Director of Administration and Financeoffice: Ext 202
I have been a member of Grace for over 20 years, during which I was active on Stewardship, Trustees, Endowment, and Board of Finance, and on Church Council as Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer. I am excited about continuing to serve Grace in my role as Director of Administration and Finance. I am a Certified Public Accountant. I previously spent over 35 years in public accounting helping organizations with the accuracy of their financial records and reports, and consulting with them about the quality of their financial processes and their compliance with rules and regulations. I grew up in the Cleveland area and attended Miami University in Ohio. My wife, Beth Smoots, is also an active Grace member. We are the proud parents of two former Grace School students. Pierce works in Chicago for the international accounting firm of Ernst & Young and Annie attends Hamilton College in New York. I also serve on the Foundation and Charitable Boards of Bethesda Rehab and Senior Care. In my free time, I enjoy golfing, gardening and reading.
