After a lengthy search for a new assistant treasurer, the Ohio Conference hired Roy Simpson. Simpson, son of a pastor, lived in five different countries while growing up in Central America.

He opted to study accounting because he “wanted to work for the church, and numbers have always been my strongest area in school," he shares. Simpson has a bachelor’s in business administration, and expects to complete an MBA in finance in about a year.
While living in Cleveland, Simpson was very active in the Ebenezer Spanish church. He continues to work with the youth in the area, and is helping coordinate a Hispanic youth festival. "I hope to give my best [to] the Ohio Conference because I consider serving God and this church a big privilege and responsibility. ... Serving this church has always been my dream, and I'll put all my heart to give the best of me," he says.
Simpson replaces Nancy Barnett, who served as associate treasurer for more than four years.
