OUR LEADERS

“Jesus made clear to James and John that high position in the Kingdom of God is reserved for those whose hearts, even the secret places where no one else probes, are qualified.” (Oswald Sanders) All spiritual leaders should apply themselves diligently to becoming and staying qualified in accordance with Biblical principles of leadership:
God fearing | Capable & Competent | Honesty with integrity | Incorruptible, immune to bribery | Well respected, trusted with good reputation | Full of the Holy Spirit | Full of wisdom | Prepared to be closely examined (Accountability) | Seasoned Spiritual leadership
Collaboration, respect, humility, excellence are hallmarks of good leaders. (1 Timothy 3:8-12, Exodus 18:21, 2 Peter 1:5-1, 1st Timothy 3:6, Luke 12:48) 
To whom much has been committed, of them will more be asked.  Such is the role of spiritual leaders.  Development in these areas is not automatic for Christians.  Rather it is the growth that is experienced through the trials, joys and life experience of the leader.

TREASURER – PETER DOSE
 
Peter is happily married to Letitia, and they have 3 great kids – Kaylee who is 16, Jayvin is 14, and Shayla turning 12 this year.  The family live in Landsdale so the children can attend our Adventist school there.  Peter graduated from Avondale College, where he met Letitia, with a Bachelor of Business & Computing.  After Letitia graduated from primary teaching, they married and lived in Melbourne where Peter was an accountant for Sanitarium.  A few years later Sanitarium moved them to the Central Coast of NSW, where Peter worked at the head office of Sanitarium for 7 years in various roles.  By the time Kaylee and Jayvin arrived, they decided it was time to move back to Letitia’s home state of Western Australia.  Peter secured a finance job with Goodman Fielder (Baking Division) where he worked for a few years, then moved to various financial and business analyst roles with Gold Corporation and The Perth Mint before accepting his current roles as Chief Financial Officer for the Western Australian Conference.  Peter enjoys serving God in whatever setting asks him to be in, and he finds that mixing his love of finance with directly serving the church to be extremely fulfilling.  His passion is helping people solve problems, improve process, unravel complexity, and implementing strategy that is driven by mission and vision.
