Board of General Superintendents Announces New General Treasurer for Denomination

Jul 5, 2016

The Board of General Superintendents (BGS) announced the election of Keith Cox as general treasurer. The Church of the Nazarene General Board elected Cox on June 30 and he has accepted the position.

The general treasurer is the chief financial officer for the denomination, “having custody of all funds belonging to the general interests of the Church of the Nazarene” (Manual 330.1).

Cox is the president and a board member for both North American Savings Bank and its holding company, NASB Financial, Inc., in Kansas City. He has held numerous other positions at NASB, including chief financial officer, and has led various financial, accounting, and administrative endeavors.

David A. Busic, chair of the BGS and member of the General Treasurer Nominating Committee, was pleased with the General Board’s decision.

“We are thrilled that through our extensive search process God has led us to find Keith Cox, whose professional experience and expertise, coupled with churchmanship, has uniquely prepared him to serve the Church of the Nazarene in this capacity,” Busic said. “Keith has a proven track record as a servant of Christ who daily lives out the mission of the Church of the Nazarene.”

Cox earned an MBA, with a concentration in finance, from Rockhurst University and a bachelor’s degree in business administration, with an accounting concentration, from MidAmerica Nazarene University.

He is actively involved in ministry and service through JESUS Film Harvest Partners, Work & Witness, Nall Avenue Church of the Nazarene, and as a Board of Trustees member at MNU.

He and his wife, Julie, have a deep passion for Christ, the Church of the Nazarene, prayer, and service for the Kingdom.

“Throughout the general treasurer search process, I clearly sensed the Lord’s leading into this full-time service,” Keith said. “I am humbled and honored to serve the church as general treasurer and I’m deeply grateful for the legacy of excellence that Dr. Marilyn McCool leaves our denomination.”

McCool resigned May 2 after 14 years of service in the position.

Keith and Julie reside in Olathe, Kansas. They have two adult daughters.

He begins his service as general treasurer July 25.
