Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in my house, and try me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10

Meet the Team
Keith Scott joined the Central California Conference in 2000. Born in Jamaica, he moved to Canada as a teenager, where he studied business, finance and accounting and earned his MBA, CPA, CFP (Certified Financial Planner-Canada), and CGA (Certified General Accountant-Canada), served as Associate Treasurer of the Ontario Conference, and as Undertreasurer for Central California Conference.
“Because everything belongs to God, we are merely stewards,” says Keith, who bases his financial philosophy on 1 Chronicles 29:11-12. “We must manage God’s assets wisely and be careful in spending, saving, educating & investing. We must seek wise and expert counsel when necessary. And most importantly, we must pray for His leading in handling His assets. Whenever I encounter an accounting challenge, I pray for God's guidance, and he always reveals the solution. I encourage my staff to do the same.”
Keith enjoys spending time with his family, running, hiking and playing table tennis and soccer.
