Darin Gottfried, who has served as association/associate treasurer for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference since 2012, was appointed vice president for finance at a recent Conference Executive Committee meeting. He replaces Don Stricker, who retired after nearly 15 years as vp for finance.

Gottfried received a bachelor’s degree from Union College in business administration, with an emphasis in finance and accounting, and a master’s degree from Webster University in business administration.

Previously, Gottfried served in the finance department at Park Ridge Hospital in Fletcher, North Carolina, and as vice principal for finance at Wisconsin Academy.

President Ron Carlson said, “Darin will be a great addition to our officer team. Having watched him serve as our association/associate treasurer has revealed not only his financial expertise and good judgment, but his sincere commitment to the ministry of our conference. His youthfulness is an added benefit to the future of God’s church.”

John Treolo is communication director for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference.
