The Iowa-Missouri Conference is pleased to announce the addition of assistant treasurer Marlene Perry to the conference office family.

A true answer to prayer, Perry comes at just the right time. A few months ago, former assistant treasurer Donna Wallace informed the conference that she would be leaving but could stay a while longer while the conference searched for a replacement. God was preparing the way as Perry’s husband, Stan, had just received a job transfer to Des Moines and Perry was beginning to search for employment opportunities in the area.

Perry’s experience includes serving as a controller, human resources and office manager for CPA firms in Denver, Colorado and Minneapolis, Minnesota. She also served for several years in the Rocky Mountain Conference as an administrative assistant and interim youth director.

“Marlene’s years of experience working both for the church and in the corporate world are already proving invaluable,” said Rhonda Karr, conference treasurer. “We’re excited about what the future holds.”

Perry feels blessed to once again be working in an environment where outreach and furthering the ministry of Christ are top priorities. “One of the highlights of my job will be assisting and enabling others in ministry as we all work toward the common goal of spreading the love of Christ,” she said. “I look forward to meeting our constituents and growing together in our continued walk with Jesus.”

The Perrys have two adult children, Shawn and Heather, who are both graduates of Union College.
