Montana Conference began 2015 with several new staff members in the office.

Nathan Shaw is the new accountant and assistant treasurer. He is replacing longtime employee Kristi Rich, who is going to work as a full-time mom to her son. Shaw and his wife, Gabi, come from the Walla Walla, Wash., area where Shaw was recently working as a staff accountant at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Pendleton, Ore. He is a graduate of Upper Columbia Academy in Spangle, Wash., and Walla Walla University. Shaw enjoys building computers and is an avid Seahawks fan.

Marshall McKenzie is joining the Montana conference as the new literature director and outreach coordinator. This new position was made possible by a matured trust, and conference staff are excited with all the possibilities this area will open for literature evangelism. McKenzie and his wife, Rosemary, plus their three children have just returned from Metn, Lebanon, where he was the publishing coordinator in the Middle East and North Africa Union. A graduate of Southern Adventist University in Collegedale, Tenn., Shaw has worked in the Michigan and Wisconsin conferences as a pastor and publishing director.

Victor Infante has been hired to work in the Billings area as the new Hispanic Bible worker. Infante brings a wealth of experience in opening new Spanish-speaking churches in the Pacific Northwest. For the past 11 years he has worked in the Washington Conference and has been instrumental in developing churches all over Washington. The Montana Conference is excited about the possibility of establishing its first Hispanic church.
