We are excited to announce our new Executive Director of Administration, Edward “Scooter” Leonard!
Scooter will be joining us from a similar role at St. James UMC in Montgomery, Alabama. He has served in the Executive role at this large church since 2008 after serving at First UMC in Kentucky for ten years. He has a background in finance, facilities, HR and staff supervision, working with the elected committees of Trustees, Finance, SPR and church council, as well as history in million dollar building and renovations projects. He also comes to us with experience in the role of a large United Methodist Church, and the connectional work which often happens behind the scenes, such as year-end and charge conference reports, insurance work and vendors and contracts.
Scooter and his wife have two adult children who live here in Central Florida. His son’s family lives in Spring hill and his daughter works at Disney and attends St. Luke’s. Scooter and his wife Nancy will be joining us beginning October 10th, and we are thrilled to welcome them into the St. Luke’s family!
