Finance Director

Reneé Schertzer is the Finance Director at COTN, encompassing all aspects of the ministry's day-to-day, overall and annual financial management.

A graduate from Seattle Pacific University in Accounting, Reneé has 18 years of experience in accounting, auditing, and financial management within private industries, local government and nonprofits. While reading a Kitsap Sun newspaper article in 2001, Reneé learned about COTN. Her husband, Dave, joined COTN's staff soon after and in 2005, Renee became COTN’s first Finance Director. “I was called by the Lord to use my skills to serve His children,” she says.

Reneé has been married to her husband, Dave, for 18 years and the two love hiking, boating and traveling. Renee says much of her discipline and perseverance comes from the eleven years she spent in ballet school.
