numerous women’s Bible studies. In January of 2008 I followed God’s calling and became the assistant pastor.
EDUCATION: B.S. from Seattle Pacific University. Certificate of Christian Community Development and Appropriate Technology from SIFAT and MA.Ed in Educational Leadership from Concordia University, St. Paul.
JERRY SALIBA - PASTOR EMERITUS
Pastor Jerry Saliba and his wife, Diana, served as senior pastors at RNLC for 25 years, before stepping down in 2006. Pastor Jerry continues to serve at RNLC as Pastor Emeritus, occasionally preaching and leading services.
During those 25 years, Randallsville experienced growth from a small congregation to a growing community, and the start of many ministries and outreach, including the start of New Life Christian School, a main ministry of the church.
Pastor Jerry hasn't really "retired" though. He is currently involved in itinerate preaching and overseeing Men's Ministry offering monthly breakfasts for area men.
Pastor Jerry and Diana live in Morrisville, NY, and are a continual blessing to the RNLC family with their wisdom and guidance.
