Welcoming New Staff Members!

Hey Church Family,

Allow me to introduce to you two new members of our staff at Immanuel.


First, let me introduce to you, Leslie McAuley.

She is assuming the role of Assistant Pastor. She and her husband Rodney have been longtime friends of Immanuel, and we are thrilled about her willingness to join our leadership community! She has experience in many types of ministry, including church planting. She holds an MA in Theology from Whitworth University. She will serve in preaching in worship + provide some administrative help, but will give most of her time to developing new outreach strategies. We are so blessed to welcome Leslie to Immanuel.

Secondly, meet Jackson Lino.

He will assume the role of a Worship Service Coordinator. He has experience in sound reinforcement, recording, and also church planting. He also serves in the leadership of our partner community that meets on Sunday evenings here at YFC called Fountain of Hope Community (You should check it out - they meet at 4:30 pm every Sunday). It is a vibrant, fast growing, Pan-African community. Jackson, himself originally from Sudan, Africa, also works at World Relief servicing Spokane's refugee community. Please, also welcome Jackson. We are so grateful to have him!


I see the church as a people that is ever moving and ever-changing. I am persuaded that God will use these two remarkable people to continue to move us into what He dreams for us.
