Harris Silcott is responsible for maintaining and updating Ahiah’s website; Social Media, Public Relations, Marketing; running the livestream for Sunday Celebrations; assisting with all office related tasks; coordinating practitioner volunteers and will soon be focused on cataloging congregants in Breeze, Ahiah’s online organization tool.  He is prepared to take on more responsibility as the church returns to an in-person format and people begin to come back in earnest.  While he only joined the Ahiah family at the end of 2020, Harris has been learning about the Science of Mind at the North Hollywood Center for Spiritual Living and at the CSL Teen Camps from a very young age.  He has served as a volunteer organizer for many events at the North Hollywood CSL and for the Teen Camp.  While he has experience serving spiritual communities, this is his first time in a purely Administrative position, and he is extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn about the inner workings of a CSL community in this capacity.  Before coming to Ahiah, Harris was working mainly as a healthcare provider for his Aunt through the In-Home Supportive Services. He is currently on leave from Sarah Lawrence College, but plans to return to finish his BA when spirit calls him to.
