On Friday March 1, Brian Gosney announced to the Oregon Conference team that he has accepted a call to become a Senior Auditor for the General Conference Auditing Service (GCAS). He will conclude his service in the Oregon Conference on March 31, and start in his new role shortly thereafter.
“Brian Gosney has been a significant member of the Oregon Conference Treasury team for the past eight years,” commented President Dan Linrud. "He has been a warm, friendly presence for his coworkers and others, who have had the pleasure of relating to him. He has provided dependable, steady, hardworking service to the conference office and field during his years of treasury ministry. Since Brian’s election as Oregon Conference Treasurer in 2017, he has been a blessing to the Administrative team and Office, the Executive Committee and constituency. Brian has a big heart for God and for the mission of the church. We will miss him as he moves on to serve with GCAS. Our prayers for Brian, and his wife Sharon, are for the Lord to continue to abundantly bless them in their lives and service to him.”
"It has been my honor to serve as the Treasurer,” Gosney wrote in announcing the change. "I’m thankful for the trust that you’ve put in me along the way. The decision to move on was difficult. Yet as surely as I know that God called me to the Oregon Conference, I feel His call today toward this next chapter of ministry. I am confident that the right administrative and treasury team is in place to carry the Conference through this transition and into the next level of mission growth."
The search for a new Treasurer commences immediately. In the interim we have confidence that our current treasury team, led by Undertreasurer Brent Plubell, will be able to effectively serve the needs of the Oregon Conference and its constituents.
Brian and his wife Sharon will stay in the Portland area as Brian takes on his new responsibilities at GCAS.
"I solicit your prayers as I start in this new calling,” Brian writes. "And I invite you to join me in praying for the Oregon Conference as the search for my successor begins."
