In the December 13 newsletter, we gave you an update on Office Manager Elizabeth Takla’s departure and shared that the Personnel Committee was in the process of finalizing a contract with an accounting firm that specializes in churches. We have contracted with Trinity Concepts, which works with a number of churches in the area, to support us through a transition period of 3-4 months.

Their founder, and our contact with Trinity, is Burke Raper. Learn more about Burke. You can contact Burke directly at finance@wpcdurham.org. He will be around WPC most mornings in January and February, so stop by and introduce yourself! Please direct any finance-related questions to him.

Over the next few months, the Personnel Committee will assess the church’s needs in financial oversight and property management, develop a job description, and begin a search by the spring. Our Administrative Assistant Barb Schmidt will help triage any property-related questions, and you can call her at the church office (919-489-4974, ext. 100).
