Treasury Department


 Reggie Leach, Arizona Conference Treasurer and Stewardship Director


The Treasury Department handles the day-to-day financial affairs of the Arizona Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, The Arizona Conference Corporation of Seventh-day Adventists and the Arizona Adventist Scholarship, Inc.

Understanding that donated funds are a sacred trust, the Treasury Department is committed to fulfilling its duties with optimum efficiency and fiscal accountability. To promote integrity and responsibility, professional accounting procedures are carefully followed and reviewed at regular intervals.

Reggie Leach has left his 12-year assignment as vice president for finance for the Minnesota Conference to become Arizona Conference treasurer.  He follows Robert Hastings who accepted a post as CFO for Pacific Press Publishing Association.  

Leach’s wife and partner in ministry, Kelle, will teach grades three and four at Glenview Adventist Academy.  Their family includes three children, Theron, 25, Thane, 22, and Regina, 18.  The Leach family will reside in the beautiful Pinnacle Peak area of Phoenix.

Leaving Minnesota wasn’t an easy decision. “This has been a very tough decision,” Leach says, “but we feel God’s clear calling.  This is the first time among many ‘feelers of interest’ over the years that our ‘fleece’ has been answered.  We have always wanted to be where we can serve as a team. Therefore, a ministry calling needed to be for both Kelle and me.”

Leach is a tremendous supporter of the local church and especially Christian education. He believes in the missionary spirit supported by our church founding fathers, has worked in the mission field and has encouraged his children to participate in mission projects.

Always active in his local church, Leach has served as an elder and has been involved in evangelism, preaching, and stewardship training.

Leach was privileged to do mission service at Guam Micronesia Mission from 1999-2004 where he served as secretary-treasurer and director of stewardship and trust services.  His duties included all financial reporting, management and budgeting for six mission funds as well as financial direction for two medical clinics and seven academies.

From 1987-1999 Leach was vice principal and director of finance for Campion Academy in Loveland, Colorado.

Arizona Conference President Ed Keyes says, “Having Reggie on our team is such a blessing.  As I return to Arizona, it’s thrilling to see how God has chosen a very capable, personable and caring friend to join our close-knit Conference family. He comes with tremendous recommendations. I think Reggie is a perfect fit for our needs.”

Leach’s personal interests include travel, classic literature, basketball, bicycling, golf, running, and classical and jazz music.
