Dear family and friends of St. John's,
There is always sadness when a colleague leaves St. John's, yet much excitement for where their lives are headed. That is the case with Lori Anderson, our finance administrator. Lori has resigned from her position to spend more time with her family and specifically help her husband at work. "Since January, God as been nudging me to move in a different direction in my life," explained Lori. "While I wholeheartedly believe God led me to this job, I know he is leading me to leave."
Lori was hired last year after the retirement of Barbara Catoe whose career at St. John's spanned almost 30 years. During that transition, Lori's business and accounting experience from Blue Cross Blue Shield shined. Without missing a beat, she mastered the daily procedures of non-profit accounting, then fine-tuned reports for ministry teams, the finance committee and vestry. She gave finance insight on adopting new internal controls as well as tested and led the financial upgrade to ShelbyNext, our new church accounting and giving management system. Lori also leaves the church with an accounting procedures manual with written policies and guidelines for managing the area of finance on a daily, monthly and year-end basis.
St. John's is receiving applications for the position of finance administrator. The position is Open Until Filled. Check out the job announcement HERE.
