Yvonne House retired from serving as the Upper Columbia Conference (UCC) Corporation treasurer at the end of April. She served the Adventist Church for more than 40 years, working primarily in financial management.
House began her church service here in the Northwest at the North Pacific Union Conference office following her graduation from Walla Walla University. Her career led her from the Pacific Northwest to Southern California and back again to UCC, where she was born and raised.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Yvonne," says Andrew McCrary, UCC trust services director. Her dependable, conscientious care for God's finances and heart for ministry have been an enormous blessing through the years.
In March, the Upper Columbia Conference executive committee voted to ask Jimmy Johnson to serve as the conference corporation treasurer. Johnson has worked with UCC for many years as the corporation assistant treasurer.
