A warm South welcome to Travis Parks!
South Church is pleased to welcome Travis Parks to our ministry staff! For the next year, Travis will be working in partnership with Pastor Neil to lead the Cutting Edge College Ministry. During this year, Travis will remain on staff with the Navigators and Pastor Neil will lead Cutting Edge. In May of 2021, Travis will become the sole official college pastor at South. At this time, Pastor Neil will transition to discipleship ministries at South. Travis and his wife Laura have been deeply valued members of our congregation for years and we are excited for this new role; and of course we look forward to the great work the Lord is bringing to Pastor Neil after 32 outstanding years of loving service in college ministry.
