On Wednesday, March 8, Brent Plubell accepted the invitation of the North Pacific Union Conference Executive Committee to become their undertreasurer, effective May 1, 2023.
Plubell became vice president for finance just in time to navigate the uncertainties of the pandemic period. During his tenure, he became known by committee members and staff as a thoughtful person who had the ability to take complex financial realities and explain them in simple terms, making them understandable for anyone. He has been an integral part of the Oregon Conference finance team since he joined as assistant treasurer in 2014. Now his work will impact the entire five-state region of the NPUC.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time here in the office,” Plubell said. “I’ll miss working with this team every day. Yet, I’m excited for this new opportunity. I believe this new challenge will suit my skillset well. I’m eager to be able to work with treasurers across the NPUC in this role.”
“God has blessed Oregon Conference through the service of Brent Plubell in all his roles in which he has served,” noted President Dan Linrud. “It has been a privilege and joy to share the past four years with Brent in our conference administration. He has provided excellent financial leadership and insightful, meaningful contributions. He will be missed in our conference, but we celebrate with Brent in God’s new leading for his service with the NPUC team. We are glad that he will remain in our area.”
The search for a new VP for finance begins immediately. The Oregon Conference bylaws require that a recommendation for a treasurer/VP for finance be brought to a joint nominating committee and executive committee to be elected for the remainder of the current five-year term.
Please join us in praying for Brent as he transitions to his new role, and for the search process as the committee seeks God’s plan for the next VP for finance.
