Troy Peoples is the new vice president of finance for the Mid-America Union Conference, having been invited by the MAUC Executive Committee at its March 19 meeting to serve in that position following Elaine Hagele’s recent retirement.

Peoples has 25 years of denominational service, having most recently worked as associate vice president for finance of the Mid-America Union Conference located in Lincoln, Nebraska. Prior to coming to MAUC he served in the Gulf States Conference for 18 years and for three years in Wisconsin Conference.

Thomas Lemon, president of the Mid-America Union Conference, said, “We are delighted our Committee has agreed with our recommendation for Troy to become the next vice president for finance. He comes with years of experience as a conference accountant and treasurer, after having received his BBA degree from Southern Adventist University. Troy has demonstrated the desired attitude, the necessary skills and the passion for the job in ways that will make this transition as seamless as possible as we move ahead.”

Peoples said he is looking forward to the challenge of helping all the Mid-America Union entities spread the good news of Jesus’ soon return by using the finances God has provided to help facilitate ministry at all levels.

Troy and his wife, Karen, have been married 25 years. They have one teenaged son, Brian.
