Mark A. Remboldt Elected NPUC Treasurer

The North Pacific Union Conference has selected Mark A. Remboldt as treasurer. The unanimous Executive Committee action during its regular meeting on April 30 officially fills the spot left vacant by the decision of former treasurer Norman Klam to apply for medical disability.

Remboldt has worked as the NPUC undertreasurer since January 2005 and has a rich background of domestic and international financial management experience. He assumes this new position with an overwhelming level of support from current Seventh-day Adventist Church leadership. "We are enthusiastic about Mark Remboldt's acceptance of these responsibilities," says Jere Patzer, NPUC president. "He has unquestioned abilities in the areas of church finance and policies, and has demonstrated over the years a clear commitment to the mission of our church in the Northwest and around the world."

Following his 1981 graduation from Walla Walla College (now University) in College Place, Wash., Remboldt served as a business intern and accountant at the Northern California Conference in Pleasant Hill, Calif. From 1985 to 1991, he worked as an accountant and assistant treasurer for the Eastern Africa Division of the church in Harare, Zimbabwe. He and his family then moved to Silver Spring, Md., where he served until 1996 as a treasury project specialist for the General Conference, the world headquarters for the Adventist church.

Since then, Remboldt has gained additional experience as treasurer for the Mountain View Conference in West Virginia; vice principal for finance at Auburn Adventist Academy in Auburn, Wash.; and, from 2001–2005, as treasurer of the Washington Conference, based then in Bothell, Wash.

Remboldt holds an M.B.A. from Andrews University and is a member of the business honor society, Delta Mu Delta. He and his wife, Janette, make their home in La Center, Wash., and have two children: Anthony, 20, a student at Walla Walla University, and Amy, 17, a senior at Auburn Adventist Academy.

NPUC leaders have initiated a search process for a new undertreasurer to fill Remboldt's former position.
