Senior Pastor Transition

Updated: June 22, 2022

This fall, Pastor Zarlengo announced that the Lord has led him to transition from the role of Senior Pastor here at SGT. This Sunday, June 26, we will be honoring Pastor Gary and Sister Diane on their last Sunday at SGT! We will have coffee and cake following both services and celebrate their 32 years of faithful ministry here at SGT (22 of which as Senior Pastor!) Please consider joining us.

This moment is bittersweet for our church community as his leadership and ministry have impacted and transformed so many lives. At the same time, we honor his faithfulness to God and trust God’s faithfulness to bring the right pastor in to lead our church. You can watch Pastor Z’s announcement below.

Per our church’s bylaws, our Combined Board created a Pulpit Search Committee to search for potential candidates. As of Sunday, 6/19, they have submitted a candidate to the Combined Board to be interviewed. If the Combined Board votes in favor, this candidate will be presented to the church membership for voting. You can watch the most recent update video below for more detailed information.

We ask for your continued prayer for our church as we seek God’s will for the future of Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle. We will continue to post the most recent updates to this page on our website.
