Wintermeyer Accepts Communication Position
The Upper Columbia Conference Executive Committee voted Dec. 9, 2008, to invite Jay Wintermeyer to fill the position of communication director. Following discussions with conference administration, Wintermeyer accepted the call.
He is uniquely qualified for the position because of his strong background in print design, video production, Web development and marketing.
Wintermeyer graduated from Walla Walla University in 1996 with a degree in broadcast communications. After graduation, he moved to Wenatchee, Wash., where he managed KPLW 89.5 FM, a Christian radio station operated by Positive Life Radio.
In 2000, Wintermeyer moved to Michigan to head the communication department for Adventist Frontier Missions. His responsibilities included executive editor of their magazine, video production for broadcast television on 3ABN and the Hope Channel, public relations, event planning and Web programming. Most recently, he has worked from home in Farmington, Wash., for companies providing Internet, graphic design and video services.
"Since my beginnings as editor of my high school newspaper," says Wintermeyer, "I've always been inspired by communication excellence. It's what I strive for. I'm honored to work with the Upper Columbia Conference team to further the gospel in the Inland Northwest."
Wintermeyer assumed his new responsibilities in the wake of the blaze that destroyed the conference office on Dec. 28, 2008.
