"...Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation." Mark 16:15
The Southern Union Information Systems (SUIS) Department exists to serve the internal needs of the Church, so that pastors, teachers, administrators, and staff can dedicate themselves to preaching, teaching, and governance in His Church. Our ministry is to aid and support the ministry, just as Stephen did in the early Church.
We exist to concurrently serve the Southern Union office and its personnel, but also, and more broadly, to serve the eight conferences and their respective senior academies. This latter responsibility increasingly represents the bulk of our work. Five years ago, 70 percent of our work consisted of serving the local Southern Union (SU) office personnel. Today, approximately 70 percent of our work is supporting and partnering with the eight conferences and their senior academies.
AUGUST 2014 - We're just about done consolidating payroll throughout the Southern Union! Currently, we are processing payroll for more than 4,000 individuals, including pastors, teachers, administrators, and the staff at the churches, schools, education centers, daycares, and administrative offices scattered across the territory. We provide these services at no cost to the Southern Union entities.
The SUIS team includes Andy Russell (left), intern; Milton Sand, associate director; Richard Stephenson, director; David Koliadko, accounting support engineer; and Leonard Fernandez, support engineer
