DAWNELLE GUENTHER

Administrator / Graphic Design

Dawnelle began working at SLC in December of 2006. Her love for this church is deeply rooted in her childhood. Her parents were 2 of 17 charter members that began the congregation in 1964. When she's not working at the church she loves spending time with family. In her "free" time she works as a novelist.

ALLISON PENNER

Business Manager

Allison has been a member of South Langley Church since 1994, and is a familiar face onstage as part of the Worship band.  In July 2021 she joined the SLC staff team.  Her day job is to ensure that the business side of SLC runs smoothly, but she can be found playing the bass guitar on her lunch breaks, and is often the only staff member using the motorcycle parking.
