Accounting

 



Keith Scott, Under Treasurer

Keith Scott joined the Central California Conference in 2000. A Jamaican by birth, Keith moved to Canada as a teenager, where he studied business, finance and accounting and earned his MBA, CPA, CFP (Certified Financial Planner-Canada), and CGA (Certified General Accountant-Canada), and served as Associate Treasurer of the Ontario Conference.


Keith’s responsibilities as Undertreasurer include overseeing all accounting work, assisting with budget preparations, and reporting to various departments, committees and boards.


“Because everything belongs to God, we are merely stewards,” says Keith, who bases his financial philosophy on 1 Chronicles 29:11-12. “We must manage His assets wisely and be careful in spending, saving, educating & investing. We must seek wise and expert counsel when necessary. And most importantly, we must pray for His leading in handling His assets. Whenever I encounter an accounting challenge (primarily in reconciliation), I pray for God's guidance, and he always reveals the solution. I encourage my staff to do the same.”

 
Keith is married to Rose, an IT professional with a background in finance, accounting, and dentistry. She is currently a full-time mother to the Scott’s two young sons, Samuel and Josiah. Keith enjoys spending time with his family, running, and playing table tennis and soccer.


2 Tim 1:7 has encouraged Keith many times through the years. “Fear does not come from God. Instead, God gives us power, love, and sound mind,” he explains. “Whatever challenges and difficulties come our way, we can trust in God and know that He will take care of us and stand by us.”

 


Bonnie Moseley, Accounts Receivable, Church Remittances

For 16½ years, Bonnie Moseley ran the front office for a Fresno dentist. She did scheduling, insurance billing, and interacted with patients. When he sold his practice, she saw an opening at the Central California Conference office and began work in the Accounting Department in October, 2007.


“I’m technically the cashier,” says Bonnie, “but I do a lot more than that.” She handles and receipts all the money that comes into the conference office. She receives all the tithes and offerings from conference churches, records its and sends it on to the union offices. At the end of each month, quarter and year, she creates reports on the monies received.


“The environment in the conference office is very positive,” she says, “and I enjoy the people I work with.”


Bonnie’s two daughters are her biggest joy. Her older daughter, Jennifer, and her husband Tim, are both dental interns. They are expecting their first baby. Heather is studying psychology and is still at home with Bonnie.
