Are You Being Called to Serve?
Are you being called to serve on SLC's Board of Trustees? Click here or on the image above for a personal testimony from former Board of Trustee George Piper. If you have been a Governing Member of Spiritual Life Center for at least one year, we invite you to go within and ask:
"Would serving on SLC's Board be for my and SLC's highest good?"
"Has my life been transformed by being a member of SLC?"
"Am I ready for a deeper commitment to my own spiritual growth?"
"Am I willing to learn more and to commit to being a high conscious Board member?"
"Am I willing to give of my time and talents to learn more about and support SLC's integral ministry practice and mission to Transform Lives as we Love, Serve, and Remember?"
If you are curious or feel even the smallest of inclination that you are being called to serve on the SLC Board, below are details to help you in your discernment process.
